Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival - Friday 12th July to Sunday 14th July 2019
The Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival, which began in 2007, takes place over the weekend of Friday 12th to Sunday 14th July 2019.
2018 performers included jazz's great Jo Harrop paying tribute to Peggy Lee, and Emmy award winner and three times Grammy nominee, Billy Branch, the "father of modern Chicago Blues". The 2019 line up will be announced late 2018. Music will come from the main stage in the grounds, the late night acts in the bar tent, inside the Great Hall, and from our cafe and shops courtyard.
WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
If you don't already know, then read on...
The festival is uniquely set in one of the UK's finest Elizabethan stately piles, our very own Burton Agnes Hall! Over twenty five bands provide a weekend of Jazz and Blues from our manicured lawns and inside our ornately carved Great Hall. There is civilised camping with hot showers in the adjacent park field, children's entertainers, local ale and food, late night acts in the bar tent and open mic performances in our shops and cafe courtyard.
Could this be the most breathtaking place to spend a weekend, soaking up the UK's hottest jazz and blues acts?
We provide music for all tastes, from those seeking an ambient accompaniment to a glass of wine in the majestic grounds; to the jazz or blues aficionado wanting to get up close to star performers. Delicious baking from our courtyard cafe will be served in the tea tent; with locally roasted coffee brewed on our Gaggia coffee machine. There is a fabulous range of locally sourced food on our food lawn; next door to our vintage ice cream van and its real dairy ice creams. Award winning Wold Top beers will be on tap, brewed just a few miles away.
There is camping for tents, caravans and motor homes in the beautiful surroundings of the adjacent Park Field, with hot showers laid on. The child in all of us is taken care of by balloon artistry and face painting, and highlights of Burton Agnes' grounds including a maze, giant games, jungle garden and woodland walk with forest creatures to find.
