Thousands headed to Althorp Park on Saturday for the fifth annual Battle Proms concert.

This year’s programme of music, displays and pyrotechnics included the Blades Aerobatic Display Team, who are based at Sywell Aerodrome.

There was also a two-hour programme of classical music performed by the New English Concert Orchestra, plus all of the Last Night of the Proms favourites.

Audiences were also treated to an aerial display from a World War II Spitfire, more than 200 live cannons, mounted Napoleonic skill-at-arms displays and fireworks to music.

The Blades are a leading display team of former Red Arrows pilots renowned worldwide for flying precision aerobatics to the highest level.
