World renowned Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (BSO) is returning to Powderham Castle, near Exeter, this summer for a classical music extravaganza with spectacular fireworks.

The Last Night of the BSO Proms is being on Sunday, July 30.

Thousands of fans are expected to descend on the venue – home of the Earl and Countess of Devon – for the flag-waving night to remember.

It is a first return for the BSO to Powderham after a five-year absence, and comes in response to strong popular demand from the local community in and around Powderham, for which the Last Night of the BSO Proms is a favourite.

Charlie Courtenay, The Earl of Devon, said: “Powderham’s deer park is an ideal venue for classical music and we look forward to welcoming back the BSO for this wonderful alfresco occasion.”

The programme will consist of many of the traditional Proms pieces performed at the BBC Proms season at the Royal Albert Hall in London – plus a few surprises.

This proms event is ideal for families, friends and corporate entertaining, as well as for those celebrating an anniversary, birthday or special occasion.

Gates open at 5.30pm, the concert starts at 7.30pm and the fireworks finale is at 10pm

Tickets are: £27.50 adults, £16.50 children six to 16 (under-sixes free), £75 family (two adults, two children), £27.50 disabled (carer goes free). For more details or to book, see www.promsatthecastle.co.uk. For hospitality packages, group bookings or queries, call 01202 255161.
