The UK’s first purpose built ‘socially-distanced’ outdoor festival is set to take place at the idyllic Gisburne Park Estate with an eight week-programme of music, entertainment, food, drink and boutique glamping.
Set deep in the English countryside, the Gisburne Park Pop-Up will take place between July 11th and August 30th with the option of day tickets or weekend glamping and is expected to welcome 24,000 socially-conscientious guests over two months.
Some of the UK’s biggest names in dance music – including Jonas Blue, Shapeshifters and Sam Divine – have been announced to play the festival’s weekly ‘Party in the Park’ experience at Gisburne Park, alongside a programme of immersive movie nights, live entertainment and family-focussed events. Guests can sip on bottled cocktails created by some of the UK’s best bartenders from Lyaness, Three Sheets and Filthy XIII.
Dress up movie nights include Grease, Dirty Dancing and Moulin Rouge with family-friendly screenings of Dumbo, Frozen and Finding Nemo.
With all major UK festivals and events cancelled this summer, the Gisburne Park Pop-Up is reimagining the outdoor entertainment experience while observing the latest social distancing guidelines. Guests will book their own individual hexagonal pitches, each large enough for a social bubble of six and spaced 2.6m apart. Designated bar-to-pitch service brings delicious food and single serve drinks directly to the customer eliminating the need to queue; whilst a sophisticated one-way system ensures festival-goers can make their way around the 10-acre site with a minimum of 2m physical distance between other guests.
For guests wishing to stay an entire weekend, onsite luxury five-metre wide bell tents are available to book. Each comes with electricity, an outdoor fire pit and access to on-site private showers. Guests can also choose to stay at the north of England’s leading hot tub holiday destination, Ribblesdale Park, which is also nestled within the Gisburne Park Estate and features luxury lodges and cosy cottages.
Robyn Isherwood, Events Director of Gisburne Park Pop-Up says:
“After a summer of cancelled events, we wanted to deliver a unique, safe experience for people to enjoy outdoors with the Gisburne Park Pop-Up festival. There is something for everyone from socially-distanced raving to big name DJs, through to movie nights and family fun in the heart of the North West countryside.
“Our guests’ health and safety is our number one priority. We’ve ensured everyone can relax and enjoy the experience, safe in the knowledge that the strictest social distancing and hygiene measures are in place for all customers, staff and entertainers.”
Gisburne Park Pop-Up is sponsored by Moët Chandon, Peroni and HUN wines.
