The Last Night of the Proms, at the Royal Albert Hall in London, is one of the most popular classical music concerts in the world, watched and listened to by an audience of many millions around the globe. It is the final celebration of the Proms, a eight-week summer season of daily orchestral classical music concerts and other events held annually.

The concert series was started in 1895, and each season includes an average of seventy individual concert presentations in the Royal Albert Hall plus chamber Concerts in Cadogen Hall, Proms in the Park that take place in various United Kingdom locations, and children’s events.

The Last Night of the Proms is the biggest of all the concerts and is the highlght of the season. The dress code is relaxed to allow concertgoers to wear patriotic clothing such as a Union Jack Waistcoat, suit, Union Jack jacket, patriotic t-shirts, and bowler hats. Large Union Jack hand flags are waved with patriotic pride by concertgoers during the performances. 

The Last Night Of The Proms celebrations take place across the UK
