Essex Life has partnered with Down Hall to offer one lucky reader the chance to win four picnic tickets to see either Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra on June 15 or James Morrison on June 16 at Live at Down Hall

Plus, the winner will also enjoy two rooms for a separate overnight stay inclusive of dinner and breakfast.

Live at Down Hall is the luxury country house hotel's first ever al fresco weekend of music that will see two world class musicians perform.

Set within 110 acres of beautiful woodland and gardens on the Hertfordshire/Essex border, the stunning hotel grounds will be transformed into a concert space for two unforgettable evenings of live music from Jools Holland and James Morrison.

Supremely talented pianist Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra will be the first to perform on the Live at Down Hall stage. Special guest acts on the evening will include famed English drummer Gilson Lavis and boogie woogie queens Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall.

Brit-award winning singer-songwriter James Morrison will take to the stage the following night performing some of his most popular songs.

The lucky winner will receive four Picnic Experience tickets that include a glass of Champagne or Pimm's, as well as early access to the concert from 4pm. Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy finger sandwiches, mini pork pies, homemade cakes, scones with cream and jam and unlimited PMD tea or coffee.

Alternately, the savoury afternoon tea package includes a sandwich, homemade sausage rolls, homemade quiche, a side salad, crisps and dessert.

You and your guests will then have two hours to soak up the atmosphere before your chosen show. The winner will also be able to return to Down Hall and enjoy two rooms for an overnight stay that can be redeemed between June 17 and December 30, 2019, subject to availability.
