'Now this is a proper music festival.' The Times
‘Possibly the most enjoyable jazz concert I've ever attended.’ The Independent
'They say that good things come in small packages. This may be one of the summer's smallest gatherings, but it's also one of the most sophisticated...' Daily Mail
One of The Daily Telegraph's best fifteen festivals for the over 50s.
The fourteenth Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival, which began in 2007, takes place during the weekend of Friday 8th to Sunday 10th July 2022.
Could this be the most breathtaking place to spend a weekend, soaking up the UK's hottest jazz and blues acts? The festival is uniquely set in one of England’s finest homes: Burton Agnes Hall. A superb line up of bands provide a weekend of music from a main stage on a manicured lawn.
We provide music for all tastes, from those seeking an ambient accompaniment to a glass of wine in the magnificent grounds, to the jazz or blues aficionado hoping to get up close to star performers. Delicious baking from our stableyard cafe will be served in the tea tent; with locally roasted coffee brewed on our Gaggia coffee machine. There is a great range of food on the food lawn, with our vintage ice cream van, too. Award winning Wold Top beers will be on tap, brewed just a few miles away.
There is camping for tents, caravans and motor homes in the beautiful surroundings of the adjacent Park Field, with hot showers. The atmosphere is relaxed and family friendly. Our spacious grounds are open to all festival goers, including the walled garden, woodland, and woodland adventure playground.
