An exciting line-up of outdoor concerts will be gracing the great outdoors of Tamworth Castle Grounds in Staffordshire this summer. The concerts, which have just been announced, will see performances over three consecutive nights in the shadow of the medieval castle from Friday 4 August to Sunday 6 August. Tamworth Borough Council and MRC Presents have joined forces to bring the open air concerts to Tamworth Castle Grounds this year. The event will see six top-quality tribute acts perform across three great value double header shows. From ABBA to Meat Loaf, audiences can find an eclectic choice of acts, each celebrating an iconic artist or band.

The full line-up includes:
  • Friday 4 August: Believe - The Cher Songbook and Back Into Hell - A Tribute To Meat Loaf & Jim Steinman
  • Saturday 5 August: ELO Again and Bowie Experience
  • Sunday 6 August: Waterloo A Tribute To ABBA and Michael Starring Ben
  • Tickets are £25 per concert with no booking fees and inclusive of ticket refund protection, with multi tickets - giving access to all three concerts - available for the Early Bird price of just £45 when booked by 31 May (£55 from 1 June).

    Music to ring around Tamworth Castle Grounds in August


    Chris Jenkins, Director of MRC Presents said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Tamworth Borough Council to bring our Open Air Concerts to Tamworth this summer. The fantastic line-up offers a great variety of high calibre shows at an affordable price and in an incredible setting.” Councillor Robert Pritchard, Deputy Leader of Tamworth Borough Council, said: “After the huge success of last year’s ‘Castle Summer Fest’, which hosted live music, cinema and Commonwealth Games screenings, the council wanted to be able to bring another live stage to the Castle Grounds this August for a weekend of ‘Open Air Concerts’.

    Although this year will be on a much smaller scale than the Castle Summer Fest, we are delighted to work in partnership with concert promoters MRC Presents, as they announce a line-up of top tribute acts to the Castle Grounds for the weekend of the 4, 5, and 6 August. From Cher to Meat Loaf; ELO to Bowie and ABBA to Michael Jackson; there’s something for all pop and rock fans to enjoy. We can’t wait to see you all in the grounds for a weekend of fabulous tribute acts."
