As the BBC celebrates 80 years of running of the Proms, the British Library is hosting an exhibition of photographs, programmes and sound recordings from the annual event.
Among the exhibits is the programme for the very first Promenade Concert, conducted by Sir Henry Wood at the Queen's Hall, on 10th August 1895.
The Proms experienced financial problems throughout their early days and in 1927, the BBC came to the rescue. The BBC Symphony Orchestra was formed in 1930.
The Royal Albert Hall became the home of the Proms in 1941. This early photographic print forms part of the British Library's exhibition.
Enthusiastic concert-goers, or Prommers, used to queue outside the Royal Albert Hall, where drinks and sandwiches were served from a mobile trolley.
Performances continued in other venues, as this flyer for a concert at the Royal Surrey Zoological Gardens shows.
Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 is a favourite at the last night of the Proms.
In recent years, the Proms has included an open-air concert in London's Hyde Park. The British Library's Celebrating The Proms exhibition runs until 8 July.
