BBC Proms By The Numbers
"The Proms, which run to 57 consecutive nights, are regularly billed as the world's biggest music festival. Last year's average attendance was 93 per cent of the Albert Hall's 6,000-seat capacity - and that's just a fraction of the total number listening. In the UK alone, live transmissions on BBC Radio 3 are heard by 2m people a week, and in 2012 more than 15m watched on television. BBC broadcasts reach a huge international audience, with more than 45 countries transmitting the Proms on radio and up to 20 tuning into the Last Night on television." Financial Times 07/06/13
