In an exciting development, a brand-new open-air concert series is set to grace the picturesque grounds of Arley Hall in Cheshire later this month.

Billed as Live at Arley, the event is scheduled for the weekend of 18-19 May, promising audiences stunning live performances, artisan food and drink, local showcases, and awe-inspiring fireworks on both days.

The Chicago Blues Brothers, who will deliver their full theatre show from London's West End, will kickstart the weekend.

Their spectacular live music will engage audiences in a high-energy, unforgettable musical journey, showcasing classic Blues Brothers hits.

Chester and District Standard:

The concert series shifts gear to classical music on Sunday, featuring a stellar Proms concert with the UK’s best-selling classical artist, and Salford trill Russell Watson.

The king of classical music will be accompanied by his band and supported by emerging soprano Millie Royle.

Mr Watson's specially curated set promises to enthral audiences with Proms classics such as Jerusalem and Puccini's aria Nessun Dorma.

Mr Watson said: "I’m delighted to be part of the Live at Arley concert series this May; it’s such a stunning location and what an incredible backdrop!"

He added his excitement about performing at this beautiful venue from where the popular Netflix drama, Fool Me Once, was filmed.

Tickets now available on and Arley Hall’s Office by telephone on 01565 777 353.

Option for dining in the stately home and exclusive VIP access is also on offer.

The new event is sponsored by the technology firm Yotta Laboratories.
