Tomorrow may be the shortest day of the year...but that means from Wednesday the days will start getting longer again.
With that in mind, it’s probably apt that Summer Days – the UK’s newest boutique music and food festival – has unveiled Jools Holland and His Rhythm and Blues Orchestra as its second headliner.
The legendary pianist, band leader, singer, composer and presenter will top the bill on Friday July 8 with an unmissable set of boogie-woogie classics in what promises to be the party of the season.
Also announced for the Friday’s line-up is the incredible Caro Emerald, whose up-tempo blend of jazz and pop propelled her to number one in the UK and Dutch album charts with The Shocking Miss Emerald in 2013.
Wednesday, July 6’s line-up so far includes chart topping acts Simply Red, Gabrielle, The Christians and Roachford.
Summer Days is a three-day boutique music and food festival in the grounds of Clitheroe Castle – one of the North’s most beautiful and unique locations.
With two live stages featuring more than 30 artists, a locally sourced gourmet food village and a dedicated real ale area, there is much, much more still to be announced.
Summer Days Festival will announce a final headline act and a full supporting bill in the coming weeks as well as a full festival programme.
General access tickets for Friday July 8 are priced at £59.50 per day. A limited number of daily VIP tickets will be available at £149 each.
The festival is also running a special yuletide promotion – until 11pm on New Year’s Day in honour of Jools Holland’s legendary New Year’s Eve Hootenanny show, all tickets are available with a £5 discount.
