Sir Tom Jones 2018 concert
июль 2018 г.
beautiful grounds, lots of staff and road directions to entrances and parking were very well organised, lots of toilet blocks and consideration for disabled blocks and parking. beautiful venue, not allowed to take your own refreshments, food and beverages was expensive.
seating was too close together and plastic flip down chairs that were very uncomfortable and too close to the person next too you, not good for disabled, or people with back pain.

Excellent Garden centre
сент. 2018 г. • Для двоих
This independent garden centre is located in Englefield village, a short way off the A340 between Theale & Pangbourne. Whilst not as big as some of the major garden centres there is a good selection of plants, sundries & greetings cards, gifts etc in the shop. Prices are competitive & in many cases lower than that in major outlets. They sell a good selection of bedding plants & vegetable plants during springtime. What really impressed me on our visit yesterday was the selection of soft fruit bushes. I can honestly say it was one of the best & most comprehensive I've seen anywhere.

To attend another concert here would be Absolute Madness
июль 2018 г. • С друзьями
The Madness event on July 6th was absolutely appalling in all respects - apart from Madness and the Lightning Seeds, who were both excellent. However, the rest of the experience was dreadful.

It took over one hour to leave the car park, There was no organisation at all. This is basic stuff which clearly no one cared about.

The queue for drinks was way too long. The staff were slow and inefficient. Why not separate time-consuming PIMs preparation from the simple pouring of pints, for example? The drinks themselves were over-priced.

The support act was a group of kids called Tailormade. They were quite good but completely irrelevant to this audience. I assume they were there for promotional reasons.

I will not attend another event at this venue and will also avoid anything organised by Cuffe and Taylor. All involved should be ashamed of themselves.

Madness - Disgrace
июль 2018 г. • С друзьями
Madness concert - they were good. The rest of the event was ruined by waiting 1hr 10 mins for a drink - to be charged £5.50 for a can of cider!! Stewards refusing to let people leave through one exit. Just a disorganised shambles of an event. I will not return and heard dozens of other people say the same.

Sir Tom Jones
июль 2018 г. • Семейный отдых
Came to the Sir Tom Jones concert , long queues as expected on arrival but great signage and marshalling , bag searches quickly carried out on arrival by friendly staff.
As usual ludicrous drink prices, £5 for can of lager and £2.50 for bottle of water....
Into the ark were good even though few technical challenges....what had techs been doing all afternoon ????
Problems started when Sir Tom arrived , tickets said people might stand but stewards and some audience getting really stressed and making people sit... it’s a concert, people want to stand and dance !!!!!
Actual concert was ace, Sir Tom was awesome :) really knows how to work a crowd and still has amazing voice .
On leaving it was shambles, poor stewarding, no signs and poor lighting , took over hour to get out ...if you charge over odds for parking at least put on decent service

Overall was amazing concert but won’t rush back to this venue as seemed to be run by amateurs ....,.

Sir Tom Jones Concert
июль 2018 г. • Для двоих
We visited on Sunday to watch Sir Tom Jones and my observations were as follows

1.Stewards at the Car Park did not appear to be checking many cars for parking tickets that had been purchased in advance or taking cash from those who had not.As i had bought in advance I wish that I had not and I do resent having to pay for parking in addition to the concert ticket
2.Stewards checking bags for security were pleasant and professional
3.Into The Ark seemed overawed by the occasion and when there was a breakdown in equipment at the start did not seem to know what to say or do
4.Sir Tom was amazing and still has a fantastic voice and the song choices were excellent
5.There have been some comments about people standing when all tickets were for seats but the tickets did say people around you may be standing,and I must admit we stood for some of his songs
6.Food and drink were on the expensive side but that is to be expected at a concert nowadays.The chinese that we had was very good
7.My main criticism was leaving the car park where all the stewards seemed to have gone home and no one was there to direct us to the way out.After waiting an hour we ascertained from other people that there was an accident at the exit which was totally blocking the exit but no advice from anyone in authority.When we eventually reached the exit there was 8 lines of traffic trying to get out of a single track exit with 3 stewards trying to control this.What a complete shambles !! Surely they should have an emergency exit for this type of eventuality.Basically seemed to take our money then go home !!

