The Festival will showcase some of the UK's finest jazz and blues acts in the most stunning, magnificent and serene of surroundings, Burton Agnes Hall, creating a beautiful and intimate festival experience for all. These include one of the great British jazz voices of all time, Elaine Delmar, performing Gershwin and Porter, and the legendary PP Arnold - one of the iconic faces of London's swinging '60s who is still performing more than four decades later!
A varied line up of funk, traditional jazz, blues, dreamy vocals and everything in between will grace the courtyards and stages. Festival goers will be mesmerized with its diverse and premium bill, which brings together jazz greats and international legends alongside cutting edge and new artists.
A campsite in the field adjacent to the Hall offers welcome hot showers and panoramic views of the Yorkshire Wolds for those wishing to pitch a tent for a night or the whole weekend.
With its safe and easygoing vibe, there is plenty on offer for children including a Children's Corner with play area, 15 acres of magical gardens to explore including a walled garden with maze, jungle garden, and giant games, and a woodland walk with sculpted forest creatures to find.
All these elements help to create a one-of-a-kind, family-friendly experience that will see Burton Agnes Hall once again welcome some of the finest Jazz and Blues artists from across the UK and beyond. www.burtonagnes.com
