BBC Prom

BBC Proms Smash Records

A record number of sell-out events for this year's Proms, including performances by Plácido Domingo in Verdi's Simon Boccanegra and Bryn Terfel in Wagner's The Mastersingers of Nuremberg, have seen the average attendance for concerts at the Albert Hall in London soar to 4,000 people.

Since the Proms opened on July 16, the hall has been, on average, 92 per cent full compared with 87 per cent in 2009.
