Time: All day
Location: Burton Agnes Hall
This popular annual jazz and blues festival will take place from 1st – 3rd July at Burton Agnes Hall, an Elizabethan stately home surrounded by the Yorkshire Wolds in Driffield. First launched in 2007 the event is a chance to hear live performances from leading UK jazz and blues performers in a beautiful setting (the 2015 event included a tribute to Billie Holiday by British Jazz Award winner Val Wiseman).
There is a main outdoor stage and you can also enjoy live music in the venue’s impressive Great Hall and Courtyard. Tickets are available either for the whole weekend or for individual days and evenings and, as well as the music, you’ll find a bar tent (where some late night sessions take place), tea tent (for the more civilised), vintage ice cream van, cake stalls and much more.
