Spitfire is due to display.
The Battle Proms Concerts have been running since 1997 and attract 40,000 visitors every year.
This longest running 'picnic proms' series features a 2-hour orchestral programme within the unique atmosphere of stately homes in Lincolnshire, Warwickshire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire and Herefordshire.
Although there is less flying than, for example, the Shuttleworth Collection's evening music airshows at Old Warden, the additional entertainment is spectactular, including canon fire, Napoleonic Cavalry Display, evening gun salute and firework finale.
