Summer is fast approaching and what better way to kick back and relax than with live music – outside!
‘Sounds in the Grounds’ returns to Scampston Hall near Malton once again for three nights of socially-distanced picnic concerts, on Friday 11 June to Sunday 13 June.
Audiences can come together and enjoy live music from ‘internationally renowned’ bands from their own designated picnic patch.
The concerts will be in full compliance with Covid-19 safety guidelines.
Relive the golden era of swing with The Definitive Rat Pack on Friday, on Saturday spend One Night of Tina through four decades of the legendary Tina Turner’s greatest hits, and last but not least Killer Queen will be recreating iconic songs on Sunday.
Also returning by popular demand are York’s very own The New York Brass Band who will be supporting each act every night.
Gates will open at 4:30pm on Friday and Saturday, and at 3:30pm on Sunday. The New York Brass Band starts at 6.00pm (5.00pm on Sunday), with the main act at 7.30pm (6.30pm on Sunday).
Organiser James Cundall says “I’m delighted that after the success of Sounds in the Grounds last summer, we are back! These picnic concerts are a great opportunity to get together and enjoy a fun night of live music in a stunning setting in a socially distanced way.”
There will also be pizzas available from The Dough Disciples, and the Yorkshire Bus Bar will be parking up to offer a range of Yorkshire beverages.
‘Sounds in the Grounds’ will also be at York Racecourse later this month.
Tickets are equivalent to £29.50 per person, and the socially-distanced picnic patches are available for two, four or six people. Visitors should bring their own chairs.
