Two of the region's most renowned summer festivals have announced fabulous savings on their 2017 festival tickets for a limited time only.

After the success of Beverley Folk Festival 2016, plans are already underway for 2017. Now is the chance for revelers to purchase full weekend tickets for just £85 each – a saving of £35 off the full price.

Matt Snowden, voluntary festival chairman, explained: "We know the 2016 festival was only a few weeks ago, but we're already working hard to ensure 2017 will be another hit. To date, we can already confirm living folk legend Martin Carthy and his equally talented daughter Eliza Carthy are set to perform, as well as False Lights, one of the hottest folk rock groups on the scene."

"The Summer Sizzler ticket deal enables you to experience everything the festival has to offer. This year we had over 100 artists and groups performing, from big names like Kate Rusby and Steeleye Span, to some of the best young artists on the festival scene. We want 2017 to be even better, especially as it will take place during Hull's year as City of Culture. We want to play our part in helping to mark this fantastic opportunity for not just the city, but also Beverley and the wider East Riding area."

More artists for Beverley Folk Festival's 2017 line-up will be announced over the coming weeks. The Summer Sizzler is the best deal currently available, with ticket prices set to rise by the end of summer, so the advice from event organisers is for festival-goers to get them whilst they're hot!

The Summer Sizzler ticket deal can be purchased at £85 through www.beverleyfestival.com (free of charge for children under the age of 12). A weekend camping option is also available.

Beverley Folk Festival takes place from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th June 2017 at Beverley Racecourse

Alternatively, the Burton Agnes Jazz & Blues Festival, which began in 2007, will celebrate its tenth anniversary during the weekend of 30th June to 2nd July 2017.

This year the sun shone as festival goers were treated to a great line-up of performers, including the irrepressible talent of PP Arnold, the glorious Elaine Delmar and the vibrant Pan Jumby, to name but a few. Once the day's acts had finished on the main stage, the late night music sessions in the Bar Tent - including the brilliant Alligators - raised the crowd to their feet. Superb acoustic sets in the Elizabethan Great Hall and open microphone jam sessions in the courtyard completed the musical offering.

2017 Festival goers can expect a series of talented headline performers: encompassing fabulous jazz and groovy blues, up and coming new artists and the return of some regular favourites.

Bands and artists will provide music for all tastes; those seeking an ambient accompaniment to a glass of wine in the majestic grounds, to the jazz or blues aficionado wanting to get up close to star performers.

A mega early bird discount on weekend tickets is offered now, with £20 off the full value for a limited time only.

Artists will be announced over the coming weeks. Tickets are now on sale via www.burtonagnes.com/Jazz_Festival/Tickets_and_Prices.html, by telephone (01262 490324 weekdays 9am-5pm) or from any of the shops at Burton Agnes Hall.
