THE very nationalistic Proms Spectacular at Castle Howard enjoyed very British weather at the weekend.

Raincoats, blankets and even gloves, were donned by revellers who turned out in their hundreds for the rousing annual concert in the grounds of the stately home.

But spirits remained undampened at the picnic style event which included musical entertainment and fireworks, and featured the renowned English National Orchestra with Jae Alexander at the helm, star soloists Wynne Evans and Janet Mooney.

The event concluded with a finale of flag-waving favourites from the Last Night of the Proms with a fireworks display.

Hmm, but NO Spitfire to be seen. What happened to that?
