The Proms stands for promenade concerts and goes back to the last century when people couldn’t afford to attend concerts. Robert Newman had a vision and wanted to create a series of music events for ordinary people and wanted to call it promenade concerts. The BBC got involved in 1927 and became a major sponsor of the event. The BBC Proms concerts moved to the Royal Albert Hall after the war.
