Award-winning law firm Brachers have been Headline Sponsor of the Leeds Castle Concert for the last four years and are once again supporting this iconic Kent event. Their sponsorship will help thousands reunite to celebrate and enjoy a much needed, outdoor music concert this summer.

Leeds Castle will once again play host to this spectacular event. In 2019 in celebration of Leeds Castle’s remarkable 900-year milestone, concert-goers witnessed the world premiere of “A Tribute to Leeds Castle” performed by the Band of the Royal Marines and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Internationally acclaimed conductor John Rigby returned to conduct this performance alongside both a varied and traditional programme. Enjoy the video highlights above and click here to read a review by the KM Media Group.

This iconic event is a highlight of the summer season,  set in the most spectacular location and natural amphitheater in front of the beautiful Leeds Castle, reputed to be the loveliest castle in the world.  People in their thousands have attended the stunning setting for over forty years to be entertained by this amazing open-air musical delight.

The event will once again include a spectacular fly-over with a Spitfire from the Aero Legends stable taking to the skies – a fitting tribute to this heritage event.   The magnificent evening will end in style with a spectacular fireworks finale.

Join us on Saturday 10th July, 2021 for a truly memorable evening, you will be enthralled by world-class music, captivated by famous performers, and amazed by our fireworks finale – all this while you have fun with your friends sipping champagne.
