'I first heard The Shires several years ago when they [were] interviewed on BBC Radio 2, I then saw them perform live in Hyde Park last summer. They are an incredible act and blew everyone away, most seeing them for the first time. It was late afternoon and the sun was coming down. It was the perfect setting and one I'm looking forward to replicating for our picnickers at Taverham Hall this summer.'
