The first entrance takes you up to the Stately home, the concert takes place in the cottage at the back of the house in the courtyard which is converted into a Rural County Cottage.

Come early and take a walk around the lovely gardens or the lake and make sure you leave room for the lovely home backed scones at the interval and the freshly brewed tea.

The concert is set inside a traditional Irish cottage and will feature a performance by the singers, musicians and dancers from Atlantic Rhythm and Mayo Manchester. After the interval the audience are invited to participate so do not forget your dancing shoes or musical instrument.
