Glade Electronic Music Festival forced to move again

New location confirmed as Houghton Hall in Norfolk

Glade really have been up against it this year, last week the trustees of Mansion House, Biggleswade decided they did not want the event to take place on their site, despite the fact that contracts had been signed off. Loosing your venue this close to the event would have floored most organisers but the crew at Glade are not so easily dissuaded and now they can confirm that the new site for 2011’s event will be Houghton Hall in Norfolk. Lord Cholmondeley who owns the estate at Houghton Hall and the surrounding estate has welcomed Glade and this is where the event will take place in 2011 and for the foreseeable future.

“Last week I got back to work having taken some time off to get married the weekend before, to find that the proverbial had hit the fan. We lost our site last week. The trustees at the Mansion House decided that they didn’t want the event after all, despite contracts signed and deposits paid. The new Glade team decided not to tell me so that it wouldn’t ruin my big day and what they have done, amazingly, is manage to miraculously find another venue. The new site, whilst being a bit further away from London, is by far superior. It is set in beautiful, privately owned 5,000 acre Estate which set in beautiful parkland laid out in the 1720’s. It is also on sand, meaning excellent drainage, so we won’t be having a repeat of the floods of 2009, regardless of the weather.”
Glade organiser Ans

Houghton Hall is situated just outside King’s Lynn where the nearest station is. There will be shuttle busses running between the site and the Hall.

"We are delighted to be hosting The Glade Festival at Houghton Hall this summer. This is a new event for Houghton but something that we think will work well in the beautiful and historic Park. We welcome the new management team, who come highly recommended, we know are renowned in the industry and have an outstanding portfolio of events. We are excited to see what they do with The Glade, and look forward to working with them."
Lord Cholmondeley

Tickets are on sale now at £135 + BF, a campervan pass is £50 - the capacity of the festival is strictly limited to 5000
