Next Friday the (self-proclaimed) Northern Love Machine and I are ditching our parental responsibilities for the night and going off on a jolly to London. The reason? We’ve been invited along to experience Live By The Lake at Kenwood House. And I can’t bloody wait.
I’m a firm believer that parents need some downtime too, and what better way to grab that time than an open air concert at a stunning venue like this?
Remember these guys?
Stuff you need to know:
Live By The Lake runs from Friday 23rd August to Sunday 1st September and includes an amazing array of artists, including classical to Indie to crooners. You can check out the full line-up here.
You’re encouraged to take your own picnic (although Suede and Keane are standing only, so no picnics allowed) and chill out in the beautiful grounds while soaking up some stunning music.
If you don’t want to faff with your own sarnies then there’s an option to order a special Carluccio’s picnic. Just looking at pictures of it makes me hungry.
Can you tell I’m excited? A night off, in London, at a beautiful place with lovely friends. Couldn’t be more perfect really. (Hope it doesn’t rain.)
