West End and TV star to perform as legendary rock and roll icon in summer concert
West End and TV star Zoe Birkett will perform as Tina Turner in an upcoming Sounds in the Grounds concert.
This time, live music will fill the grounds of Ripley Castle near Harrogate on Friday 20 to Sunday 22 August.
Zoe Birkett will star as Tina Turner in One Night of Tina on Saturday 21 August in a rock and rollercoaster ride through four decades of Tina’s greatest hits.
Zoe first shot to fame on ITV’s original Pop Idol alongside eventual winner Will Young and runner-up Gareth Gates.
She has since performed in numerous West End shows such as The Bodyguard, Thriller Live and Rock of Ages, as well as an appearance on Celebrity Big Brother.
And the fun doesn’t stop there. The weekend of live music will kick off with The Definitive Rat Pack on Friday 20 August, where audiences can relive the golden era of swing.
Then to conclude will be Patrick Myers as Freddie Mercury in Killer Queen on Sunday 22 August, which will recreate the iconic songs and showmanship of one of the greatest ever rock bands.
Also, returning by popular demand, York’s very own The New York Brass Band will get the party going each evening as the support act.
Audiences will be able to sit back and enjoy the three evenings of live music from their own designated picnic patch, for two, four or six people – just remember to bring something to sit on!
Tickets are equivalent to £29.50 per person plus booking fees for a standard picnic patch.
The gates to Ripley Castle will open at 5.00pm on Friday and Saturday, and at 3.30pm on Sunday.
Visitors will have time to enjoy a picnic before The New York Brass Band starts at 6.30pm (5.00pm on Sunday), with the main act at 8.00pm (6.30pm on Sunday).
There will also be food and drink available to purchase on site, with pizzas from The Dough Disciples and a range of Yorkshire beverages from the Yorkshire Bus Bar.
