    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.

    Supergrass will now take place on Friday 22nd July 2022. All original tickets remain valid.

     

    SUPERGRASS, FEEDER + SPORTS TEAM |West Berkshire Villagers Supergrass will headline an all star line-up  Englefield House, as part of the Heritage Live Concert Series for 2021.

    Pre-sale tickets will be available from 9am, Wednesday 5th May and go on general sale from 9am on Friday 7th May.

    Supergrass said:

    “We hope our friends in Berkshire and nearby Oxfordshire can come along to this amazing outdoor setting for our show. A big welcome to the mighty Feeder and Sports Team… We can’t wait for it!”

    Supergrass – Gaz Coombes, Mick Quinn, Danny Goffey and Rob Coombes – formed in Oxford in 1993, released their No.1 debut album I Should Coco in 1995, going on to achieve several million record sales including 6 top 10 albums. Indie single, ‘Caught By The Fuzz’ and breakthrough single ‘Alright,’ captured the energy and spirit of the 1990s, leading the band to huge global success. They subsequently released five studio albums and a top 5 Best of, Supergrass is 10 in 2004. Other top 20 singles include: ‘Lenny’, ‘Going Out’, ‘Richard lll’, ‘Sun Hits The Sky’, ‘Pumping On Your Stereo’, ‘Moving’, and ‘Grace.’

    After a 10-year split, the band re-united in 2019 for the Glastonbury Pilton Party. They then embarked on a tour to mark the 25th anniversary of I Should Coco, to support the band’s career-spanning box set, The Strange Ones: 1994-2008, which was released last year.

    Since forming in 1994, Welsh band Feeder have released ten studio albums, including Echo Park, Comfort of Sound and Renegades, and are responsible for rock anthems including ‘Just the Way I’m Feeling’, ‘Tumble and Fall’, ‘Just a Day’, ‘Feeling a Moment’ and ‘Buck Rogers’.

    Their ninth album All Bright Electric came out in 2016 and the band released their most recent album Tallulah in 2019, which peaked at No.3 in the UK charts, including singles ‘Fear of Flying’, ‘Youth’, ‘Daily Habit’ and ‘Blue Sky Blue.’

    Sports Team released their acclaimed debut album, Deep Down Happy, in 2020, entering the UK album chart at No.2. After earning a reputation for crazy live shows the 6-piece band have amassed a dedicated tribal following. Strong anthemic tracks like ‘Kutchner’, and ‘Here It Comes Again’ buzz with confidence and power.

    Boy George & Culture Club have announced a series of exclusive UK outdoor shows as part of the Heritage Live Concert Series for 2022.

    The multi-million selling group will perform at some of the country’s most stunning venues, beginning with a very special concert at Kenwood House on Hampstead Heath in London on Saturday 26th June, where Boy George, who lives locally to Kenwood, will celebrate his 60th birthday which falls the week prior.

    Boy George & Culture Club will also perform at Englefield House in West Berkshire on Saturday 24th July.

    The group are fronted by singer/songwriter Boy George, universally loved as one of music’s most iconic artists who performs alongside original Culture Club members Roy Hay and Mikey Craig.

    As the first multi-racial band with an openly gay front man, Culture Club set many records and established themselves as icons of British musical history and popular culture.

    Since establishing herself as one of the best-selling female singers of the 1960s with her trademark song ‘Shout’, Lulu has cultivated an incredible career in British popular culture.

    Alongside some unparalleled milestones, Lulu made her film debut in 1967 opposite Sidney Poitier in ‘To Sir, with Love’, and performed the title track which was a No.1 hit in the US. Lulu also was one of four joint winners of the 1968 Eurovision Song Contest with the song ‘Boom Bang-a-Bang’, and late found success with her own self-titled BBC TV show; as well as having a hit with the title theme to the 1974 Bond classic ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’.

    With her debut single ‘Kids In America’ in 1981, Kim Wilde established herself as one of the biggest stars of the 1980’s, including holding the record for being the most-charted British female solo act of the decade. Alongside selling over 10 million albums and 20 million singles, she is also a renowned presenter on both television and radio.

    This year, Gabrielle celebrates over 20 years of her incredible album ‘Rise’. With hit singles such as the title track, as well as ‘Out of Reach’, ‘Sunshine’, and ‘Should I Stay’, the album has gone on to achieve 4x platinum sales and was in the Top 10 album charts three summers in a row from 1999-2001.

    DJ Fat Tony is the original superstar DJ. A mainstay of the London party scene having performed at some of the most legendary clubs of all time, and birthday parties for the likes of Madonna, Prince and Michael Jackson, Tony lit up Instagram with his DJ sets throughout lockdown providing a source of entertainment for many.

    One of Britain’s most loved singers, Russell Watson, will take to the stage for a series of outdoor concerts this summer, set to the backdrop of some of the country’s most stunning and picturesque outdoor venues, as part of the Heritage Live Concert Series, and is coming to Englefield House on Sunday 25th July 2021.

    The Last Night of The Heritage Proms with Russell Watson shows will feature the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, as well as composer arranger and producer Mike Moran, coloratura soprano Christina Johnston, and very special guests The NHS Choir.

    Watson will perform an array of classics, from much loved standards such as Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Swing Low, through to affirming and uplifting showstoppers including You Raise Me Up and Bring Him Home, alongside a very special Phantom Of The Opera medley.

    £1 from every ticket sold for the events will be donated towards the NHS Charities Together, the collective representing, supporting and championing the work of the NHS’ official charities.

    Russell Watson is one of the world’s most popular classical singers, once described by the New York Times as a performer ‘who sings like Pavarotti and entertains the audience like Frank Sinatra’.

    His debut album The Voice saw him hold the top spot in the charts for an unprecedented 52 weeks – whilst at the same time topping the charts in the USA, making him the first British male artiste to attain a simultaneous transatlantic number one. The Voice subsequently became the first and only album by a UK classical artiste to achieve 1,000,000 sales.

    Russell’s incredible career has seen him perform for some of the world’s leading figures – from Presidents to Popes, and Emperors to Queens, including HM The Queen, the late Pope John Paul II, former US Presidents Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Barack Obama; and the Emperor of Japan.

    With his collaborative albums with Aled Jones, as well as last year’s compilation album ‘20’, Russell continues to achieve remarkable successes in the charts, as well as selling out venues all over the UK and indeed the world.

    Very special guests for the summer show will be The NHS Choir. The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Voices Choir were first seen on Gareth Malone’s BBC2 show, Sing While You Work, where they were narrowly beaten in the final. Since then they have gone from strength-to-strength.

    The choir rode an overwhelming wave of support from the public and the media as they landed the much coveted Christmas No.1. spot in the official UK chart in 2015 with their single A Bridge Over You, alongside kind words from Justin Bieber who they beat in the chart race.

    Following this success, the choir recorded their debut album Something Inside So Strong, as well as performing at prestigious events and venues including the FA Cup Final, the Royal Albert Hall, and the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.

    Last year the choir recorded a new version of Justin Bieber’s song Holy with Bieber himself, recorded at Abbey Road Studios, and performed alongside Michael Ball and Captain Sir Tom Moore for a recording of You’ll Never Walk Alone, with profits going towards the NHS Charities Together
