June saw live music make a successful return to Kenwood House in Hampstead after almost five years.

Over 23,000 people attended performances by acts ranging from Alfie Boe to Haçienda Classical, via the Lightning Seeds and the Royal Philarmonic Concert Orchestra.

In total, over six nights, 23,340 people made it to the English Heritage property, where street food vendors and world famous acts entertained the masses for the first time since 2013.

Promoter Giles Cooper said: “The concerts were a resounding success with all of the artist’s performances being truly outstanding,

“Kenwood is not the easiest of sites to stage concerts, particularly in this era of heightened security. “Positioning the stage as we did and using the speaker systems we did, minimised disturbance to local residents hugely.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to all of the artists and the thousands of people that attended the concerts this year and very much look forward to returning in 2019.”
