The concert includes a full programme of captivating classical music from the 60-piece New English Concert Orchestra plus a sensational freefall demonstration by The Red Devils parachute team, dramatic WWI cavalry display and groundshaking live fire from over 200 cannons!

This ‘party in the park’ concert features magnificent musical firework displays, culminating in a flag waving, sing-a-long, firework spectacular including Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory, as well as Beethoven’s ‘Battle Symphony,’ performed as he composed it: with 193 live firing Napoleonic cannons providing a thunderous percussion!
