Time is running out to buy tickets for two new classical concerts at Knebworth House at the cheapest available price.

A limited number of early bird tickets for Classic Ibiza and The Great British Prom at Knebworth House on Saturday, August 19 and Sunday, August 20 respectively are available for £30 until the end of February.

This will be the last opportunity to buy discounted tickets before these two very different classical concerts take place in the summer.

The price will rise to £35 after February 28, and then £38 on the night.

Situated in the delightful Knebworth Park grounds, these open-air picnic concerts promise to become not-to-be-missed dates in the Hertfordshire social calendar.

Lisa Ward, from Revival Productions, said: “We’re really excited to be bringing these two very different classical concerts to Knebworth.

“Although they cater for very different musical tastes, they are both family friendly and have been hugely successful at other venues.

“Tickets have been selling particularly well and we are anticipating two extremely memorable evenings in the delightful outdoor setting of Knebworth.”

For Classic Ibiza, the Urban Soul Orchestra (USO) and DJ Goldierocks will bring some of the biggest dance tracks from the last 20 years to life.

They will be accompanied on stage by vocalists Jina Burrows, Roo Savill and Maxamillion Barnes-Davy.

The Great British Prom will see the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Anthony Inglis, perform a veritable feast of iconic music from all corners of the UK.

They will be accompanied by renowned soprano Annette Wardell, Classical Brit Award-winning Welsh vocal group Only Men Aloud and a traditional Scottish pipe band.

USO will start Classic Ibiza with a fabulous ‘chill-out’ set featuring some of the most iconic Ibiza tracks including Nightmare on Wax’s Les Nuits, Massive Attack’s Teardrop, Groove Armada’s At the River and William Orbit’s version of Barber’s Adagio for Strings.

During the interval, Goldierocks will take over the stage and fill the Knebworth evening air with her creative mix of top Ibiza tunes.

As the sun goes down, the Urban Soul Orchestra returns with live vocals to bring their own flavour of Ibiza.

Tracks will take the audience on a White Island journey through hugely popular club anthems including Fat Boy Slim’s Right Here, Right Now, Faithless’ Insomnia, Chase and Status’ Blind Faith, Underworld’s Born Slippy and Swedish House Mafia’s Don’t You Worry Child.

The Great British Prom the following night will begin with the National Anthem followed by some rousing English classics including the Dambusters March, I Vow to Thee My Country and The Archers’ theme tune.

Music from the Emerald Isle will follow, with the orchestra playing Danny Boy, Irish Washerwoman Encore and Toss the Feather, a favourite in Irish dance music.

The orchestra will continue its journey to Wales from where the Classical Brit Award-winning Welsh vocal group Only Men Aloud will bring their breathtaking sound to the Knebworth audience.

They will be singing rugby favourite Bread of Heaven and other Welsh anthems.

Then it is time to head north for music from the Scottish Highlands, which will be performed by a traditional pipe band.

Scottish greats including Skye Boat Song, Scotland the Brave and Flower of Scotland will be performed before the pipe band walks up through the centre of the crowd to mark the end of a truly memorable first half.

The second half will see the National Symphony Orchestra return to the stage to perform all the Proms favourites including Rule Britannia, Land of Hope & Glory and Jerusalem.
