Audley End House and Gardens is an early 17th-century country house outside Saffron Walden, and is renowned as being one of the finest examples of Jacobean architecture in England. It is distinguished by the splendour of its unique architectural features and varied collections.

Annually, the grounds provide an elegant backdrop as host to the spectacular Audley End open air Summer Concert series, which is spread over three amazing weekends.

The Audley End concerts started on Saturday 26th July with a big bang courtesy of the “Modfather” himself, the great Paul Weller. Weller shot to prominence as the lead singer and song writer of the Jam, the compelling and original English punk rock/new wave/mod revival band. Following his departure from the Jam he evolved a more soulful style with the Style Council. Since 1989 he has established himself as a solo artist to much critical acclaim.

On Saturday the 2nd August it was the turn of 80’s retro to delight the audience with a vengeance, with diverse and unforgettable contributions from Tony Hadley, Midge Ure, Heaven 17, T’Pau, Katrina, John Parr and Johnny Hates Jazz!

Sunday the 3rd of August saw the last Audley End summer concert. This saw a radical change of musical genre to classical style. The memorable tone of the evening was set with a spectacular aerial display from the iconic World War II fighter plane, the Grace Spitfire.

The performers of the evening were Laura Wright, Camilla Kerslake, Gardar Thor Cortes, and Amy Dickson. The evening ended in the stunning way in which it started, with a fantastic firework display.

Gallowglass Security is very proud to have taken part in this event again in providing event security; it is always a popular event amongst our security planners, team leaders and guards. This is on account of the superb organisation, the friendliness of all, and the breathtaking setting and music.
