Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Jamie Cullum will be headlining the opening night of Larmer Tree Festival 2016 on Wednesday 13th July. With best known hits such as Wheels, These are the Days / Frontin’ and Get Your Way, the audience can expect a high energy set from Cullum performing live in the unique gardens setting for the Larmer Tree crowd.
When Cullum isn’t writing or performing he presents a weekly BBC Radio 2 show, as well as being involved with various creative projects, from On Mass, a collaboration of artists from around the world, to Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day, where Cullum worked with Ed Sheeran, Sir Paul McCartney and Alesha Dixon.
Day tickets for Wednesday 13th July are now on sale (£45 for adults). Tier 1 tickets, including for 5-days from the Wednesday opening night are available from www.larmertreefestival.co.uk/tickets. The first release of super-early bird tickets sold out in under an hour!
Wednesday night support comes in the form of none other than rising star English / Italian musicianJack Savoretti. After a tough start, Savoretti is now making a name for himself in the music world, selling out tours and writing critically-acclaimed albums. Influenced by everything from The Eagles, Motown and 60s Italian music, his music is full of rhythm, whether that be the Spanish-style guitar in Written In Scars or the folk-tinged Broken Glass.
Following the 25th anniversary of Larmer Tree Festival this year, 2016 will see the festival return to its five-day format with ticket options available across the five days. Winner of 2015 Small Festival of the Year at the National Outdoor Events Association (NOEA) awards and shortlisted for the Best Small Festival at the UK Festival Awards, Larmer Tree offers entertainment and activities for an audience of all ages.
Nestled in the heart of the stunning Cranborne Chase in beautiful Victorian pleasure gardens, Larmer Tree Festival offers a varied line-up of talented artists, from local bands, to emerging acts and established household names. Previous years have seen Paloma Faith, Tom Odell and Sir Tom Jones on the bill. Plus an impressive comedy line-up with previous acts including Russell Kane, Seann Walsh and Ed Byrne and literature, talks, workshops and theatre all taking place across the intimate garden setting.
