ARDINGLY & ENGLEFIELD HOUSE NEW DATES 2022


Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement on the final unlocking of Covid rules in England, we have announced the rescheduling of our outdoor concerts at the South of England Showground in Ardingly, West Sussex and Englefield House, in Theale, West Berkshire.

Despite the Englefield House shows taking place just after the newly proposed 19th July unlocking date, the set-up and build for these events would have to have begun from 12th July for concerts of this size, with no guarantee that they would be able to go ahead. As such, Heritage Live has taken the terribly difficult and heart-breaking decision to reschedule the shows to 2022.

The outdoor evening concerts at Ardingly Showground, which were originally due to take place on 16th-18th July 2021, will now take place on the following dates...

Friday 15th July 2022 - RAG’N’BONE MAN – plus special guest RAYE

Saturday 16th July 2022 - BOY GEORGE & CULTURE CLUB – plus special guests BANANARAMA, LULU, KIM WILDE & DJ Fat Tony

Sunday 17th July 2022 - LAST NIGHT OF THE HERITAGE PROMS with RUSSELL WATSON and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, featuring David Arnold, Mike Moran, Christina Johnston and Mark Kingswood, plus very special guests, the NHS Choir

The outdoor evening concerts at Englefield Estate, which were originally due to take place on 23rd-25th July 2021, will now take place on the following dates...

Friday 22nd July 2022 - SUPERGRASS – plus special guests FEEDER & SPORTS TEAM

Saturday 23rd July 2022 - BOY GEORGE & CULTURE CLUB – plus special guests - LULU, GABRIELLE, KIM WILDE & DJ Fat Tony

Sunday 24th July 2022 - LAST NIGHT OF THE HERITAGE PROMS with RUSSELL WATSON and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, featuring David Arnold, Mike Moran, Christina Johnston and Mark Kingswood, plus very special guests, the NHS Choir

All original tickets remain valid for the new dates. Heritage Live x

IMELDA MAY added to VAN MORRISON show at AUDLEY END!


Imelda May and the Joanna Eden Band have joined the line-up for Van Morrison’s outdoor show at the English Heritage site Audley End House & Gardens in Saffron Walden, Essex, this summer, which also features very special guests The Waterboys.

Imelda May is a multi-award-winning Irish singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Following on from a breakout performance on Later… with Jools Holland, Imelda has since staged her own sold-out tours across the UK, Ireland, Europe, North America and Australia, performing for royalty, presidents and at major events around the world.

She’s collaborated with legendary artists such as Lou Reed, Bono, Elvis Costello, Jeff Beck, Van Morrison, Robert Plant and has, most recently, sung several songs on Hollywood actor Jeff Goldblum’s debut jazz album.

Imelda May’s recently released album ‘11 Past The Hour’ features collaborators including Noel Gallagher, Ronnie Wood and Miles Kane. The album debuted this week at No.6 in the UK Album Chart, giving Imelda her fourth UK Top 10 album, and also hit the top spot on the Irish Album Chart, making her the only Irish female soloist to achieve four No.1 albums in the Irish charts this century.

Described by Time Out as ‘The UK’s answer to Diana Krall and Norah Jones’, Joanna Eden has performed her jazz influenced original music all over the world and supported world-class artists including Jamie Cullum, the Buena Vista Social Club, Ronan Keating, and the Blockheads.

The Joanna Eden Band feature British jazz luminaries and combine the energy and rhythmic virtuosity of Latin music with the intimacy and honesty of Joanna’s acclaimed originals which MOJO Magazine described as having ‘melody, mystery and bite!’.

The show at Audley End House & Gardens in Saffron Walden, the opulent Jacobean mansion house in the gorgeous Essex countryside, will be headlined by Van Morrison and feature very special guests The Waterboys.

RE-SCHEDULED SHOWS


In response to ongoing government advice, we’re very sad to announce that Heritage Live's 2020 concerts at Kenwood House on London's Hampstead Heath and at Audley End House in Saffron Walden will no longer be taking place this summer.

We’ve managed to reschedule many shows to the equivalent dates in 2021 (all tickets purchased for 2020 will remain valid for the rescheduled dates in 2021), but some have regrettably had to be cancelled.
