About

Live music from picturesque outdoor venues

Heritage Live concerts are staged at some of England’s most beautiful settings. These historic landmarks, stately homes and showgrounds showcase the very best of the country’s unique heritage and serve as stunning backdrops to their evening events.

The series continues to expand its portfolio of venues while still continuing to stage concerts at the English Heritage flagship sites of Kenwood House on London’s Hampstead Heath and Audley End House & Gardens in Essex. Among the artists who have performed as part of past Heritage Live series are The Jacksons, Van Morrison, Kris Kristofferson, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Jess Glynne and Nile Rodgers. 

The Heritage Live shows planned for summer 2020 were cancelled with some artists rescheduled to new dates in 2021.

On 10 May 2021, organisers announced a huge show entitled Live Music Is Back – London's Opening Night for 24 June 2021 headlined by Manchester's alt-pop heroes James alongside several other huge acts.
