This wonderful and extremely family friendly boutique festival focuses on its more unique festival experience and features local traditions and products whilst exposing the boutique festival goer to some very interesting acts and entertainment activities that would not normally be on the radar of larger festivals all making for a fabulous family day out with a difference.

Burton Agnes Jazz Festival

This year's acts include Chantel McGregor, British Blues Award's guitarist of the year AND female vocalist of the year 2013; the legendary jump, jive, swing, rhythm and blues of King Biscuit and the Pleasure Boys; sultry New-Orleans-Bourbon-bar vocals and boogie piano of Tipitina; gospel-tinged festival band favourites Polly and the Billets Doux, who are known for their flawless and energy-filled live performances, the genre-defying quartet and who boast a genius blend of Folk, Pop, Rock N' Roll, Soul, Country, Blues and even Gospel. And if that isn't varied enough, they also have master-saxophonist Alan Barnes, teaming up with Horace Silver experts The Give a Little Love Orchestra for 'Watching the Detectives': music that celebrates Sherlock Holmes and Columbo!

Friday night's party vibe will be provided by Birmingham based Brothers Groove, and regular favourites Octopus, Rob Law and the Lemon Monkeys will return during the weekend. Hall owner Simon Cunliffe-Lister will be playing out the festival on Sunday with Ben Beattie's After Midnight Band (a little earlier than midnight, at 5pm!).

This year's Late Night Sessions in the beer tent, in conjunction with the Beverley Arts Trust, feature Latin guitar duo Farino; Rebecca Robyns and Dan Edwards; singer-songwriter Lucy Marshall; and R&B legends The Alligators. Intimate daytime performances will also take place inside the Great Hall and in the courtyard with Matadaor, The Kingstown Blues Band and 13 year old Jason King will also return.

Unique to 2014, the festival is proud to be an official fringe event of Le Tour de France's visit to Yorkshire. They will salute the arrival of the Tour de France's 'Le Grand Depart' with their very own 'Le Mini Depart'. Also taking place at the Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival, will be time-trialled clown bike races on 'Le Mini Course'; a celebration of French cuisine on the food lawn; and the hothouse gypsy-jazz music of France's most famous jazz guitarist, Django Reinhardt, performed on stage by Djangologie.

As always, you'll be able to enjoy delicious home-cooked local food, award-winning local ales, locally roasted Fairtrade coffees, a nostalgic tea tent, Burton Agnes Hall’s fabulous 1960s ice cream van, comfortable and memorably scenic camping with hot showers and children's entertainment.

The child in all of us is taken care of by balloon artistry and face painting, and highlights of Burton Agnes' grounds include a maze, giant games, jungle garden and woodland walk with forest creatures to find.

There is festival camping in the beautiful surroundings of the adjacent Park Field, with fabulous hot showers laid on too.

Built between 1598 and 1610 by Sir Henry Griffith, Burton Agnes Hall is an Elizabethan stately home that has stayed within the Cunliffe-Lister family for more than four hundred years. Fifteen generations have filled the Hall with treasures, from magnificent carvings commissioned when the Hall was built to French impressionist paintings, contemporary furniture, tapestries and other modern artwork in recent years.
http://www.burtonagnes.com/The_Hall/Art_and_Architecture.html

Simon Jenkins, author of England's Thousand Best Houses , described Burton Agnes Hall as ‘the perfect English house’ and as one of the twenty best English houses alongside Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace and Chatsworth House.

Since the Norman Manor House was built by Roger de Stuteville in 1173 the property has never changed hands by sale, though it has passed from family to family on occasions when the male line has ended.

The beautiful proportions of the Hall and its adherence to the principles of Tudor Renaissance architecture (Commoditie, Firmness and Delight) confirm that a professional hand drew up the designs. The architect was in fact Robert Smithson - Master Mason to Queen Elizabeth I and builder of such other famous houses as Longleat, Wollaton and Hardwick. It is the only Smithson house where the plan still exists, in the RIBA collection.

In his definitive book on the Smithsons, Mark Girouard called Burton Agnes a 'spendid and glittering composition'.

