Blickling Hall loses out on concert acts

Promoters say they were not able to book top acts for Blickling Hall

Blickling Hall will not stage any of its popular summer concerts this year because organisers could not secure any big names.

It's hoped the outdoor concerts, which attract up to 9,000 people a night, will return in 2011.

"We were unable to find the right line-up of artists," said David Heartfield from promoter The Rival Organisation.

"Rather than compromise on quality, the decision was made to take a break this year," he added.

The historic north Norfolk venue, run by the National Trust, has hosted a string of annual concerts with acts including Shirley Bassey, Westlife and Meat Loaf since 1997.
