Proms at Powderham Castle

July 30, 2017, 5:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Last Night of the Proms concert at Powderham Castle on Sunday 30th July 2017.

World renowned Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra is returning to Powderham Castle after a five year absence this summer for a classical music extravaganza with spectacular fireworks.

Charlie Courtenay, The Earl of Devon, said: “It really will be the best of British – brilliant traditional Proms music, a spectacular ancient parkland setting, fireworks over the castle, a lot of flag-waving and sumptuous open-air picnics – and an evening not to be missed.”

The programme will consist of many of the traditional Proms pieces performed at the BBC Proms season at the Royal Albert Hall in London – plus a few surprises.

The celebrated BSO will be led by acclaimed French conductor Victor Aviat and will perform with two leading guest soloists (who are also the narrators) in the acclaimed husband and wife team of baritone Stephen Gadd and soprano Claire Rutter.
