BBC Proms in Kensington




Summer is one of the best times of the year to visit London and one of the key highlights of the season is the BBC Proms music festival. Each year the BBC's classical music festival takes over London's Royal Albert Hall and Cadogan Hall, as well as other venues in Kensington. For those staying in the Kensington area or in a Kensington serviced apartment, the events taking place are only a short walk away. From talks, films, family events and much more – there's lots to entertain you over eight weeks between July and September.

A hundred concerts are taking place as part of this festival. There are 76 concerts in the Royal Albert Hall, 19 at nearby Cadogan Hall and five Proms in the Park across the UK. There's a day devoted to Indian music, a free Family Prom, a Multiple Pianos day, late-night concerts, matinée concerts, family events, films, talks, the Proms Literary Festival, a whole weekend of back-to-back concerts at Cadogan Hall on the August bank holiday... so whether you're into Bach or Bollywood, arias or ukuleles, there'll be a concert for you this year!

Proms in the Park is an outdoor musical spectacular which takes place all across the UK (Belfast, Glasgow, Caerphilly and London). Book early to be a part of this celebration of classical music.

You can book by phone, online or in person at the Royal Albert Hall (note that you can select your own seat if booking online).
