Raising the Roof with Roberts Bakery Band!

By on November 5, 2013

Roberts Bakery Band will be raising the roof at Tatton this Christmas and cooking up a seasonal selection of brass band music.

Their concert in Tatton’s stately Tenants’ Hall on Saturday, December 14 is the last of a series of Christmas concerts taking place at Tatton this year.

Guaranteed to banish those winter blues, Tatton’s concert series has long established itself as one of the highlights of the festive season, making fantastic Christmas presents for friends and loved ones.  With only eight weeks until Christmas, tickets are already selling fast..

The Northern Chamber Orchestra, joined by Vocaliser choir from Saints Peter and Paul Catholic College, Widnes, will be commencing festivities with an evening of classical Christmas favourites, and carols on Thursday, December 12. This is followed on Friday, December 13 by the City of Chester Male Voice Choir.

We end the Christmas concert season on a high note on Saturday, December 13 with an evening of brass band music by Roberts Bakery Band.  The Northwich- based and internationally touring band will treat the audience to a repertoire of classical, traditional and popular music.

Tatton Park Events manager Bridget Roberts said: “The Tatton Park Concerts are firmly embedded as a must see element of our Christmas festivities.  Guests return year on year to enjoy the fantastic range of music and entertainment on offer.  We all look forward to these concerts and Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without them. Each year the programme changes to keep things exciting and new, but the skill and talent shown by these musicians never alters. A truly wonderful night out!”

All concerts take place in the Tenants’ Hall of Tatton’s stunning neo-classical mansion.  Visitors to the evening concert performances have the opportunity to stroll though the beautifully decorated mansion, which this year reflects a glittering White Christmas reminiscent of Alpine scenes the Egerton family would have enjoyed in their 19th century travels. Snowy landscapes are reflected in the strikingly decorated staterooms dressed with flowers, foliage, greenery and other natural material from the parkland and gardens. Concert goers will be able to enjoy a warm winter drink before the performances commence at 8pm.

Pre-concert suppers are available in the Stables restaurant or in the new cosy Gardener’s Cottage tea room.  Visit on the night or reserve a table on 01565 755001 for the Stables or 01625 374467 for the Gardener’s Cottage.

The concerts are part of a full events calendar at Tatton Park this Christmas.  For a full listing of all Christmas events call 01625 374400 or  please visit our website.
