BBC Proms in the Park: five things you won't want to miss

Matilda Egere-Cooper

All good things must come to an end, so after eight epic weeks of serious classy music, this year's BBC Proms will sadly bid us farewell on September 10 with the much-loved Proms in the Park finale. We've rounded up five things to look forward to at this weekend's gig in Hyde Park. 

A mighty headliner

They've pulled out the big guns this year in the shape of the veteran pop kings Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The Jersey boys are headlining, but not just that: they're performing with the Beeb's stupendous 75-piece concert orchestra.

A sweet selection of pop stars

The other pop acts this year include a recently reunited All Saints, rockers The Feeling and everyone's favourite meme – Rick Astley. 

A special tribute to a legend

The late Terry Wogan hosted the Proms every year from 1997 until 2015 so there will be a fitting tribute to the legend, who sadly passed away in January.

Tim Minchin and the cast of 'Matilda'

Undeniably a man of many talents, Tim Minchin will be on stage with a bunch of the cast from 'Matilda', the West End musical for which he wrote the music and lyrics.  

 The annual sing-along at the end

Every year, Proms in the Park joins forces with the Late Night Celebrations that happens later at the Royal Albert Hall. Via live screen link-up, they wrap up the night together with a massive singalong with plenty of flag-waving, shoulder hugging and good ol' fashioned camaraderie. 

BBC Proms in the Park is in Hyde Park, W2 4RU. September 10, from 3pm. £40.
