A Classic Ibiza rave is taking place at a Midland stately home – Birmingham Mail

A stately home in Warwickshire is set to host a Classic Ibiza rave night – and it will feature an orchestra.

Classic Ibiza with Ministry of Sound is transforming Ragley Hall into an alfresco nightclub complete with lasers.

It will see the Urban Soul Orchestra and DJ Goldierocks perform some of the biggest dance tracks from the last 20 years.

Classic Ibiza

And it will happen in the summer so people can chill out with picnics and drinks whilst the sun sets before dancing the night away to tracks from the likes of Groove Armada, Darude, Fat Boy Slim, Faithless and Underworld.

The family-friendly event is happening at the Alcester stately home on Saturday, July 7, 2018.

Classic Ibiza

Early bird tickets are available now at a reduced price of £35 (£39.50 thereafter).

“There’s something really special about the combination of a beautiful stately home setting and music that gets absolutely everyone on their feet – I know that the Ragley crowd will absolutely love Classic Ibiza!” said Lisa Ward of Revival Productions.

Classic Ibiza concerts were held in stately homes across the UK last summer and proved to be very popular.

Urban Soul Orchestra has worked alongside Nightmares On Wax, Groove Armada, Ultra Naté, Octave One, Full Intention, Soul II Soul, Robert Miles, Sonique and Spiller.

Stephen Hussey, conductor and founder of USO, said: “If this year’s concerts are anything to go by, Ragley is in for a real treat next summer.

“Classic Ibiza is a heady mix of iconic dance tunes, a classical orchestra and a music festival in a stunning setting.

“Whether you want to sit back and relax with a glass of bubbly over a picnic in the evening sun, or get up and dance the night away, everyone is guaranteed a great time.”

The concert is expected to sell-out in advance.

Gates will open at 6pm and you can take your own picnic, or take advantage of the food outlets onsite. Car parking is free too.

Lisa Cope, event organiser at Ragley Hall, Park and Gardens, added: “What a truly memorable evening this promises to be, we are delighted to be hosting Classic Ibiza.

“The nature of Ragley is such that while we expect the concert to sell out, there will remain a wonderful sense of intimacy and camaraderie across the concert arena.

“We hope to establish Classic Ibiza as a permanent fixture in the Warwickshire social calendar.”

Ed Sheeran sports new Damien Hirst designed cast on fractured wrist in first appearance since revealing secret … – Daily Mail

He’s been forced to wear a cast and sling after fracturing both his wrist and elbow when he was struck by a car as he rode his bike. 

Yet Ed Sheeran found a way to jazz up the plaster as he visited renowned artist Damien Hirst for a bespoke design. 

He showed off the artist’s handiwork whilst stepping out in London Friday, which also came after he revealed a secret battle with substance abuse, which caused him to take a year-long hiatus from the music industry.

Ed seemed in good spirits on the outing, proudly brandishing his new polka dot cast. 

Clashing with his ensemble, Ed donned a red and black striped jumper that he teamed with jeans and a navy baseball cap. 

Ed seemed chirpy in his first appearance since admitting his sudden rise to international fame affected him in a negative way to the extent that he ‘started slipping into’ dangerous habits.

Speaking during Saturday night’s forthcoming episode of The Jonathan Ross Show, the Shape Of You hitmaker credited girlfriend and childhood friend, Cherry Seaborn, 24, with pulling him back from the brink. 

Discussing his meteoric rise to sudden fame, the British musician explained: ‘I didn’t really have any growing up time into getting famous. 

‘I think you need to, when you get into the industry, adjust to it – and I didn’t adjust because I was constantly working on tour. 

‘And all the pitfalls that people read about, I just found myself slipping into all of them. Mostly, like, substance abuse.

‘I never touched anything. I started slipping into it, and that’s why I took a year off and buggered off.’  

Speaking out: Ed's outing came after he revealed a secret battle with substance abuse, which caused him to take a year-long hiatus from the music industry

Sheeran said while his problems all started off ‘as a party’, the situation gradually deteriorated, and he realized he needed to address his demons when concerned friends and family members intervened. 

He explained to show host Jonathan Ross: ‘I didn’t really notice it was happening. It just started gradually happening, and then some people took me to one side and were like, “Calm yourself down”.

‘It’s all fun to begin with, it all starts off as a party and then you’re doing it on your own and it’s not, so that was a wake-up call and taking a year off.’

Sheeran did not specifically state which substance he was using, but has been open about his heavy drinking in the past.

The musician used the year-long hiatus to address his issues, and said his girlfriend of two years Cherry Seaborn was a ‘real help’ during the period. 

He explained: ‘I focused on work, and I can’t work under the influence, I can’t write songs under the influence, I can’t perform under the influence – so the more I worked the less [that happened]. 

