We attended 2 Cellos on on 15th July 2018. I complained to GCE about the unacceptable 2 hour queues to enter the car park and the state of the toilets. In essence their reply boils down to: "Tough, we told you to be early -...More

We decided to go early to watch the world cup final and as we were staying in a local hotel we didn't drive, which after looking at the traffic was a good decision. The venue is beautiful and the hot sunny weather helped. On the...More

What a lovely setting. Beautiful grounds. Scenery just amazing. Went to see the 2 Cellos and it was fabulous atmosphere. Children encouraged to play, adults encouraged to dance. So lucky with the weather and all finished with a fireworks display.

Attended the concert at the weekend- beautiful site. The atmosphere was brilliant. My only gripe is that the food on offer was extortionate. We had a great night out and loved the whole thing - definitely worth travelling for.

We, in common with the others on here, attended Tokio Myers and the 2 cellos. We had pre-paid for the car park but didn’t get to use that particular facility. The queues to get in were dreadful and so we were going to abort and...More

Audley End should have been the perfect setting for yesterday’s Heritage Live Concert featuring the 2Cellos supported by Tokio Myers. Sadly it proved to be far from it. The organisation was simply appalling. We were lucky in that we did manage to get into the...More

We too went to see Tokyo Myers and Two Cellos last night. We thought we had left in plenty of time (I hate being late for anything), but were stuck for two hours in winding lanes and missed the start of Tokyo Myers, even though...More
