Take your pick of Hylands Park events
A short distance from Chelmsford in Essex, the stately Hylands House was completed in 1730 and, in the early nineteenth century, redesigned in a beautiful neoclassical style. The surrounding park and gardens currently comprise of just under 600 acres and were restored from the 1960s onwards after being taken over by the local government. While the house and gardens are open to the public, Hylands Park hosts events of various sorts throughout the year. In addition to being available for private hire, concerts and music events are often held here. The most famous of these is no doubt the Hylands Park festival, which from 1996 to 2017 was known as "V Festival" and was re-launched in 2018 as RiZE Festival. While the venue has typically hosted around 170,000 people at the music festival, it is also popular for quieter events such as theatre productions, carol concerts and wedding fairs.

Hylands Park: a heritage venue
As the venue for its incredibly popular music festival, Hylands Park has seen the likes of Beyonce and Jay Z, Blur, Muse, Taylor Swift and Oasis perform within its grounds. Renamed RiZE Festival in 2018, the former V Festival (which, similar to the Leeds and Reading Festival, saw the artists also perform at Weston Park in Staffordshire) celebrated its new inauguration with a stellar line-up led by Liam Gallagher and Stereophonics. Camping at the festival is probably the only chance you will get to stay within the grounds of the beautiful Hylands Park, but a daytime visit is also an experience to remember. With its formal gardens, a lovely lake and acres of landscaped parkland, numerous Hylands Park events make use of the space to celebrate the venue's rural heritage in the form of county shows, Christmas fairs and farmers' markets. With on-site parking, bus links and a nearby railway station with connections to London, there's really no excuse to not visit Hylands Park in Chelmsford. Whether you want to camp out at a festival, source traditional produce or watch an open-air summer play, tickets for Hylands Park are available to buy or sell on StubHub.