‘I’ve worked my whole life to get to where I am and you can’t lose that over something that you do in your spare time.’

Of the positive impact his relationship has had on his issues, he added: ‘We live together now, and I think that was a real help grounding me. I was a 25 year old in the music industry on tour so I just needed someone to balance me out.’

Sheeran’s year-long hiatus came to an end in December 2016, and he released his third studio album Divide in March. 

The record became the fastest selling album by a male solo artist in the UK and had the biggest first week sales of 2017 in the US.

Sheeran has been open about his excessive drinking habits in the past, noting that he got to the point where he was consuming alcohol every single day.

Speaking in a profile with Rolling Stone magazine earlier this year, he said: ‘Often, I’m like, “Is it bad that I drink almost every single day?”

‘But I don’t wake up and drink. I don’t depend on drink. I can go without it completely. I just enjoy going out and having fun, being 25. And I think that’s a normal thing.’ 

The Grammy-winning musician has also detailed his experimentation with hallucinogenic drugs, claiming he once ‘fell in love with a beanbag’ when he was high on ecstasy.

The singer insisted he only tried the drug once while at a wedding in Ibiza, which became the inspiration for his hit track Bloodstream.

He explained: ‘I’m not a massive drug-taker, but that song was written after an experience in Ibiza and it’s basically about all the feelings that I got from that time.

‘It was weird, because I haven’t taken it since, it was literally just a one-time thing. It was MDMA and I fell in love with a beanbag. During it all I felt a lot of things: I felt anxiety, I felt love, I felt warm, I felt a bit weird.  

‘But I did actually go through two months where I’d been such a good boy for such a long time that I went and tried everything.’

Speaking to the Mail’s EVENT magazine, Sheeran said of his drug use: ‘There have been a couple of times over the past few years, but it’s not a regular thing. 

‘It happens when I’m under an immense amount of stress and pressure, and things just build up. But it’s not as dark as people make out. It’s educational.’

‘I’ve never gone for anything addictive. If anything ever got out of control, I’d just switch it off, like I did with drinking. I’ve got no deep-seated emotional turmoil, so there’s nothing really to go off the rails about.’

Forget the clubs, Ibiza tops the list for a relaxing beach holiday – the Irish News

SO, you’re going to Ibiza, are you? Away for all that clubbing and partying into the wee small hours, ha, ha ha…

And so went the general reaction to the shocking revelation that yes, my husband and I, were indeed off to Ibiza for a week, “at our age” which, let’s just say, in DJ years, is more Mike Reid than Calvin Harris.

We had ‘done’ Majorca and Menorca and so the only Balearic island left undiscovered was the great party island which defies easy explanation – a vacuous place paradoxically filled with meaning; one both demonised and idolised for its DJs and intoxicating, flamboyant clubs.

All-too-often, the antics of those frequenting the hedonistic party spots tend to eclipse the island’s outstanding beaches, and, so I’m told, “the third best sunset in the world”. (I’m not sure to which league table our Thomson (TUI) guide was referring, but he assured us that the top two spots were taken by Hawaii and Bali respectively).

But was there more? And what is it that attracts thousands of families to Ibiza each year; young parents with young children who have no interest in carousing with the crowds who each night surge en masse to San Antonio’s legendary Sunset Strip?

A promenade that stretches all the way around San Antonio Bay, from the far end of S’Arenal Beach, to tiny Calo des Moro cove to the north, the ‘strip’ provides stunning views from almost every point, each spot boasting its own unique ‘sunset atmosphere’ where you can sit at and marvel at the shifting sky in its dazzling last dance of the day.

It is from here that the majority of the island’s sunset cruises set off, each promising to find the best location at sea for holidaymakers to capture on camera the massive orange sun as it packs up for the night.

For most of the time, I’m sure these promises hold true, but on the night we boarded a catamaran, complimentary sangria (“Spanish Champagne” joked the skipper) in hand to watch the multi-spangled spectacle, last-minute clouds scuttled across the horizon and hid the much vaunted third-best sunset in the world.

No question, we were gutted, but as a sort of unwanted consolation prize, someone spotted a swordfish swimming full pelt in the glittery darkness… although, as luck would have it, we missed that too.

The main show of the evening was actually a free one when we disembarked, and consisted of an unofficial parade of clubbers as they made their way along the strip in glammed-up evening wear – mostly thong-bottomed beach bikinis with sparkle and heels added.

It is worth noting, though, that even when the sunsets don’t show up, the aforementioned cruises are still worth a trip, even if just to see the spectacular, ancient rock formations which rise like an alien landscape out of the deep and are breathtaking in their own right. Apparently, in the not-too-distant past, they were the mystical go-to place for a spot of nude sunbathing by the island’s long-standing hippy community.

