Everything you need to know about Tatton Park Pop Up Festival
3 years ago
A 10-week outdoor festival of live music and entertainment has launched in Tatton Park bringing a summer-long line-up of family events, comedy, West End tribute shows, bands and DJs.
Tatton Park Pop Up Festival is here with a full programme of 52 performances and more than 100 hours of live music.
Every event is socially-distanced so you get your own private area – complete with furniture – to sit back and enjoy or take a break in between dancing! You get all the benefits of the festival atmosphere but with the added bonus of being in your own square, so it’s like having a private booth in a bar but without any extra cost.
Dates then go right through every Friday and Saturday to August Bank Holiday weekend and a storming glitterball spectacular Brutus Gold’s Love Train finale on Saturday August 29.
So, with so much to choose from whether you’re looking for a day out with the family or a night of partying with mates, here are 10 reasons why you should book Tatton Park Pop Up Festival …
It’s got an incredible location
Venues don’t get much more gorgeous than Tatton Park for a festival – the events are all set against a backdrop of 2,000 acres of parkland and Tatton’s beautiful lake. Once you’re inside the park, you’re free to wander around before the show or afterwards if you’re going in the daytime. Parking, which is right next to the festival site so easily accessible, can be booked online at the same time as tickets.
The line-up’s got something for everyone
The festival programme has been designed to be inclusive and family-friendly so there’s something for all tastes and ages. In the daytime there are kids shows like Milkshake Live, Jurassic Earth and Kidchella which is a kids take on the famous Coachella festival. Adults can take their pick from comedy – there’s Jason Manford’s Comedy Club – West End tribute shows like Abbamania, Killer Queen and One Night of Tina, and acts like Brand New Heavies and Collabro performing Musicals by the Lake.
There are DJs too
It seems like ages since anyone was allowed inside a club, but with this festival you get live sets from DJs including Judge Jules, Jeremy Healy, DJ Spoony and Craig Charles’ Funk & Soul featuring The Real Thing. Plus there’s Keeping it 90s with Rozalla, N-Trance and Phats and Small, and classical club tracks from Symphonic Ibiza.
You get your own private square to enjoy it all from
There’s no need to get crammed in a crowd because with Tatton Pop Up Festival you get your own private area. Most are for four, five or six people, although there are some which are just in twos for couples or parents with one child who prefer not to share.
Every square comes fully furnished – and with cover
Forget having to lug your own camping chair, every pitch – standard and VIP – comes with its own seating so you get branded deckchairs and tables in the standard squares and lounge furniture in VIP. Each area also has its own 2.5metre parasol to help keep you dry if the weather’s not great.
You can upgrade your booking for a luxury VIP experience
If you fancy pushing the boat out a bit after months of empty diaries, you can upgrade to one of the VIP packages and get the option of priority entrance, champagne upon arrival, prime seating, luxury furniture, private VIP bar and toilets, and table service. Menagerie in Manchester is taking over the VIP bar, bringing their signature cocktails and iconic bathtub and backdrop for photo opportunities.
There’s great food to order from your phone
Don’t bring your own – order from a full in-house menu of gourmet street food instead. Think posh burgers and loaded fries, which you can order from your square and have delivered straight to you.
On Sundays there’s even a roast
Sunday Sessions will feature chilled-out jazz, gospel and soul music from emerging artists and you’ll be able to order a Sunday roast or gastro pub food to eat while you’re listening.
And drinks, don’t forget the drinks …
No need to queue five-deep at the bar, because you can have these delivered to you too. The festival has an in-house bar with drinks partners including Laurent Perrier, Bacardi, Grey Goose, Bombay Sapphire and Peroni. You can get cocktail favourites like espresso martinis, pornstar martinis, and mojitos too.
It’s Covid safe
Private areas are all socially-distanced, it’s contactless check-in, there’s hand sanitising stations in each zone and everything is fully sanitised between shows.
