Next Article New cases now brings new panic. UK now top of league and perhaps holidays will be doomed as well Welcome return of the great British promenade concerts 2020 was a sad year for music lovers who normally throng to the BBC Promenade Concerts which are usually held in one of the country’s most iconic buildings, the Royal Albert Hall. As we all know, covid-19 put paid to all of that and only 14 concerts were presented to an empty Royal Albert Hall. But it has now been announced that this year the proms will be moving back towards a state of normality. In the light of the lifting of covid restrictions, the BBC will now be welcoming full capacity audiences for some 51 concerts between now and September. The normal number is circa 90 concerts so it is still a somewhat slimmed down event but better than last year. There will also be late tickets available for concerts for as little as £6 – an absolute bargain for world class music. To get in it will be necessary to show proof of covid vaccinations or a negative covid test. Patrons will also be encouraged to wear masks. Good news for music lovers! All the concerts will be available on the radio and a number of them will be televised and for “prom zealots”, Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia will be sung in full.