The charm of the house is that it is a loved and lived in home and is fortunate in suffering so little from alterations or additions in its history. In 1977 Mr. Marcus Wickham-Boynton handed the Hall and gardens to a charitable trust formed for its protection and future upkeep. Under this arrangement it was hoped that future generations of the Boynton family would continue to live in it and it would therefore remain a 'lived-in' family home.

In 1989 on Marcus Wickham-Boynton's death the estate passed to his young cousin Simon Cunliffe-Lister and, until he came of age, was under the guardianship of his mother, Susan Cunliffe-Lister.

In 2005 Simon formally took responsibility for Burton Agnes Hall and with his wife Olivia and their four children Islay, Joss, Otis and Inigo the Cunliffe-Lister family continue the tradition of maintaining and caring for this well-loved family home.

Family Fun

Burton Agnes Hall and Gardens is a great day out for all the family. Whether you're interested in the Hall, with its magnificent architecture and impressive collection of art, the beautiful award winning gardens, or the woodland sculpture walk and giant games, you'll find something for everyone. The Children’s Corner is a great space for families to relax, enjoy picnics and run around and also the Woodland Sculpture Walk, where amongst the trees, children can look for giant caterpillars, squirrels and spiders and other creepy crawlies!

Children's guidebooks are available from the visitor desk along with the Burton Agnes guide book and our friendly guides are on hand to answer questions about the history and contents of the Hall. Hip seats are available from the visitor desk for young children and under 5's are free.

The Maze

The maze, situated in the top northeast corner of the walled garden, was planted in the spring of 1990 and seemed an obvious choice of interest for the walled garden due to its Elizabethan origins. Over 700 yew bushes were used to build the maze and despite yew being regarded as a slow plant to develop it actually grew at a rate of one foot per year. Once mature the rate of growth slowed considerably, which is a great advantage when maintaining the maze, particularly in removing clippings from the centre!

Visitors to the garden, young and old enjoy getting lost in the maze and to make ours more interesting we have included a riddle for visitors to solve. There are a number of small gardens on the way into the centre which provide the clues and the riddle is a well known saying.

Jungle Garden

The idea behind the creation of the jungle garden came from the sense of fun and freedom that is often felt in being able to just 'get lost' in a garden. The maze already offered a very structured way of 'getting lost', so as a contrast the jungle garden gives the opportunity for visitors to 'get lost' in a completely free and unstructured way.

By creating a jungle garden this also offered an opportunity to grow large leaved and exotic looking plants that do not fit easily into herbaceous and mixed borders. Included in the planting are a variety of bamboos, large-leaved perennials, shrubs and grasses as well as large herbs and vegetables such as globe artichokes, asparagus, rhubarb, angelica, fennel and lovage.

As well as the large variety of jungle plants, we felt the jungle garden required water and what better way than our very own mini jungle elephant. 'Agnes' as she is known, was made by a talented lead worker and fountain maker, David Marston, from nearby Nafferton, and can be found happily squirting water through out the summer months at Burton Agnes.

The Gardens

The beautiful, award winning gardens of Burton Agnes Hall offer something for everyone, from the walled garden containing over four thousand different plant species, herbaceous borders, a jungle garden and national collection of campanulas, to the woodland walk with creepy crawlies to spot, as well as the maze and giant games for children and adults alike.

Walled Garden

The walled garden, created in 1990 by Mrs Susan Cunliffe-Lister when the family took over the Hall in 1989, was built to contain the original Elizabethan gardens over four hundred years ago. At the beginning of the twentieth century it was a typical Victorian walled garden containing vegetables, fruit and flowers for the house. However, by the 1970s this had become uneconomical and the garden was grassed over, leaving only the herbaceous borders and a vegetable plot.

Mrs Cunliffe-Lister was keen to bring the walled garden back to its former glory but rather than recreating a replica of the original Elizabethan garden the concept behind the new design was to combine the two Elizabethan ages - using ideas of the first Elizabethans and incorporating them with new ones, as well as the wide selection of plants and materials available today. Built up over the past twenty years the walled garden today is a unique wonderland containing over 4,000 different plants. Included in the wide variety of planting are rose beds, vegetable gardens, herbaceous borders, fruit beds, a jungle garden and a national collection of campanulas.
