While the BBC Proms approach their climax, the kid-brother season in Britten’s Snape has scored a new record:

As Snape Proms approaches the last of its 31 concerts, Snape Maltings (est. 1982) has announced that this year’s season is the highest selling ever, with 23,000 tickets sold, the hall at 92% of capacity and 36% of bookers new to Snape. More than 3,000 of the tickets sold cost just £6.50.

    Does anyone know the ratio of classical to pop in the Snape Proms?
