Battle on at the Proms

We Battle on at the Proms . What a great event yet again.[wds id=”5″]

On Saturday the 18th July,  12 members and partners/friends of North Harrow Lodge Screenshot 2015-07-25 17.11.54attended the Battle Proms at Hatfield House for what has always been a great afternoon and evening of fun and fellowship. The Proms are held every year at 5 different venues over the course of the summer and because of our links with Hatfield House we have attended that one.

A few of us arrived early in the afternoon in the hope of missing the queues, but alas we were again wrong and joined the snaking masses to the entrance gate. As always the event is a massive sell out and more so this year as 2015 marks the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.19625563049_3f256c4602_o We came well prepared and took along a gazebo ( just in case it rained) ,plenty of picnic food and drink.

The weather Gods were again good to us and we were blessed with glorious weather. The evening was the usual success with copious quantities of food and wine consumed accompanied by excellent live orchestral music, simulated horseback cavalry displays and numerous fly pasts fly by a WW2 Spitfire, culminating in a fantastic firework display in time to music from the 1812  overture. Live cannon fire included….

Will we go again…. ?  Damn right we will…

Our next Social is for lunch on Sunday the 9th August at The Pavillion in Bushey, why not join us ?
