Stockeld Rox has been announced this week as one of the events planned to return to the area as the country moves out of Covid-19 restrictions.

“This year, on the evening’s of 29th and 30th August, Stockeld Park have prepared an amazing line up of some of the most renowned tribute acts, including the likes of Madonna, Jessie J, Rita Ora and Take That,” said a spokesman for the popular family theme park.

“On each night there will also be a live DJ supported by presenters from Your Harrogate Radio, and delicious food and drinks.

“Stockeld Rox will be an evening of live entertainment and fun that you and your family will not want to miss.”

They added: “On both nights, Take That will be closing the show with a spectacular firework finale.”

There will be a variety of ticket options available to buy, from socially distanced VIP boxes to general admission tickets.

Stockeld Rox tickets will be launching online on May 29 on the Stockeld Park website.

But park bosses warn that Stockeld Rox tickets are separate to park day passes and will not grant entry to activities.

Stockeld Park last month announced that it is to invest several million pounts and create dozens of new jobs in creating one of Europe’s biggest indoor children’s play centres in Yorkshire in 2022.

Set in the grounds of the 2,000-acre Stockeld Park Estate, close to Wetherby, the Playhive will feature a series of themed and interconnected adventure zones set in a doughnut-shaped building with a 33-foot tower at its centre.

The Playhive is the brainchild of Peter and Susie Grant, who own and run Stockeld Park, and who have designed the new indoor spectacle from concept.

It has capacity for 2,000 visitors per day and is expected to bring significant additional revenues to the area.
