The Proms, World’s Greatest Classical Music Festival, has started on 14th July this year. The Proms (which means promenade concert) is an eight-week summer season of daily classical music that mainly takes place at the Royal Albert Hall.
About 70 concerts take place over the 2 months period. They are usually free except for the final one called Night at the Proms which is a paid event.
The event which was created in 1895 also features some educational and children’s events as well as talks and workshops.
