Classical music lovers can enjoy a picnic at a live outdoor concert in Birmingham city centre tonight in celebration of the first night of the Proms.
The Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra will perform classics such as Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance Marches, Parry's Jerusalem and Coates' Sleepy Lagoon and Dambusters March in Chamberlain Square.
After the concert, the first night of the BBC Proms will be broadcast live from London's Royal Albert Hall on a giant screen. Benches and tables will be available.
Geraldine McCullagh, who is helping organise the event, said: "We're expecting the sun to shine during this event, so it should be a great treat for families to come and enjoy some free entertainment and listen to some of their favourite classical pieces of music."
The live concert starts at 6.30pm and the Proms will be broadcast from 7pm until just after 9.30pm.
