KENWOOD House's famous season of outdoor concerts has moved a step closer to returning this summer.
On Thursday Camden Council granted English Heritage a licence for eight concerts in the grounds of the Grade II-listed building.
The licence approval is the first step in the return of the concerts, which were cancelled last year for the first time since they started in the summer of 1952.
Concert promoter IMG is awaiting planning approval for a newly located stage - which will help cut down on noise pollution - before announcing the artists who will perform this year.
