If you didn’t manage to get to get a ticket to the ‘real thing’ and don’t fancy the jostling crowds in Hyde Park or an evening in front of the telly, why not celebrate with us at our Festive Promenade Concert at St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square? There will be lots of singing-along to Proms’ favourites such as Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and the National Anthem, as well as popular works by Britain’s favourite adopted composer, Handel, and his contemporary and compatriot J S Bach. Bring your hearts, your lungs, your voices and we’ll all have a great time!
