August events: Soak up sights and sounds at Castle Howard Proms Spectacular
Malton, North Yorkshire
Be wowed by one of the best events in August, as fireworks light up the Howardian Hills at the Castle Howard Proms Spectacular.
On the closely trimmed lawns of the stately home, with views over Castle Howard's Great Lake, the setting for this classical music event is glorious.
Expect songs from the musicals and popular operatic classics, accompanied by a Spitfire flyover, lasers and a fantastic firework finale, drawing oohs and aahs from the crowd.
The whole experience is quintissentially English, which fits perfectly with the rolling hills, stone villages and cosy country inns. Explore this lovely corner of England by staying the night, and then going back to Castle Howard to see the glorious summer colours in the thousand acres of gardens and grounds.
