Latest news on the BBC Proms

15 July - 10 September 2022, London

Founded in 1895 by Sir Henry Wood, the BBC Proms is one of the largest classical music festivals in the world. Returning this summer for a full eight weeks of live concerts for audiences at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London and across the UK, as well as for those enjoying at home.

Featuring a programme of 84 concerts over 57 days with more than 3,000 musicians, this season will feature large-scale repertoire not heard at the festival since 2019, from Verdi’s Requiem on the First Night of the Proms to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony performed by the Chineke! Orchestra and Voices under Kevin John Edusei. The festival marks the centenary of the BBC with partnerships with Radio 1, CBeebies and the Natural History Unit, and a new commission featuring rare BBC archive footage from acclaimed cult band Public Service Broadcasting. 

The BBC Proms 2022 will showcase British ensembles, and international talent, world premieres and debut performances, undiscovered work and audience favourites and the summer culminates in a glorious celebration of the season in the form of the world-famous Last Night of the Proms.  

Every Prom is broadcast live on Radio 3 and available on Sounds, and 22 Proms will be broadcast on BBC television and available on BBC iPlayer.
