July 2018

BBC Proms

Friday 14 July – Saturday 9 September, venues around London and the U.K. .

The 2017 season will again venture out, away from Royal Albert Hall, to venues around the Kingdom. Albeit not as far away as in 2016, venues include : Cadogan Hall, London, Stage@TheDock, Hull , Southwark Cathedral, London, Bold Tendencies Multi-Storey Car Park, Peckham, Wilton’s Music Hall, London and The Tanks at Tate Modern, London

The World’s Greatest Classical Music Festival does not offer the option to search the Proms section of the website for keywords like Dutch or Netherlands – that’s unfortunate; they do  allow to search for ‘Bernard Haitink’ (Prom #3, 16 July) or ‘Concertgebouw’, which is laborious and very much hit-and-miss.
