The Proms 2019
August puts us right in the middle of one of the most magical times of year here in Kensington, especially for classical music fans.
The Proms are back with a programme chock full of performances at venues like the Royal Albert Hall and Cadogan Hall; both not too far from our doors.
Having a brief look at this year’s line-up, it’s hard to nail down what is a must-see show when there’s so much going on, but if we had to choose some of our highlights would be:
- Prom 20: Pekka Kuusisto and the BBC SSO – 3rd August
- Prom 27: The Sound of Space: Sci-Fi Film Music – 7th August
- Prom 40: Queen Victoria's 200th Anniversary – 16th August
- Prom 46: City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra – 22nd August
The Proms runs right through the month up to the final night in September. We can’t wait to experience the season, especially for the great time guests staying with us will have.
You can see the entire events listings on the BBC Proms website.
