With the first bank holiday of the year just around the corner, it’s hard not to get excited about the rest of summer…

A warm summer breeze, live tunes, picnic rugs as far as the eye can see… Just imagine it. That idyllic summery setting is coming to Battersea this August bank holiday and we are packing our baskets and browsing for floaty linen dresses in anticipation.

Battersea is going into concert this summer and has got three days of musical treats to celebrate the last of the long weekends of summer. From Saturday 26th until Monday 28th August you’ll hear ‘the best in classical, West End musicals, soul and jazz music’. All you need to do is pack a picnic, bring something to sit on and a good time attitude and you’ll be ready to go. If you’d rather let someone else do the cooking, there will be on site catering and bars too, so don’t worry if you run out either.

Check out the line up below.

Saturday 26th, 4.30pm-10.15pm

A Night at the Musicals

Starting in a suitably dramatic way, the London Philharmonic Orchestra will be showcasing some of the very best musical numbers from the West End classics. From Oklahoma to Grease and all the showstoppers between, you’ll be singing along in no time.

Sunday 27th, 4.30pm-10.15pm

Proms in the Park

Sunday is a classy affair. The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, conducted by Pete Harrison, will be playing breathtaking numbers from the classics; if Elgar, Puccini and Vivaldi is your vibe then this will be the night for you. And it’s not just the 60 piece orchestra that will take your breath away. The evening will be finishing with an equally spectacular firework display.

Double MOBO-winning saxophonist YolanDa Brown and The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars will be warming up the crowd before headliner Gabrielle takes to the stage. This already legendary line up will be joined with even more performers that are yet to be announced. Feet tapping and finger clicking encouraged.
