Ella Henderson

Having burst onto the scene 10 years ago with a No.1 debut single (“Ghost”) and album (“Chapter One”), Ella Henderson has since become a multi-platinum selling, two-time BRIT Award nominee, with over a billion streams to her name - all by the age of 26. To date, Ella has achieved five UK Top 10s as a lead artist, including the duet, “Let’s Go Home Together”, with Tom Grennan, and an Ivor Novello nomination for ‘Best Song Musically and Lyrically’.

In 2022, Ella released her long-awaited second album “Everything I Didn’t Say”; featuring the powerful lead single, “Brave”, the record debuted in the Official Charts UK Top 10, becoming her second to do so.

A hit songwriter and powerhouse vocalist, Ella has collaborated with musical heavyweights and superstar DJs alike, including Ryan Tedder, Babyface, Sigma, and Kygo, as well as featuring on smash hits from David Guetta (“Crazy What Love Can Do” with Becky Hill) and Nathan Dawe (“21 Reasons”).

Jessie J

Wielding seismic vocals that register on the Richter scale, unbridled soul, confessional lyrics, and empowering attitude, the multiplatinum BRIT Award-winning and GRAMMY® Award-nominated songstress Jessie J touches hearts every time she steps up to a microphone. With over 1.5 billion streams, countless gold and platinum certifications, and 23 million record sales to date, the singer’s voice continues to ring out in nearly every corner of the globe.

In 2011, she carved out a spot on the world stage with her full-length debut, Who You Are. Not only did it go platinum, but it also bowed in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 and yielded six Top 10 smashes at radio. Among those, “Price Tag” [feat. B.o.B] clinched #1 in 18 territories and eventually became quadruple-platinum. The double-platinum “Domino” arrived on its heels. Countless accolades followed with the prestigious BRIT Award for “Critic’s Choice,” BBC’s “Sound of 2011,” and an invitation to serve as the 2012 London Olympic Games Ambassador. 2014 exploded as her once in a lifetime team-up “Bang Bang”—with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj—dominated charts and earned a six-times platinum certification. Her sophomore set, Sweet Talker, entered the Top 200 in the Top 10.

In 2016, Jessie J took over the big screen, making her debut as Sid's love interest, Brooke, in Ice Age: Collision Course. She also opened Fox’s Grease Live with a cover of the title song “Grease Is the Word.”

In between jaw-dropping performances everywhere, she underwent an impressive transformation throughout 2017. Opening up like never before, she crafted an epic body of work in the form of R.O.S.E. [Realizations, Obsessions, Sex, and Empowerment]. Released in four parts over 2018, she brought this confessional opus to the masses with sold out shows on both sides of the pond and amplified her impact dramatically in the process. At the same time, she capped off the year with her first-ever holiday album, This Christmas Day. The project boasted dream collaborations with Boyz II Men and Babyface as she breathed new life into numerous Christmas staples.

A decade since she started uploading now-classic bedroom covers, and Jessie J’s voice keeps getting bolder, better, and bigger. First single “I Want Love” off her new project, executive produced by Ryan Tedder, was released in 2021 to rave reviews. With further new music in the works and anticipation mounting, the next generation might just belong to her too.

Phats & Small

Best known for international hit single Turn Around, Phats and Small are a British dance music duo made up of Jason "Phats" Hayward and Russel Small.

Phats & Small stormed the music scene in 1998 with debut single Turn Around reaching number three in the UK Singles Chart before climbing to number two. Only a year later had they released their first album, Now Phats What I Small Music, a clever play on words combining their names with compilation series Now That's What I Call Music.

Now veterans of the scene with more than 20 years’ experience behind them, the pair have played sold out shows at top clubs all over the world including many of the world’s greatest from Cocoon in Frankfurt to Ministry Of Sound in London. Along the way they have teamed up with fellow big stars such as Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox, Todd Terry and Arthur Baker. Now they are as important and influential as ever, and are signed to the Armada label founded by legendary EDM star Armin van Buuren.

Accessibility information, about our concert events:

We want our Wild Live concerts to be enjoyable and accessible for everyone.

Given the style of our concerts, the audience typically either stands, or sits on picnic blankets. We encourage everyone to bring your own portable seating / small fold-out chairs if required.

The site we use for the event is a green field – it’s a grass surface and doesn’t have any pathways. Mostly, the area is reasonably flat and even, as it’s regularly used for car parking. Nevertheless, please consider the ground conditions, and the possible impact of the changeable British weather, when deciding what facilities or equipment you wish to bring.

The entrance to the concert area is approximately a 25-minute walk from the new main entrance and car parks to the concert field. Guests with a blue badge will be able to park adjacent to the concert field in the stage side car park. Guests with mobility issues who do not have a blue badge are recommended to purchase a Stage Parking pass.

Please note: Blue Badge Parking must be parked no later than 4:00pm. Any arrivals after this time will not be able to access parking.


There is an allocated disabled car park for blue badge holders only. This is located next to the concert field, please show your blue badge on arrival. You do NOT need to book stage parking if you hold a disabled blue badge. Please note that this carpark will be held until the show field has emptied for guest safety.

We do offer a dedicated accessible viewing area for blue badge holders only which is close to the stage. This area must be pre-booked as capacity is restricted. Each guest can be accompanied by one carer in this area. Carers must provide the correct ID.

Chairs will not be allowed immediately in front of the stage for the safety of guests who choose to stand.
