We’re thrilled to be presenting our first ever BBC Prom here in Nottingham with the BBC Concert Orchestra performing a varied and vibrant programme inspired by local history and legends and featuring Nottingham artists.

Nottingham’s legendary hero, Robin Hood, provides the concert’s opener, with the overture to Doreen Carwithen’s colourful score to the 1954 movie, The Men of Sherwood Forest and Erich Korngold’s Oscar-winning music to The Adventures of Robin Hood, starring Errol Flynn.

Nottingham’s industrial past is the focus of Lace Machine Music, a new Proms Commission from Dr Elizabeth Kelly, Associate Professor in Music Composition at the University of Nottingham, whilst Nottingham pianist, Clare Hammond, provides the virtuoso thrills in Sergei Rachmaninov’s perennially popular Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

Completing the line-up is Jean Sibelius’s atmospheric and purposeful Third Symphony, which marked a decisive shift in the composer’s style towards a more concentrated soundworld.
