What Can I Expect

Delight in any of a number of picnic concerts at some of England's finest country house estates for a quintessentially British evening of music, entertainments and fireworks.

Gather in the historic grounds to soak up the festival atmosphere and enjoy an evening of sublime classical music. The soul-stirring programme of familiar classics is performed by a full orchestra and includes moving arias from an incredible soprano plus the spectacle of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture and Beethoven's ambitious 'Battle Symphony', which feature the firing of over 200 live cannons!

Before the orchestra take to the stage you'll enjoy toe-tapping vintage vocals from a live warm-up band as you unpack your picnic and crack open the bubbly. There's a colourful skill-at-arms display from the mounted cavalry showcasing a variety of historic regalia, followed by a stunning freefall display from the army's Red Devils parachute team. Get your flags ready and look to the sky for the arrival of the legendary ‘Grace' Spitfire in a breathtaking display performed as the orchestra play the evening's opening pieces. The evening closes with a traditional sing-along finale with Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and more as a dazzling firework display lights up the summer night sky.

Of course, these concerts just wouldn't be the same without some food and fizz, so why not upgrade your tickets to include the picnic basket option and you'll be furnished with a tasty spread, or the Prosecco option so you can enjoy a bottle of bubbly!

Picnic, music and friends all in a stunning setting, and with four venues to choose from, these concerts offer an excellent evening of summer entertainment to look forward to, with the option to make things extra special by sharing a delicious picnic or bubbly too!
