Featuring the irresistible combination of the Hastings Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Marcio Silva, three soloists including Glyndebourne and Covent Garden regular, Louise Winter and a programme of everyone's favourite classics - all in the beautiful setting of Battle Abbey's 6th Penny Lawn. The concert will include everyone's operatic favourites such as "Marriage of Figaro" Overture, Delibes "Flower Duet, "Carmen" Overture and Toreador Song, Puccini's "Oh mio bambino" and "Nessun Dorma" and many more. Bring a picnic and enjoy a glass or two of Battle Brewery beer, prosecco, or wine purchased from the Prom Bar (please don't bring your own alcohol). _________________________________________________________________________ ANNOUNCEMENT: Sadly, there are threats of thunderstorms forecast for this evening. Together, The Hastings Philharmonic Orchestra and Battle Festival have decided that tonight’s Prom Concert at Battle Abbey should be moved to the Memorial Halls. We were determined that no matter what the weather, the Proms should take place. The decision to move the Concert to a smaller venue comes at a significant financial cost to Battle Festival as the audience size has been significantly reduced. I hope that you understand, therefore, that this decision was not taken lightly. Although there will no facilities for picnics etc there will be a bar available. Doors open at 6.30pm and the concert will commence will begin at 7.30. We look forward to seeing you on this special night in Battle.
