Overview

The greatest classical music festival on earth returns to London's Royal Albert Hall. It's time for the Proms! 

Each year the BBC Proms host two months of concerts, including the famous Last Night performances, world premieres of contemporary works and shows by a diverse range of artists.

This year commemorates the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War with a focus and reflection on the works of wartime composers, as well as songs and the musical legacy of the conflict. Among the highlights are a special War Horse prom featuring life-size puppets from the hit show, a performance of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem based on the poetry of Wilfred Owen, and Sally Beamish’s violin concerto inspired by Erich Maria Remarque’s novel All Quiet on the Western Front.

Another landmark in 2014 is the 150th anniversary of Richard Strauss' birth, which is marked by the performance of three of his complete operas and a number of choral concerts. 

In a continuing effort to promote artists from across the musical spectrum, the Proms welcomes singer Paloma Faith and versatile performer Rufus Wainwright for the first time; while the Pet Shop Boys take to the stage with their new piece, A Man from the Future, based on the life and work of wartime code-breaker Alan Turing.

Firm classical favourites make a return for the season, including the Berlin Philharmoniker, Cleveland Orchestra and Budapest Festival Orchestra. There are also first-time appearances from orchestras based in China, Greece, Iceland, Lapland, Qatar, Singapore, South Korea and Turkey.

The full programme is available from the BBC's website.

What are the Proms?

"Proms" is short for Promenade concert: informal and inexpensive concerts where Promenaders ("Prommers") pay just £5 for a ticket. Up to 900 Prommers can stand in the central Arena at London's Royal Albert Hall, and a further 500 can stand, sit or recline in the Gallery.
