Grab a picnic and a glass of something cold and sparkling: the glorious Heritage Live Concert Series is back! Organised by Giles Cooper Entertainment, the events run 12 to 14 July and bring A-list acts to the stunning setting of Audley End House.
While you relax and soak up the splendour of this Jacobean mansion and its beautiful gardens, you’ll be treated to live music from legendary acts, including The Human League. Makers of immortal hits like Don’t You Want Me and Love Action (I Believe in Love), they’re topping the bill on Friday the 12th, supported by fellow synth-pop heroes ABC, plus Belinda Carlisle. The next night is headlined by The Hives, known for their sharp suits and indie anthems, with The Fratellis also taking to the stage to perform classics like Chelsea Dagger.
Rounding things off in style on 14 July is an unbeatable line-up of disco icons headed up by The Jacksons. Celebrating their 50th anniversary, marked by the release of their debut single, I Want You Back, The Jacksons (consisting of founding members Jermaine, Tito, Jackie and Marlon) continue to wow audiences across the world with their live performances of a back catalogue that includes songs like ABC, I’ll Be There and Blame It on the Boogie. They’re joined by the Grammy Award-winning Kool & the Gang, plus Boney M, featuring original singer and founding member, Maizie Williams.
