Pack your picnics for Paul Weller as the organisers of the Audley End concert have announced revellers will be allowed into the arena area with them.
Earlier in the year people were furious to discover there was a blanket ban on bringing food and drink to the concert – despite it being a tradition.
So with a glorious summer predicted everyone can now and sit in style and comfort with their own picnics, blankets and chairs, and enjoy the brilliant opening weekend concert - Paul Weller (July 26) followed by the next weekend with The Greatest 80s Party… Ever (August 2) and the Last Night of the Audley Proms (August 3) - both of which are picnic events too.
As in previous years concert goers can enjoy the beautiful grounds of Audley End House & Gardens before being allowed in the concert arena, and to supplement people’s own sumptuous picnics there will be a licensed bar and a variety of hot and cold food available for purchase at reasonable prices.
Portal Events, promoters of Audley End Summer Concerts, said: “We are delighted to announce that picnics can now be enjoyed at all our concerts this year. We listened to the feedback following tickets going on sale for Paul Weller in Concert and can now deliver the atmosphere people enjoy and have come to expect at Audley End.
“We apologise this was not resolved at the outset and we hope to welcome people back to what promises to be a memorable series of music events.”
