Hear a wide range of classical music in a season of informal concerts with the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall and in venues across London.
Each year the BBC Proms host two months of concerts over the summer, aiming to bring the finest classical music to as many people as possible at affordable prices and in an informal atmosphere.
From classical favourites to contemporary world premieres and family concerts, the BBC Proms offer a stage for leading musicians, singers, orchestras and soloists from across the world with a broad programme of music. The eight weeks of concerts culminate in the famous Last Night performances including BBC Proms in the Park, full of chanting and quirky traditions.

What is Promming at the Proms?
Proms is short for Promenade Concerts: informal and inexpensive concerts which feature the popular tradition of Promming. Promenaders (Prommers) paid just £6 in 2016 for a standing ticket in the central Arena or high-up Gallery of the Royal Albert Hall, with up to 1,350 standing places available. More than 500 standing tickets are usually available to buy on the door before each concert.