Talking of which, the original and oldest hippy market, the Punta Arabí Hippy Market running each Wednesday in Es Canár in the north of the island, remains a huge pull for tourists on Ibiza for the first time.

Home to 500 craftspeople huddled under the shade of pine trees and makeshift canopies, the stallholders – not all, we suspected, genuine hippies – sell everything from hand-crafted leather goods, jewellery and art, to one-off fashion creations and hippy-style accessories embellished with obligatory feathers and beads.


The hilly old town in Ibiza town which offers superb views over the harbour

Ibiza has strong artistic roots stretching back to the early 60s when artisans, painters and designers flocked to the island to experience its atmosphere, light and ”freedom of expression’, but, while shades of the psychedelic remain (you may even smell something suspiciously sweet in the air), the worst aspects of commercial tourism are also on show.

Be aware, not everything is the bargain you may expect (there are plenty of what look like Moroccan knock-off handbags and carved wooden ornaments found on every street corner in every tourist hotspot the world over) although it’s still good for a wander – but not in the midday heat when you’re better heading off to one of the island’s superb beaches.

Some of the best of these can be found in Portinatx on the rocky northern coastline – the setting for the film South Pacific – where we were based for the week, staying in the TUI (Thomson) Sensimar (adults-only) Ibiza Beach Resort overlooking the bay.

Pretty and perky, Portinatx is infused with a modern beach resort feel and although you couldn’t in any way describe it as an authentic Spanish village, it does have some charms, evident in the pine-covered hills and a winding walk to the highest lighthouse in the Balearics which boasts cliff drops straight out of National Geographic.

Clear, turquoise waters lapping on the shoreline are safe for swimming – if you don’t mind sharing with the fish – and the bay is a favoured spot with snorkellers for obvious reasons.

While busy, its three beaches are never over-crowded and are only a stroll from a smattering of good restaurants, some of which even offer fine dining – Can Curreu is a good bet – and bars that live up to their names: Del Boy’s and Vincent’s come to mind.


At Cala d’Hort – spectacular, ancient rock formations rise like an alien landscape out of the deep and are breathtaking in their own right

But, as all-inclusive guests at the Sensimar Ibiza Beach, we dined mostly at either of the hotel’s two excellent restaurants which served up a high standard of local and international cuisine with impeccable service to match.

This modern, sprawling complex has so much going on that you really do have to make a conscious effort to leave. There is a smorgasbord of activities – fairly typical of a Thomson (TUI) holiday these days – with personal favourites of yoga on the beach, outdoor table tennis and acquarobic classes (in one of two sizeable swimming pools) a healthy way to break up a lazy day by the pool.

When you want a longer distraction, make a point of visiting Ibiza town, some 30 minutes away by taxi (€35 one way) which was a highlight and always worth seeing for its hilly views across the harbour from the old town and excellent shopping – particularly good quality, artisan craft shops and on-trend boutiques.

Ibiza may not have quite so much on the ‘see and do’ list as some of its more cultural neighbours, but for a relaxing beach holiday, it reigns supreme.

So, if you too, a la Vengaboys, decide you’re going to Ibiza, head to one of the many stunning coves and find your own spot to watch the sun go down. There are plenty to choose from, well out of earshot of that rowdy Café Mambo –which, by the way, is a total blast…

The TOWIE star, 24, paraded her tiny waist and ample assets in a tropical bikini by the poolside in Ibiza, before slipping into a skimpy white two-piece.

She looked every inch the beach babe as she flaunted her tanned and toned physique while perching by the side of the pool. 

Clearly pining for sunnier climes, Amber captioned it: ‘This weather has given me massive Ibiza blues.’

Another snap saw her showing off her lithe legs as she perched on a balcony in a black bikini.

‘Don’t do throwbacks but had to cos I miss the sun, my tan & being in this bikini,’ she said. ‘Need another holiday asap! Where too?’

Amber recently revealed the secret to her svelte physique was the non-surgical bum lift, which she also used on her legs and hips. 

Sharing a clip of the procedure, she explained to the camera: ‘It’s the only thing really that gets rid of my lumps and my bumps.

‘Obviously your diet and training helps but this really smooths the skin, tones it up, you can lose inches and you can notice it pretty much straight away.’ 

She added: ‘And you can also work on all areas of your body, I just wanna work on my legs, hips and bum, but you can work on your arms, you belly… all different.’

Amber recently rekindled her romance with TOWIE star Chris Clark in April, following his relationship with Little Mix star Jesy Nelson. 

The TOWIE hunk confirmed his relationship with the singer, 26, with a loved-up Instagram snap of the pair at the BRIT Awards in February – but they had split a mere two months later.

Their separation was reported to have come to an end over the phone, which Chris was quick to staunchly deny.

However, having first broken up in Halloween last year, Amber recently admitted that she was not fussed when he first moved on with the pop star during their break.

