These are year-round events with brilliant headliners and party bands, high energy, dancing, late as you like for night owls, then lazy next-day breakfasts. The vibe though is unapologetically decadent. Imagine heritage manors and coastal boltholes instead of tents. Indoor stages and reserved tables. And comfort that’s layered up with king-size beds, exquisite dining, pools, afternoon tea and beautiful gardens. 

Always a sell-out, the pick includes Motown & Soul, the nostalgia of the 60s, 70s and 80s and the best tributes in the business playing homage to legends like Bowie, Billy Joel, Elton John and Take That.
