Music goes al fresco
Forget Glastonbury or Glyndebourne this summer – the hot date for music in the sunshine is just around the corner.
The Great Hebden Bridge Garden Party on July 14 features live music from Latin to folk, all in the huge south-facing garden at Mayroyd Hall.
Orgatronics will be playing their own brand of ambient chill-out Latin; then there’s acoustic folk from The Harriwatts Band. Popular classics are performed by Jonathan Fisher (piano), Nikolas Gjylaci (violin) and Heather Broadbent (cello).
The event, which runs from 3pm to 7pm, also features guitar duo Acoustic Blue and world jazz from Take 2, with Peadar Long on sax and Dave Nelson on piano.
“It’s the perfect venue for a relaxed summer afternoon of music,” says Hebden Bridge Arts Festival organiser Enid Stephenson. “Bring a picnic and some champagne and don’t forget the suncream!”
Hebden Bridge Arts Festival runs from June 30 to July 15 with a full programme of music, theatre, street entertainment, comedy and more.
Postal bookings opened on Monday, May 14 and programmes are available at libraries, tourist information centres other public venues, plus countless cafes, shops and pubs. The box office opens on June 16.
