This summer, Tatton Park is preparing to host a series of socially distanced events at the first ever Tatton Park Pop Up Festival.

Among the highlights are family days out including The Princess Tea Party, Milkshake Live!, Jurassic Earth and Brainiac Live; DJ nights including Judge Jules Live, Ibiza Symphonic and a Centreforce Radio takeover; live music and shows from the Brand New Heavies, Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show supported by the Real Thing; and tribute nights with world-famous acts including direct from London’s West End, ABBA MANIA.

There’ll also be experience shows including The Greatest Show, Kidchella Festival, The Family Show and Kids Pop; and Sunday sessions with new and emerging artists and themed entertainment.

The event will close with a finale from Brutus Gold’s Love Train on August Bank Holiday Sunday.

Fronted by disco legend Brutus Gold, The Love Train has gained a reputation internationally for its interactive, vibrant, and utterly unique disco show that has become renowned for beaming its audiences back to the nightclubs of the 1970s. 

Each event can accommodate up to 1,000 ticket holders, who will each enjoy a socially distanced pitch accommodating up to six people, complete with seating and set against the stunning scenery of Tatton Park lakeside.

Gastro-style food and premium brand drinks can be purchased on site from soon-to-be-announced vendors, while ticket holders can also order luxury hampers to be delivered to their pitches. 

Each event includes a number of VIP tickets, which will include premium outdoor furniture, table service and a private VIP washroom, along with a private bar operated by the famous Menagerie restaurant and bar.

Saving Grace Events is the company behind the Tatton Park Pop Up Festival.

“This summer we’re bringing music, fun and excitement to Tatton Park with a 10-week long pop up festival that really does deliver something for everyone,” said founder Rebecca Hartley.

“Tatton is a stunning location for live events and we have created a line-up that spans family events, live music, DJs, Sunday Sessions and much more.

“With Tatton Mere providing a gorgeous lakeside backdrop, the festival will create days and nights that everyone can remember forever.”

Each event will be laid out to allow for social distancing.

The Tatton Park Pop Up Festival team has developed multiple contingency plans allowing for numerous variations on COVID-19 restrictions, so would-be revellers can rest assured that the events will go ahead in compliance with whatever restrictions are in place.

“It’s been a long, hard year brothers n sisters, but don’t worry, your disco hero, Brutus Gold is back with the entire gang this summer,” said Brutus Gold.

“So pull on your boogie shoes, get down and dance!”

The Tatton Park Festival will begin on Friday 25th June and run until bank holiday Sunday 29th August 2021, with events happening every weekend as well as on some weekdays during the school holidays. The full line-up can be found at tattonparkpopupfestival.co.uk.
