Belvoir Castle is hosting 'Concert at the Castle' at the end of August
With live music a rarity in these times of change, Belvoir Castle is putting on two outdoor, socially-distanced nights at the end of August entitled ‘Concert at the Castle’.
The weekend of top popular live acts has Queen tribute band Mercury – featuring Newark’s own Joseph Lee Jackson as ‘Freddie’ – headlining on Saturday, August 29, whilst the following night will see a Dolly Parton tribute act topping the bill.
Mercury, now celebrating their 20th anniversary, has established itself as one of the world’s most authentic tribute bands to Freddie Mercury and Queen.
This award-winning band, with its dynamic stage show, has been wowing audiences from the UK to Europe to Dubai.
The Dolly Parton Tribute Act features sequins galore, huge wigs, sparkly shoes and all your favourite Dolly Parton and country hits, capturing Dolly in her prime. Every lilt in her voice and stitch in her costumes is captured with painstaking attention to detail.
Support on the Saturday will be Roustabout, an Elvis tribute group, with Sunday’s opening act yet to be announced.
In order to adhere to Government guidelines, Belvoir Castle has introduced ‘picnic pitches’ in front of the stage.
These cater for two, four and six people and range from £45 to £145 per pitch.
Pitches cannot exceed six people and are spaced two metres apart to ensure social distancing.
Pitch and seating choice will be on a first come first served basis on the evening of the event.
All members of the group must arrive together.
Monitoring of social distancing will be carried out throughout the event, checking that each pitch does not exceed six people.
This event is subject to ongoing licence and Government guidelines and approvals.
Gates open from 5pm, with DJs starting from 6pm and bands from 7pm. The event will close at 11.30pm.
