Military themed spectacle due at Blenheim Palace this Saturday – delayed due to COVID-19
This Saturday 4th July, music lovers who would have been attending Battle Proms at Blenheim Palace are being encouraged to hold a ‘Battle Proms picnic at home’ to support the exceptionally popular concert series.
Due to social distancing rules, the physical event has been postponed until the 3rd July 2021 but the organisers JSL Productions have created the ‘Battle Proms picnic at home’ so that supporters can download bunting, enjoy the rousing music and take part in several activities in aid of the Battle Proms’ official charity, SSAFA the Armed Forces charity.
Included in the virtual festivities will be an online version of the very popular Battle Proms raffle, with spectacular prizes on offer, and a photography competition. The Battle Proms team are determined to raise as much money for SSAFA as possible, who raised a staggering £15,260 at the Blenheim Palace concert last year.
James Grant, Head of Corporate Fundraising & Events at SSAFA said “While we are very sad not to be enjoying the wonderful music and entertainment at Blenheim Place this year, we would like to thank the Battle Proms team for their efforts to reimagine the concerts and I hope that many people enjoy a picnic at home. We look forward to seeing photographs and are extremely grateful to those who take part”
