Patrick Topping, Yousef and Solardo next to play Gisburne Park pop-up festival
The Lancashire country estate has been transformed by the UK's first socially-distanced summer festival
Date published: 9th Sep 2020
Once a picturesque, 18th century, grade-I listed country house set amongst a thousand acre estate in the Ribble Valley, a destination for soon-to-be-weds and home to roaming deer and parading peacock, Gisburne Park has undergone something of a transformation since the outbreak of Coronavirus (...haven’t we all?).
Now you’re just as likely to spot a Shapeshifter on the estate as you are a kingfisher, with Gisburne Park becoming the UK’s first socially-distanced summer festival in recent weeks.
Having already hosted the likes of Hot Since 82, Jonas Blue, Sam Divine and The Shapeshifters, the Lancashire open-air festival will welcome the North East’s finest, Patrick Topping, and Circus legend Yousef on Saturday 12th September, followed by raucous Manchester duo Solardo on Saturday 19th September.
Welcoming social bubbles of four to six people, each party is provided with its own hexagonal pitch, spaced 2.6 metres apart, with a bar-to-pitch food and drink service. The ten acre site also employs a one-way system to ensure social distancing at all times.
