Summer Loving at Harewood
Summer is getting into full swing at Harewood House this year with a fantastic choice of events for all the family to enjoy, from vintage fun at the Father’s Day Classic Car & Motor Show to singing along to your favourite Grease number at the Movie Weekend.
Celebrate Father’s Day this year at the renowned Father’s Day Classic Car & Motor Show on 16th June. Engross yourself in the vintage spirit with over 1000 vintage and classic vehicles to admire, competitions, arena acts, vintage fashion stalls and even swing dancing. Don’t miss The Breitling Wingwalkers who will take to the skies above Harewood on Sunday afternoon to perform a breathtaking acrobatic routine whilst strapped to the top wings of their beautiful 1930’s Boeing Stearman biplanes – a sight worth seeing!
This summer, experience Outdoor Theatre as you’ve never seen it before. With the grand Harewood House as the backdrop, see your favourite stories come to life, including the classic Pride and Prejudice on 30th June, The Mikado on 11th July, Shakespeare’s As You Like it on 25th July, Wind in the Willows on 8th August 2013, and Babe the Sheep Pig on 31st August.
The fun continues with VW Festival, back at Harewood for two full days of VW heaven 17th – 18th August. Now one of the largest VW shows in the country, the weekend will be packed full of VW fun, live music, a show and shine competition for the finest of VW’s and a four colour display in quintessentially British colours red, white, blue and classic black.
Following the success of the renowned Drive-in Movie event at Harewood over the years, we’re upping the ante this summer to bring you a Movie Weekend with a difference 24th – 25th August. On Saturday, don those pink jackets and grease those quiffs as you sing along to the world’s favourite musical, Grease. On Sunday, spend an evening under the stars watching a classic drive-in style movie (film to be confirmed). Both nights kick off with themed activities including cocktails and picnics at sunset to get you into the movie spirit.
