It's a classic in its own right.
The Leeds Castle Classical Concert served up its quintissentially English helping of picnics, promenading and well known classical music last night, while the weather served up its own summertime treat.
Bathed in sunshine, the stunning setting attracted thousands who enjoyed their picnics, before getting ready to wave their flags as the music played.
With its wartime theme this year, The Patriot Girls performed a series of 40s tunes, including Pack Up Your Troubles, We’ll Meet Again and The White Cliffs of Dover and the Central Band of the Royal Air Force brought some traditional brass sounds.
The unique sound of the Spitfire flying overhead stopped everybody in their tracks, with thousands reaching for their phones to capture its acrobatics over the castle in the dusk.
Host Aled Jones returned for a second year, providing the crowd selfie of the night, with much of the chat with the audience also coming from Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conductor John Rigby.
Soloists Katie Bird from Bearsted and Anthony Flaum went down a storm again, with Anthony performing such treats as Nessun Dorma and Jerusalem, finishing each of his performances with a beaming smile as the crowd cheered.
One of the joys of the classical concert is its relaxed atmosphere, with children playing with beach balls and bubble machines, while parents enjoy the music and chat among the crowds, and the lovely mix of audience members of all ages and backgrounds.
The RPO provided us all with some beautiful sounds, including a personal favourite Claire de Lune, bringing the evening to a crescendo with Land of Hope and Glory and the 1812 Overture, topped off with some stunning fireworks and the spectacular firing of the field guns.
And when the audience thought they had had their firework fix, there was a second helping and some extra tunes.
Here's to our helping again next year.
