Summer is now officially here and one great British tradition is the outdoor summer concert. If you are taking a short cottage break this summer why not look up what concerts are on in the local area. There are shows held al fresco throughout the UK in the summer months with music ranging from jazz to classical to rock. It can be great fun to take a picnic blanket, pack a picnic, some good wine and enjoy special times with friends on a summers night. Some of these outdoor events are held in fabulous locations such as the grounds of impressive large country houses and be a great chance to spend some time in the beautiful British countryside. Do book early, these events are understandably popular.
