When: 10 Sep - 10 Sep 2017
Each show is centred around a live concert with its own high-profile artists, BBC orchestras and presenters. The evenings culminate in a live big-screen link-up to the Royal Albert Hall for the traditional participatory festivities and flag-waving which round off the world's largest music festival. All are invited to join the largest ever operatic chorus to sing the Bridal Chorus from Wagner's Lohengrin and the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic You'll Never Walk Alone.
In London's Hyde Park Sir Terry Wogan returns to present the 15th anniversary of Proms In The Park, while operatic legends Jose Carreras and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa are already confirmed there, with other top artists to be announced over the coming months.
Sir Terry says of the event: "Prawns in the Pork, Prams in the Dark, a rose by any other name... it is a privilege and an unalloyed pleasure to present Proms In The Park before the magnificent audience that packs Hyde Park. Come rain or shine, its high spirits are ever buoyant. It's an evening of flags and banners, joy and laughter. And magnificent music, ending with Land Of Hope And Glory from 40,000 loyal throats, as fireworks light up the night over Hyde Park."
Roger Wright, director of the BBC Proms says: "The Last Night Of The Proms is an event like no other – bringing together the UK for a night of singing, celebrations and merriment. We've devised a strong line-up of events this year and a wide range of venues to allow audiences everywhere to experience as one the magic of the Last Night Of The Proms."
