About Burton Agness Jazz Festival
With bands over three days, and performances in the Elizabethan Hall and its beautiful grounds, the festival offers a diverse range of laid-back entertainment that inspired the Independent to write in 2009 that the Festival was ‘possibly the most enjoyable jazz concert I've ever attended’.
The large stage on the Main Lawn is where the Festival’s main acts perform. With rolling fields behind the stage and pristine woodland to the side, festivalgoers couldn’t ask for a more stunning setting.
'The whole experience was brilliant...due to the combination of antiquity and youthful influence from Simon and his family protecting tradition and heritage but creating a relaxed and happy atmosphere. We will be back again.' festival goers Tom and Hildy Young, 2012.
Families flock to the Burton Agnes Jazz and Blues Festival for the safe, easy-going vibe. Of particular interest to children, is the Children’s Corner with play area; 15 acres of magical gardens to explore including a walled garden with maze, jungle garden and giant games; and a woodland walk with forest creatures to find.

The history of Burton Agnes Jazz Festival
The Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival has a great success since it's launch in 2014. Surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds and set in the award winning grounds and Great Hall of this Elizabethan stately home the festival hosted the UK's hottest jazz and blues acts.
Line ups have included Chantel McGregor, British Blues Award's guitarist of the year AND female vocalist of the year 2013; the legendary jump, jive, swing, rythmn and blues of King Biscuit and the Pleasure Boys; New-Orleans-Bourbon-bar sultry vocals and boogie piano of Tipitina; festival band favourites, gospel tinged Polly and the Billets Doux. And if that wasn't varied enough, we had master-saxophonist Alan Barnes, teaming up with Horace Silver experts The Give a Little Love Orchestra for 'Watching the Detectives': music celebrating Sherlock Holmes and Columbo.
