Party in The Shires!
Come on you crazy cats, let’s go wild in the countryside!
Yes indeedy, it’s the return of Countryfile Live from Thurs 2 – Sun 5 Aug, with Blenheim Palace once again the stunning venue after last year’s massively popular inaugural event. Muddy Stilettos loves a hay bale and check shirt as much as the next girl (particularly if the checked shirt is proffering a glass of cold bubbly stuff her way) and this year the event is bigger and bolder, not least because for there’s a special, separate Countryfile Live Summer Party to go to.
Party, you say? You read it right, sister. On Sat 4 Aug, from a very civilised 6pm – 9pm, country superduo The Shires will headline the event, supported by Newton Faulkner andFerris & Sylvester, named Top 10 New Country Artists To Watch in 2017 by Rolling Stone. The presenters will be there too – watch out for John Craven in the mosh pit, he’s a total sweat bucket – and given the emphasis on animal wellbeing and provenance the food stalls will no doubt be incredible.
Like the rest of CountryFile live, it’s a very family-friendly, relaxed event so dogs are welcome and so are picnics. If this sounds like it has your name written all over it, you can either book this event solo (it’s £38 for adults and under 16s go free), or you can get a £13 discount – lucky for some! – if you’re a BBC Countryfile live ticket holder.
