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. Civilised camping with hot showers in the adjacent park field, children's entertainers, local ale and food inspired The Independent to describe the Festival as 'Possibly the most enjoyable jazz concert I've ever attended'.
Could this be the most breathtaking place to spend a weekend, soaking up the UK's hottest jazz and blues acts?
As always, bands will overflow from the outdoor main stage into the Great Hall, our shops and cafe courtyard, and the late night sessions in our bar tent. 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. Field and Forage will be serving 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 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.
"The whole experience was brilliant...the combination of antiquity and youthful influence from Simon and his family, protecting tradition and heritage yet creating a relaxed and happy atmosphere. We will be back again." Festivalgoers Tom and Hildy Young
'Just wanted to pass on our congratulations for a truly excellent day...we had been to the Jazz Festival before and really enjoyed ourselves soaking up the very special atmosphere. We will be back and will recommend to our friends and family.' festival goer Susan Silver
