Christmas at the Proms
Centrestage, 11am.

Both Christmas and the Last Night of the Proms are synonymous with some of the world’s best loved songs and more than their share of fun and frivolity.

We combine music from these two great festivals into a gala concert, full of famous Christmas carols and songs, flag waving classics like Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia, the Best of British Ballads, Gilbert and Sullivan, skits and jokes with even an appearance from Santa Claus and his little elves.

Music, madness, magic and mayhem makes for a marvelous way to celebrate the Christmas season.
