Englefield Reschedules it’s Events for 2022

Englefield Reschedules it’s Events for 2022

Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement on the final unlocking of Covid rules in England, Heritage Live has announced the rescheduling of its outdoor concerts at Englefield House, in Theale, West Berkshire.

Despite the shows taking place just after the newly proposed 19th July unlocking date, the set up and build for the events would have to begin from 12th July for concerts of this size, with no guarantee that they would be able to go ahead. As such, Heritage Live have taken the terribly difficult and heart-breaking decision to reschedule for 2022 when it will be able to guarantee three wonderful nights for audiences at Englefield House.

Boy George & Culture Club will now take place on Saturday 23rd July 2022. All original tickets remain valid.
