The Proms, short for Promenade Concert, had existed in London's pleasure gardens since the mid 18th century but were brought
to indoor venues for the first time in 1895. Robert Newman, manager of the newly built Queens Hall, worked closely with composer
Henry Wood to realise their shared ambition of educating the public in classical music through a combination of cheap Proms tickets, a less formal promenade arrangement and popular
music choices. Through the promenades Wood managed to ease audiences into more contemporary pieces making the proms a platform
for new classical talent.
