If you’re unable to make it to the Royal Albert Hall for this year’s BBC Proms, you can catch up on what you’ve missed by tuning into BBC Radio 3 or visiting the Proms website and BBC Sounds, which will have broadcasts of every single Prom.


What's more, BBC television and BBC iPlayer will broadcast 24 programmes from the Proms season, including the First Night and Last Night of the Proms, and these will all be available to watch on iPlayer for 12 months.

It's likely that these Proms will all be broadcast on BBC Four, with a handful on BBC Two. The exact schedule and broadcast details of the Proms are yet to be announced, but we will update this page with any further information when it becomes available.
