Sounds In the Grounds at Scampston Hall



Sounds in the Grounds brings four nights of great live music to the grounds of one of North Yorkshire's most beautiful stately homes – Scampston Hall near Malton.

Audiences can come together and enjoy a line-up of best-loved and internationally renowned bands from their designated picnic patch (available for 2, 4 or 6 people) which will be socially distanced from others but close enough to share the fun. (All concerts conform to guidance from Public Health England regarding Covid-19).

In fully-staged productions with LED screens, the Sounds in the Grounds programme features Beyond the Barricade (with special guest star Lockie Chapman, former lead singer of The Overtones) performing showstoppers from the world's greatest musicals (28 Aug); ABBA MANIA with flares, platforms and all your favourite hits from the Swedish Supergroup (29 Aug); The Bootleg Beatles, the world's premier Beatles band and a Glastonbury favourite (30 Aug); and A Country Night in Nashville, a celebration of country music with songs from its biggest stars both past and present (31 Aug).

The support act to every concert will be another Glastonbury sensation - The New York Brass Band, performing a different repertoire every night, from jazz to 80s to current hits – guaranteed to get you on your feet for a night of superb live entertainment.

What is the seating arrangement? What is a picnic patch?
Patrons will be able to purchase their own designated picnic patch which will be socially distanced from others but close enough to share the fun.
The picnic patches will be defined by painted lines in our 1888-capacity grass arena within the grounds, with views of the Hall/Castle. They are available in three sizes:
for two people - 1.5m wide x 1.5m deep
for four people - 2.0m wide x 1.5m deep
for six people - 2.5m wide x 2.0m deep
They will be set out in alternating rows i.e. a row of patches for two people, followed by a row of patches for four people, followed by a row of patches for six people. This pattern is then repeated.
Patrons are required to bring their own chairs for the picnic patch.

What different ticket types are there?
Picnic patches are available for 2, 4 or 6 people and as a premium ticket or a standard ticket. Premium picnic patches are located in the first six rows of the arena. Customers with accessible requirements will be able to park their car as close as possible to the concert arena.

Is this a drive-in concert? Do we stay in our car?
No, this is not a drive-in. You will park in the field adjacent to the concert arena, and then bring your chairs into your designated and socially-distanced picnic patch to enjoy the concert in the open air.

What about food and drink?
You are able to bring your own food and drink including alcohol with you.
Food and drink will be available to purchase at both venues.
Alcohol will be sold on site and a Challenge 25 policy will be in operation.
Card and contactless phone payments only will be used on site.
Patrons will need to follow the one-way system around the arena to get from their picnic patch to the food and beverage facilities and back to their picnic patch.

Are children allowed and do they have to be accompanied?
Yes children aged three and over are allowed. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or above.
Customers who are accompanied by children are responsible for supervising them at all times and ensuring they follow social distancing guidelines.

Are dogs allowed?
Dogs are not allowed. Assistance dogs are permitted.

What if it rains?
The concerts will go ahead in all weathers, unless it is deemed too dangerous. Umbrellas will not be permitted as they impede the view of other patrons, so please dress according to the weather conditions.

All Covid-19 regulations and guidance in place – see website for details
