Happy 10th birthday!! The Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival, which began in 2007, is celebrating its tenth anniversary over the weekend of Friday 30th June to Sunday 3rd July 2017.
SUPER EARLY BIRD TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE UNTIL 1st SEPTEMBER 2016. Click the 'Tickets & Prices' link at the side of this page.
Surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds, the Festival is set in the award winning grounds and Great Hall of this Elizabethan stately home. 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. Twenty five bands 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 and delivered by brewer and jazz fan Tom Mellor, who then picks up his guitar to play in the Hall.
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
