It’s sunny outside as I write these words, not always a given in a British summer. But certain institutions are obligatory in an English summer, Wimbledon tennis which starts next week, the Henley Regatta and the BBC Proms at the Albert Hall to name but three. (OK, another minor sporting institution is also holding it’s 4 yearly event over in Brazil!)
The Proms were started by Robert Newman in 1895, who hired the better known Henry Wood as principal conductor. The BBC took over the running of the Proms in 1927, the year after Robert Newman’s death. Sir Henry Wood continued to be associated with the proms until his death in 1944. They moved to their current home at the Albert Hall in 1941 (though war – the “Blitz” – the bombing of London – interrupted this temporarily).
This year’s Proms start on 18 July 2014 and run until the famous “Last Night” of the Proms on Saturday 13 September. As usual there is an eclectic list of concerts and you can find details and tickets here BBC Proms 2014