‘You think to yourself “Oh God, they’ve moved on!” It was all over social media too. But I just didn’t look at it. It wasn’t something I lost sleep over.’ 

Yet, Amber retained that the split did her and Chris, also 23, some good, allowing them to reevaluate their relationship for the better.

‘We’ve been with other people and we’ve grown up a bit. I think our break was the best thing that ever happened. It’s done us wonders and we’re happier than ever.’

She previously revealed she has toned up her legs, hips and bottom thanks to a non-surgical bum lift.

So it’s no wonder Amber Dowding was keen to show off her enviably svelte physique in a series of sizzling bikini throwback snaps.

The TOWIE star, 24, paraded her tiny waist and ample assets in a tropical bikini by the poolside in Ibiza, before slipping into a skimpy white two-piece.

Pick up a pretty printed bikini by Bamboa like Amber

Amber Dowding was feeling the winter blues this week as she uploaded a snap of herself in a bikini reminiscing over her holiday in Ibiza.

The star looked super sexy in the two piece that was prettily printed and boasted a cross halter front with a cut out middle that showed off rather a lot of decolletage!

The bikini is by Bamboa and you can shop it (right) just in time for that sunny winter vacay we know you’ve been eyeing up. If not, it’ll definitely keep until next year, this bikini is so fab it won’t be going off trend anytime soon.

But if you wan to see some pretty printed cross halter alternatives before making your mind up, head below to see options by Sunseeker, Beach Riot and more and simply take your pick.

She looked every inch the beach babe as she flaunted her tanned and toned physique while perching by the side of the pool. 

Clearly pining for sunnier climes, Amber captioned it: ‘This weather has given me massive Ibiza blues.’

Another snap saw her showing off her lithe legs as she perched on a balcony in a black bikini.

‘Don’t do throwbacks but had to cos I miss the sun, my tan & being in this bikini,’ she said. ‘Need another holiday asap! Where too?’

Amber recently revealed the secret to her svelte physique was the non-surgical bum lift, which she also used on her legs and hips. 

Sharing a clip of the procedure, she explained to the camera: ‘It’s the only thing really that gets rid of my lumps and my bumps.

‘Obviously your diet and training helps but this really smooths the skin, tones it up, you can lose inches and you can notice it pretty much straight away.’ 

She added: ‘And you can also work on all areas of your body, I just wanna work on my legs, hips and bum, but you can work on your arms, you belly… all different.’

Amber recently rekindled her romance with TOWIE star Chris Clark in April, following his relationship with Little Mix star Jesy Nelson. 

The TOWIE hunk confirmed his relationship with the singer, 26, with a loved-up Instagram snap of the pair at the BRIT Awards in February – but they had split a mere two months later.

Their separation was reported to have come to an end over the phone, which Chris was quick to staunchly deny.

However, having first broken up in Halloween last year, Amber recently admitted that she was not fussed when he first moved on with the pop star during their break.  

Opening up: Sharing a clip of the procedure, she explained to the camera: 'It's the only thing really that gets rid of my lumps and my bumps'. Pictured in August

Speaking to New! Magazine, the blonde explained: ‘Seeing an ex with someone new is always hard.

‘You think to yourself “Oh God, they’ve moved on!” It was all over social media too. But I just didn’t look at it. It wasn’t something I lost sleep over.’ 

Yet, Amber retained that the split did her and Chris, also 23, some good, allowing them to reevaluate their relationship for the better.

‘We’ve been with other people and we’ve grown up a bit. I think our break was the best thing that ever happened. It’s done us wonders and we’re happier than ever.’

We visited Ibiza’s Hostal La Torre, the Balearic haven that’s open all year round – Mixmag

“It’s a hotel, bar and restaurant that is in business to make money,” says International Feel founder and El Chiringuito, La Torre’s excellent sister restaurant which straddles the beach) or make a brisk hike north to rocky outcrop and bona fide hippy hangout Punta Galera. Carry on and you’ll soon come across the sparkling shores of Cala Salada and Cala Saladeta. You could hire a car, but as some prime spots are so close, you could easily base yourself at the hostal and forget about the rest of the world for a while.

And that’s pretty much why La Torre leaves warm memories for weeks after you’ve departed its terracotta embrace. You’ll find yourself at the bottom of its ancient fisherman’s steps, watching small waves lap at the rocks as darkness descends, or at a deserted Punta Galera at 9am, marvelling at the way the sea sparkles at that time in the morning. Then you’ll be rubbing shoulders with the one of the DJs who helped shape the culture as we know it and talking deep into the night in a setting far removed from the reality of home. And it’s open all year round, ready when you are.

Hostal La Torre is open all year. DJs play every day during the summer and on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during the off season. Rooms start at 82€ and you can book here
