Set within the grounds of Burton Agnes, a beautiful Elizabethan stately home in Yorkshire, The 2014 Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival promises to deliver a spectacular show yet again this year.
The Festival takes place on 27th – 29th June this year and is actually one of the fringe events of the Tour De France cultural festival. What better way to soak up the atmosphere in Yorkshire before the big race than settling down to watch some of the world’s best jazz & blues acts…

The Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival 2014 – Visitor Info
There is plenty more going on for everyone during the festival, with good food, children’s entertainment and award-winning local ale on tap throughout the weekend.
And to celebrate the Tour de France’s imminent arrival in Yorkshire there will be a fun ‘Le Mini Depart’ running alongside the festival. Expect clowns on bikes, toddler races and lots of French cuisine to try. Parfait!
With its winning mix of music, food, culture and sense of grandeur it’s a truly unique Yorkshire event and one you should experience at least once. You can book to go for just one day, one evening or indeed opt for camping there the whole weekend. A splendid way to spend a summer weekend in Yorkshire…
