August 09, 2012, 10:36 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The world-famous Last Night of the Proms will be shown at special outdoor events all over the UK, as Proms in the Park returns this September 8th.
Living up to the popular perception of the closing night as classical music for the masses, the celebrations are to be screened in Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff and, most famously, Hyde Park. Each screening of the action from the Royal Albert Hall will be built around a live concert, featuring appearances from major artists, both classical and pop.
London's Proms in the Park is offering more than five hours of music, hosted by Sir Terry Wogan and featuring pintsized pop star Kylie Minogue. Other acts include Alfie Boe, Il Divo, the Royal Choral Society and the BBC Orchestra.
The show starts at 5.15pm. Tickets cost £35 and are available via LondonTown.com. The website is also offering major discounts on London hotels in the area, many of them within easy walking distance of Hyde Park.
The Thistle Marble Arch Hotel is among the London hotels on offer, with a 91% discount available for early bookings on double rooms. The reduction brings the cost of a night's stay in this very smart West London hotel down to just £90. The hotel is around ten minutes walk from Hyde Park, at the end of Oxford Street.
