If you don`t get tickets for the Royal Albert Hall go for the Hyde Park link up Concert, tickets usually around £25. It did rain last year but it was still great fun.
Hotels are already expensive so book quickly, or book a hostel, a friends couch, sneak five people into one hotel room, sleep in Euston station, party all night but go to the Proms.
Tickets are on sale for the Lion Witch and the Wardrobe in Kensington Gardens. These are very expensive with prices of £82 for the best seats.
Tip : My advice is buy the cheapest seats as I watched Peter Pan there and the circular ceiling of the tent the show is held in is used for projections. The visual effects of the show are the main part and easily seen from all seats and the stage itself is raised.
Kensington Gardens are enchanting themselves with their fountains and Princess Diana memorial. The show I am sure will be spectacular just don`t fall for the heavy price tag. Make yourself a fabulous picnic and go and enjoy it the whole family will be impressed.
