Ragley Hall Battle Prom 2012

 

We had our first outing at this event which was a one day event held at Ragley Hall, Worcestershire, on the 18th August. This event takes place in the grounds of the house with an orchestra playing military music from the Napoleonic period. The music is enhanced by the cannons, infantry fire and fireworks during the 1812 Overture and Wellingtons Victory March.
