Bringing back its socially distanced set up, the Gisburne Park Pop Up kicks off on Thursday, May 27th, featuring family shows, live music and more throughouy the Bank Holiday weekend.

The programme offers something for everyone and includes international renowned DJ’s, Sam Divine, Solardo, Eats Everything, Melé, Monki, Jess Bays & Maur, with returning favourites Symphonic Ibiza, Fleetwood Bac, The Family Show and Mamma Mia Live.

Nestled in the Lancashire countryside, Gisburne Park Pop-Up is set against the stunning backdrop of the 1000-acre Gisburne Park Estate.

In 2020, when events across the UK were cancelled, Gisburne Park organisers created an innovative socially distanced festival site with hexagonal pitches bookable for bubbles of six people.

The festival hosted nearly 150 events across the season, welcoming over 40,000 guests, all socially distanced and creating 100 jobs for the events industry in doing so.

This year the festival returns for one weekend only with a jam-packed weekend of live entertainment covering everything from an Ibiza Orchestra to Mamma Mia Live, food and drink and the option to enjoy a weekend of boutique glamping.

Gisburne Park’s socially distanced pitches give guests a designated plot of their own complete with deckchairs and table service for a VIP festival experience.

The full weekend line-up includes:

Thursday, May 27th Symphonic Ibiza

Friday, May 28th Sam Divine, Monki & Jess Bays

Saturday, May 29th (daytime) The Family Show

Saturday, May 29th (evening) Solardo & Maur

Sunday, May 30th (daytime) Fleetwood Bac

Sunday, May 30th (evening) Eats Everything & Melé

Monday, May 31st (daytime) Mamma Mia Live

Festival director Robyn Isherwood said: ‘I’m delighted we have the opportunity to bring back Gisburne Park Pop Up for one weekend only to give everyone something to look forward to, out of what has been the toughest lockdown yet.

"With light at the end of the tunnel and a very tough year for the estate, we certainly are looking forward to returning to weddings at the end of June and reopening the Holiday Park. However, having the opportunity of one big weekender we just had to bring it back!

"The initial response has been incredible, as I think people are just ready to get out and enjoy themselves, and we certainly can provide that, all in a safe and socially distanced manner! Hopefully given the roadmap we will be one of the last socially distanced events needed in the UK and festivals and events can resume as of the end of June.

"Fingers crossed for the industry as a whole.’

Tickets for the Gisburne Park Pop-Up can be purchased from Day tickets start from £35 for a child and £55 for an adult.
