Celebrate the return of live music and events this summer on Hampshire’s bucolic Broadlands estate

If you’re looking for fabulous things to do in Britain this summer, then look no further than Park Proms, an unmissable musical spectacular set in the outstanding, historic surrounds of the Broadlands estate. The country house itself is a fine example of mid-Georgian architecture and home to the Mountbatten family. Nestled in Hampshire’s Test Valley, the manor is surrounded by rolling parkland that was partly designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the 18th century.

Park Proms is your chance to bring your loved ones together within this beautiful landscape for an unforgettable weekend of live music between 27-28 August 2021. Park Proms is proud to host a range of world-class artists, sure to entertain the whole family. Night one, Friday 27 August 2021, features performances by the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra (RPCO), acoustic band The Travelling Hands and two very special guests: The Welsh baritone, former boy soprano, television and radio presenter, Aled Jones; and English mezzo-soprano, Laura Wright. The 78-piece RPCO celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2021 – all the more reason to take in their musical talents at this event.

They will play a “Last Night of the Proms”-style concert, showcasing a number of pieces from their broad repertoire, including the world-famous scores of some of the greatest film franchises such as Harry Potter, James Bond, Star Wars and Superman.

A premium night of pop music arrives in Broadlands on night two, Saturday 28 August 2021. James Morrison will be headlining, performing alongside special guests Pixie Lott, Scouting for Girls, and Eliza and The Bear. The all-British line-up will entertain guests with a compilation of much-loved chart-topping songs, as well as showcasing their latest releases. Their performances will be exclusive to Broadlands this summer, making it the ultimate south coast music show of 2021. In easy reach of New Forest National Park, the cultured cities of Winchester and Salisbury, and even the Isle of Wight, we very much recommend tying in a bit of sightseeing while you’re in the neighbourhood, too.

Doors will open at 4.30pm on both days, allowing guests to arrive early and enjoy the relaxed ambience in the run up to the main musical events of the evening. There will be a plethora of locally-based businesses supplying meals and snacks on-site, and a hospitality lounge for those seeking a VIP experience. Guests are also welcome to bring their own food and drink, and set up a picnic spot within the spacious estate – al fresco dining in stately home style – from which to enjoy what the night has in store. The local team behind Park Proms has made every effort to cater to all tastes and will ensure that your experience will be one of your very best this year.

Tickets are available now from the Park Proms website, and all customers are assured that their money and tickets are safe. If the event cannot take place, Park Proms offer a “ticket promise” – meaning you will either receive a full refund or carry your ticket over to 2022.
