Tim Minchin lined up for BBC Proms date

The schedule for this year's BBC Proms has been announced, with musical comedian Tim Minchin set to be one of the highlights.

Those booking London hotels will be able to see the First Night of the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday July 15th, with the concert including Liszt's Piano Concerto No 2.

On Saturday July 23rd the Human Planet Prom will take place, with the BBC Concert Orchestra performing music taken from the ground-breaking natural history documentary Human Planet.

Tim Minchin will then take to the stage on Saturday August 13th in a mixture of classical music and comedy.

The Australian will present the evening and will be joined by Sue Perkins and Kit and the Widow.

As always, the showpiece event will be the Last Night of the Proms, which rounds off the season on Saturday September 10th.

It will be conducted by Edward Gardner, with pianist Lang Lang performing at both this event and Proms in the Park on the same day.

The Proms first started in August 1895, thanks to an idea by Queen's Hall hotel manager Robert Newman.
