Finchcocks Festival 2024

We’re delighted to announce the dates for this year’s summer Finchcocks music festival.

On Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 August 2024, Finchcocks private gardens will open to the public. Saturday sees the return of Jazz on the lawn in the beautiful, walled garden and Sunday an open-air piano concert against the west elevation on our outdoor stage.

The Finchcocks Trio: David Hall, Jennifer Maslin & James Sunney

Back by popular demand, we begin our weekend of music, Saturday 17 August, with Jazz on the Lawn.

Located in the beautiful walled garden, you’ll find the perfect setting for a relaxed afternoon of happy, light swing, Latin, blues and jazz with the Finchcocks Jazz Trio!
