Unique socially distanced music festival at Turvey House to launch in May

This May, Turvey House in Bedfordshire will host the first British festival to take place this year and you can be the first to grab tickets as they go on sale today (Friday).

The Estate Festival covers consecutive weekends from 27 May – 27 June and the 150 acres of parkland will form the backdrop to some of the most internationally recognised DJs and acts over five weeks.

Each weekend, from Thursday through to Sunday evening, will see exclusive music events featuring the likes of Horse Meat Disco, Patrick Topping, Pete Tong, Fat Tony, The Shapeshifters, Jonas Blue and Joel Corry. The full lineup can be found on their website.

Tickets range from £35 for ‘bronze’ entry to £150 per person for VVIP entry which includes dedicated table service and the best seats in the house.

The event is run by Robyn Isherwood who founded Gisburne Park Pop Up, one of the only festivals to take place during the pandemic last summer.

Taking its cue from last year’s event, the Estate Festival will feature hexagonal plots, each large enough for a social bubble of six, equipped with deckchairs, umbrellas and tables. Table service will mean that social distancing can be maintained.

Glamp it up

Glamping brand, The Pop-Up Hotel, will build a boutique glamping village featuring a swimming pool and luxury spa. Guests will have access to The Boathouse, an on-site restaurant offering locally sourced menus each day.

During the week, glamping breaks for families and groups are available featuring family-friendly events, plus access to The Boathouse, pool and spa.

Sustainability at its core

The Estate Festival will have no single-use plastic on site and they’ve teamed up with REBORN for sustainable seating, parasols and wristbands made from recycled plastic.

The Estate Festival are also ‘reverse recycling’, taking any excess plastics from the festival and recycling them onsite to make next year’s uniforms.

One of the festival’s partners, Brewdog, will be planting a tree for every crate of beer sold.
