If a fun family day out is what you’re looking for then Ragley Hall, Park & Gardens really does have something for everyone!

Children of all ages will be entertained for hours within our Adventure Wood and 3D maze and with boating on Ragley Lake, an 'Artist in Residence' and a Woodland Walk; it’s easy to see why Ragley is one of Warwickshire’s most popular family days out.

If gardens are your passion then you just have to explore Ragley Gardens! The 10 hectares of ‘Capability’ Brown gardens surrounding Ragley Hall are diverse and display a spectacular array of snowdrops in the winter, tulips and daffodils in the spring and a Rose Garden and Prairie Garden throughout the summer months.

Also look out for the Sculpture Collection which further enhance the Ragley landscape. It includes sculptures of the Hertford children and even one of a family dog!

Battle Proms Picnic Concert

  • 12 August 2017 4-10pm

Celebrate 20 years of Britain’s premier classical open-air concert series with music, Spitfire, cannons, cavalry & fireworks!

Pack up the hampers and champers and join the crowd at the annual Battle Proms Picnic Concert, returning to the stunning grounds overlooking the lake at Ragley Hall on Saturday 12 August 2017.

Approaching its 7th year at Ragley, the Battle Proms is now a firmly established favourite in the local calendar. The series itself is celebrating 20 years since the first Battle Proms was staged, and there’s a reason it continues to grow year on year.

Thousands of concert-goers will be treated to an extraordinary afternoon and evening of entertainment at this ‘Party in the Park’ with a difference.

The full 2 hour orchestral concert from the 60 piece New English Concert Orchestra, led by Douglas Coombes MBE and compered by much-loved BBC presenter Pam Rhodes, will include a host of well-known classical pieces and conclude with a ‘last night of the proms’ sing-along with favourites such as Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and more.

The musical programme will be augmented by toe-tapping warm-up act The Jazz Spivs, thrilling Napoleonic cavalry displays, a meticulously choreographed aerial display from a WWII Spitfire, live firing cannons and, of course, spectacular fireworks. The Battle Proms is still believed to be the only opportunity in the world to see their signature piece - Beethoven’s ‘Battle Symphony’ - performed as he composed it: with 193 live Napoleonic cannon providing a thunderous percussion!

Gates open 4.00pm, entertainments from approx. 5.45pm, finish approx. 10.00pm
