Need some inspiration for 6th October? The very first ‘Promenade Concert’ was held on this day in 1895. We call them ‘The Proms’ now, and hold them during August and September instead, but you can still mark the occasion by going to a classical concert or having a guided tour of the Royal Albert Hall.
