Music to picnic by

The sounds of Jazz will get your toes tapping as you enjoy your picnic. Bring rugs and chairs and relax under the summer evening sunshine while Debbie Arther and her talented band of musicians play well-loved jazz tunes.  Wave your Union Jack flag and celebrate Victory with us as our second world war theme comes to an end this year.

Strictly come Upton

Watch dances by duo Hoppin’ Mad, who’ll show you the popular dancing from the 1940s. Then join in as they teach a few of their favourite steps to the crowds on the lawn in between the bands sets.
