JAMES BLUNT will perform a very special outdoor show in the beautiful grounds of Audley End stately home in Saffron Walden, Essex on Friday, 13th August 2021. Joining him for this unique evening will be the legendary CRAIG CHARLES FUNK & SOUL SHOW and the amazing HACKNEY COLLIERY BAND. Discounted EARLY-BIRD TICKETS are available for those who are quick enough!

Since emerging with 2005’s Biggest Selling UK Album ‘Back to Bedlam’, bolstered by the incredible success of the single ‘You’re Beautiful’ which went on to become No.1 in several countries worldwide including the UK and USA, James Blunt has become one of Britain’s most loved solo artists.

With five more albums under his belt including his most recent, last year’s ‘Once Upon A Mind’ - which saw him return to the classic singer-songwriter style of classic songs that touch both the heart and the head - Blunt is as popular as ever.

Having worked with the likes of Ed Sheeran an selling over 20 million albums worldwide, his success has also seen him receive multiple Grammy nominations and two BRIT Awards.

Alongside being one of our most loved actors (Red Dwarf and Coronation Street), Craig Charles has also cemented himself as one of the UK’s most beloved Funk & Soul DJ’s. With his iconic BBC Radio 6 Music primetime Saturday evening show he delivers the classic sounds of the 60’s and 70’s as well as introducing audiences to the freshest artists in the genre.

Craig has captivated crowds throughout the UK, having performed his legendary DJ set at numerous festivals such as Love Box, Park Life, Festival no 6, Wychwood Festival, Common People, Mostly Jazz Funk and Soul festival to name but a few. In 2016 Craig played to over 10,000 people at the world famous Arcadia and Shangri-La stage in Glastonbury.

Following the release of Hackney Colliery Band’s eponymous debut album in 2011, the East London collective have blown their way into the public consciousness with their genre-bending combination of brass, reeds, percussion and electronics, firmly establishing themselves as one of the most exciting live bands in the UK.

From their 45 minute long performance at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics and sets at the MOBO, Brit and Mercury Awards, to live sessions on BBC Two, BBC Radio 2, Jazz FM, the group are recognised as one of the most exciting live acts in the country.
