An 80s music treat and a classical delight are in store at Audley End this summer
Audley End, the Jacobean stately home just outside Saffron Walden, will host a trio of outdoor concerts in its stunning grounds this month. On Friday 13 July, this grand old country pile will be transported back to the 1980s for an evening of cheesy fun with Jason Donavon, Midge Ure, Five Star, Hot Chocolate, Altered Images, T’pau and Toyah. Then, the very next night, it’s the turn of Jess Glynne, the singer responsible for recent chart toppers Hold My Hand, Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself and My Love. She’s joined on the Saturday line-up by Ella Eyre, Louisa Johnson and Rudimental, who’ll perform a DJ set.
The music continues into Sunday with a visit from Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, aka Croation cellist duo 2CELLOS. In this dynamic show, the pair will play music from their latest album Score, which features melodies from classic and contemporary films and TV shows. They’ll be joined on the stage by pianist, music producer and Britain’s Got Talent winner Tokio Myers, and the show will conclude with a spectacular fireworks finale.