They Couldn't Arrange A P*** Up In A Brewery
июль 2018 г. • С друзьями
I attended the Tom Jones concert with friends yesterday. He of course was fantastic - a true legend.
You were not allowed to take food or drink inside the venue apart from a small bottle of water. You were searched just in case you decided to smuggle in a roast chicken and a bottle of pinot. There was plenty of choice for food. Burgers/hot dogs/pizza/ etc the food options were expensive. We opted for pizza which for 2 was £22. They were cooked fresh and were tasty. It cost £12 for a pint of Pimms which is a total rip off. The ice-cream van made an absolute killing £2.50 for a can of coke or a 99.
It was allocated seating which I paid £62 for my ticket. Unfortunately, we had to stand up for the entire concert, as our view was blocked by the audience. It wasn't staggered enough in height. It would have been better if they has big screens so we could have actually seen Tom's face.
The toilets were an absolute joke. The queue resembled a conga. Not enough for the crowd. We managed to use the loos outside the gates it was a tag team event, one in one out. Made me chuckle.
What really soured the evening was the ridiculous parking system. It was ok getting in. Very straight forward. Leaving the venue was like whacky races. Poor lighting in the car parking area. No exit signs which caused acute confusion. No staff to direct cars safely out of the car park until you finally got near to the gate.It was total chaos and really dangerous as the audience were milling about trying to find their cars. It took me 1 hour to leave the car park. I paid an extra £11 for parking which you should be ashamed of charging. I wouldn't attend another concert at this particular venue which is a real pity as the house was a night back drop.

Concert outside Englefield House
июль 2018 г. • С друзьями
First visit to The Estate for a concert in the grounds. Saturday Evening we saw Michael Ball and Il Divo. Plenty of parking which is half price if you book in advance but it’s a very long walk to the house. It’s well lit though.Took a while to get out but that’s to be expected with the amount of cars there. Plenty of food and drinks available. The seating was good too with a fair amount of leg room.

Madness at Madness Concert
июль 2018 г. • С друзьями
Wonderful setting combined with great music from the Lighting Seeds and Madness. But it was all spoiled by hour long queues at the bar and no organisation of the exit from the car parks resulting in a 2 hour wait to get out.

Englefield House - poor experience
июль 2018 г. • Для двоих
Visited for the Tom Jones concert - he was great but here’s a few issues...

1. No information was provided about the start time other than “gates open at 5pm”. So we arrived some two hours early before anything happened at just after 7:30pm.

2. Banned from bringing in food and drink, forced to pay their rip off prices for a drink. £5 for a can of Carlsberg? What a disgrace. £6 for a tiny glass of Pimms!

3. Opening act, “Into the Ark”, dull repertoire with zero ability to engage the crowd when their kit failed to work at the start of their set. They need to watch their sponsor and learn a few things about creating atmosphere.

4. The exit from the car park was a complete shambles. Having paid an additional fee to park onsite it’s not unreasonable to expect some control on departure. Again smacks of owners keen to rake in the cash without giving a hoot for the poor schmucks paying to see Sir Tom.

So, where does fault lie for all of this? Well, the buck stops at the top. The Englefield Estate website exhorts how the Benyon family care about the community etc etc. Well, that must be the locals because this wasn’t evident to those who travelled from afar for this event. Sadly the promoter and Sir Tom’s people also have a stake in this because it’s their event. Cumulatively all parties should think about the guest experience and if they did so properly they’d make some changes. It might benefit others but not me, I shan’t return.

On the positive side apart from Sir Tom putting on a great show the team managing the security and entrance screening did their jobs with great humour and good service on an extraordinarily hot afternoon.
