Warwick Castle is set to host two big concerts for different musical tastes featuring both British chart toppers and a prestigious orchestra over two nights this summer.
Sounds in the Grounds will include rock band The Kaiser Chiefs, rapper Professor Green and up-and-coming star Ella Eyre on Friday July 10 followed by The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and star of BBC’s The Voice Lucy O’Byrne on Saturday July 11
Eric Allen, the event’s executive producer said: “We’re really excited to be working in such an iconic British landmark, with fantastic talent.”
The Kasier Chiefs, lead by frontman and The Voice mentor Ricky Wilson, are proven crowd pleasers whose catalogue is brimming with sing-along anthems such as I predict a Riot, Oh My God and Ruby.
Professor Green came to the fore in 2011 with number 1 hit Read All About It and has released three albums and won a MOBO award.
Ella Eyre’s new single Together - out in May - promises to bring as much acclaim as her number 1 smash hit changing, the single she co-wrote with Sigma that brought her to widespread attention.
