WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The BBC presents the Proms in the Park, bringing the traditional atmosphere of the Last Night of the Proms to audiences around the K culminating in live big-screen link-ups with the Royal Albert Hall.
Join in the Last Night of the Proms celebrations in Hyde Park, as British pop legend Bryan Ferry heads a spectacular line-up including world-famous tenor Joseph Calleja with Proms in the Park favourites the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Richard Balcombe. Violin virtuoso Nigel Kennedy also makes a special appearance on the Hyde Park stage before hot-footing it to appear at the Last Night in the Royal Albert Hall - on the same night! Sir Terry Wogan presents the festivities and special guest Dame Edna Everage will be leading the traditional sing-a-long.
