Music & Live Events

Jazz in the Gardens

Enjoy a toe-tapping afternoon of jazz in Burghley's beautiful gardens

Spend a summer's afternoon in Burghley's Sculpture Garden listening to the swinging sounds of local Dixieland jazz group, the Stamford Stompers. Bring the whole family along, roll out a blanket and soak up the sublime atmosphere. With a soundtrack that will have everyone bopping along - even the littlest of dancers won't be able to resist joining in! Listen to the Stompers as they perform a wonderfully wide repertoire of classic New Orleans jazz with instruments that include a banjo, string bass, clarinet, trumpet, and guitar.

During your visit take in the beauty of the Gardens in full summer bloom or let the little ones run wild in Hide & Secrets Adventure Play. The Gardens and Adventure Play are open from 10am to 5pm with the Stamford Stompers performing from 12 noon to 4pm.

If you fancy a glass or two of fizz, a cooling soft drink or a barista coffee whilst you enjoy the music, our pop-up Garden Bar has you covered.

Open from 11am to 4pm next to the Jazz Stand in the Sculpture Garden.
