Tofte Manor - in Sharnbrook - is due to play host to three outdoor day festivals this summer.

The 17th Century manor house, once worked on by the world famous painter Whistler, is also home to a unique labyrinth. The water that runs through the labyrinth, can be drunk and will be served for free to all guests at the venue.

It's the first time Tofte Manor will be used by the music community this summer - and the venue will host three outdoor day festivals promoted by Labyrinth events.

There are two stages at the venue - the labyrinth stage, positioned by the labyrinth in the gardens and the treehouse stage, where artists will play from under a treehouse in the woods.

The first show at the venue will be announced shortly, with tickets going on sale on April 1. The dates confirmed are July 10, August 7 and September 18.
