Arts + Entertainment


Imagine some of the best names in music performing in one place. All without the mud, questionable
bathroom facilities, leaky tents, and traffic usually associated with a typical open-air concert.

This summer, for one weekend only on 15th and 16th June, Down Hall Hotel & Spa brings you two world class
summer concerts – LIVE AT DOWN HALL. Set within 110 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland on the
Hertfordshire/Essex border, Down Hall’s stunning grounds will be transformed into the ultimate concert space
and, with luxurious bedrooms, room service on tap, indulgent ESPA treatments, fantastic British food and
drink, LIVE AT DOWN HALL is a class act.

Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra will be the first to perform on the LIVE AT DOWN HALL
stage on Saturday 15th June with special guests including famed English drummer Gilson Lavis and boogie
woogie queens Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall. The following evening sees Brit award-winning
singer/songwriter James Morrison, best-known for his songs You Give Me Something and Broken Strings.
On site, discover a bar dispensing the likes of Champagne Devaux, Aviation Gin and Pimm’s, alongside ice
cold beers on tap. Sustenance comes in the form of street food with an upmarket touch courtesy of Down
Hall’s kitchen brigade with artisan pizzas, a US-style barbecue and Mexican burritos. Add to this, afternoon
teas, served in the hotel’s beautiful grounds, offering a quintessentially British experience and the culinary bar
has certainly been raised. Look out for sweet treats from Down Hall’s local partners with Gü Puds from Bishop’s
Stortford and the award-winning Rossi Ice Cream, created by the father of music legend, Francis Rossi. There
to keep concert-goers feeling and looking good is the Eden Spa Therapy Tent, providing express treatments
throughout the weekend.
