Stately home rocks

MUSIC and lights were enjoyed by revellers at a stately home in Wraxall on Sunday.

National Trust property Tyntesfield was taken over by live bands from all over the country, a demonstration of free running and a backdrop provided by a stunning digital graffiti light show.

Young bands including Stories Take Shape, Mayans, Lydia Rose, Open to Offers, 6Fears7 and The Famous Class entertained the crowds at the event, organised by the estate’s own youth volunteer panel TYNTE in partnership with arts groups somewhereto_ and Youth4Youth.

Tyntesfield’s skills supervisor Katie Laidlaw said: “From the start of the project to save Tyntesfield we have always looked to work with different groups from the local communities so Tyntesfield feels part of everyone’s world.

“Our youth panel TYNTE have made a fantastic contribution in making Tyntesfield an exciting and vibrant place for young people to connect with and as a place of learning.
