The Proms were founded in 2012. Initially planned for just one year, the experiment was so successful that a programme of over forty concerts have been staged over the last six years.
These have covered every form of musical performance from staged opera to big band, piano recitals to large scale choral events, early music to big band, Irish folk to small classical chamber performances. In recent years each Prom series has included a Youth Prom and an outdoor Pocket Prom in the Vicarage gardens.
With the retirement of the first Programme Coordinator, a new style Islington Proms is being launched, led by Yoon Chung and Adam Dickson. This will take the form of a week-long festival of music and other events, to be held 9-17th June 2018.
