AN outdoor music event will take place at Scampston Hall this weekend.

The stately home will host Sounds in the Grounds over the August Bank Holiday, bringing together three days of live music from internationally-renowned bands.

The line-up includes Beyond the Barricade, ABBA MANIA, The Bootleg Beatles, A Country Night in Nashville and The New York Brass Band.

“Sounds in the Grounds offers the opportunity to get together and enjoy a fun night of live music in a stunning setting in a socially-distanced way,” said James Cundall, one of the organisers.

“Importantly it’s an opportunity for musicians to showcase their talent again after weeks of inactivity during lockdown.”

The concerts will take place at Scampston on August 28, 29 and 30 and have been designed to comply with all official guidance on coronavirus. Visitors will need to bring their own chairs, and can bring a picnic, though tables are not advised.

Gates will open at Scampston Hall at 4pm. Tickets start from £59, plus booking fees, for a standard patch for two people. For more information, go to
