When you can dance in front of a backdrop to match a line-up you know that you are in for a great weekend of entertainment. This is what you can expect from the second Upton House Music Festival.
Located on the north shore of Poole Harbour, Upton House is a grand Grade II listed Georgian mansion with 130-acres of parkland and shoreline, and it presents a stunning location to hold an impressive long weekend of music to suit everyone.
Access is good via the A35 and parking is ample – (if you are travelling from Poole or Bournemouth consider a United Taxi – one of the event’s partners, see P25).
The organisers, also supported by Wave 105, Poole Tourism and Enjoy itself, open the festival with the Classical Night, Sir Bryn Terfel CBE along with The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (BSO), soloist Lauren Fagan and special guests Escala on Thursday 8th June. VIP packages are available for those who would like some special treatment – on the other hand entry into the grounds on a regular ticket with a picnic and drinks on a blanket and a great view of the stage suits most!
Friday 9th is a trip back to the ‘80s with a pop extravaganza – 5,000 ticket holders will be welcomed
by Toyah Willcox performing many of her 14 top 40 hits. She will hand over the stage to 80’s icon Kim Wilde – an Enjoy favourite! From 1981 when Kids in America made number one around the world, Kim has stayed rocking on the 80’s tour and continues to get rave reviews.
Headlining with Billy Ocean this 80’s Extravaganza is a line-up to impress!
On Saturday 10th, 90’s multi-platinum selling Kenny Thomas will take the stage with his iconic 90’s hits from his debut album ‘Voices’ – we are delighted to welcome Kenny back on stage ahead of international superstar
Michael Bolton. Over
8,000 ticket holders
will enjoy a night of
entertainment within
the grounds of the
House, it’s the perfect
environment to sit and socialise, enjoy a picnic, a drink from the bar and to dance and get a great view from wherever your ticket allows.
The Upton House Music Festival is eagerly anticipated and we can’t wait to see who will make the line-up in 2018! 01202 255161
