Blickling Open Air Concerts
Classic Ibiza and Great British Prom
We are delighted to have been chosen once again as the charity partner for two major concerts taking place at Blickling Hall in North Norfolk this August. They present a valuable opportunity for us to share information about our work locally with children and families as well as giving us different ways to raise funds to support this work.
Our accommodation centre, Forward Court in Aylsham, close to the Blickling venue, is home to seven 16-25 year olds. Some of the funds raised at the concerts will help refurbish and redecorate the communal lounge and contribute towards a computer that our residents will be able to use for their college work and job hunting.
On Friday 11th August Blickling Hall will play host to a live 32 piece Orchestra bringing you a selection of all time classic Ibiza tunes. The Urban Soul Orchestra conducted by Stephen Hussey return to perform classic Ibiza anthems under the stars, with DJ Goldierocks and vocalists Max Barnes-Davy, Jina Burrows and Roo Savill.
On Saturday 12th August The National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Anthony Inglis, make their debut at Blickling to celebrate British music from across the home nations. They will be joined by Classical Brit Award winning Welsh male vocal group Only Men Aloud, soprano Annette Wardell and traditional piped band for performances of Proms favourites, closing with a spectacular firework display.
- Camping pitches are available for those wishing to attend both evenings.
- There will be a variety of bars and food outlets on site or you are permitted to bring along your own food and drink.
- Free car parking
- Seating is not provided so if you'd prefer not to stand then do bring chairs or picnic rugs.
