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.”

Classic Ibiza is also performing at a number of other venues next summer, including: Bowood House, Wiltshire, Blickling Estate, Norfolk and Hatfield House, Hertfordshire.

MailOnline Reporter

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.

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.

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

It’s Not Just Ibiza: Spain’s Other Balearic Islands – TravelPulse

Mike Posner famously popped a pill here. The Vengaboys “like to party” here. Heck, even David Bowie made mention of this island in “Life On Mars”.

If there’s one place in Spain’s Balearic Islands that we’re all pretty familiar with by now, even if only in name, it’s Ibiza. The island that has earned its reputation for being a party hangout is also littered with beautiful beaches, sleepy villages and pine clad hills.

But I’m here to delve into the other three main Balearic Islands, which often get overlooked. Let’s uncover the secrets of Majorca, Menorca and Formentera.

Majorca

Mention the word Majorca (also sometimes spelled Mallorca) to most British people and they’ll be able to tell you when their last vacation to the island was. It is as synonymous with European summer holidays as almost anywhere else on the continent, and there’s a reason that so many people flock to the island year after year.

First, it’s the largest of the Balearic Islands, meaning that it’s overflowing with resorts, bars, restaurants and beaches.

Pair that with the almost year-round beautiful weather and the vast the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range—which runs down the middle of the island and provides a dominating backdrop while offering a paradise for hikers and cyclists—and you’ve got a winner.

Stay at the Cala d’Or for the popular high-rise aparthotels and bustling port, Puerto de Pollensa, for a family-friendly retreat Deia for the laidback yoga-loving crowd or Puerto Andratx for a sophisticated fishing village vibe.

Menorca

Menorca is slightly more low-key than both Majorca and Ibiza, but no less alluring. It features stunning turquoise waters and scenic coastal paths.

History lovers flock to the island’s megalithic rock sites, (some of which are thought to date back to 2,000 BC), but most just choose to flop on the sands of the idyllic golden coves. After all, Menorca boasts more beaches than both Majorca and Ibiza combined.

Nightlife mainly revolves around the island’s delectable restaurants and bars, although there are a handful of clubs for those who want to impersonate Ibiza.

Stay along the cobbled streets of Ciutadella for a fusion of both modern and traditional, or Punta Prima for silky soft sands and resorts that cater perfectly for families. Santo Tomas offers a small village feel with a rugged coastline and Cala’n Bosch to be in the heart of the shopping and dining action.

Formentera

Formentera is small but perfectly formed and easily reached by ferry from Ibiza. Many consider it to be the most laidback and, dare I say “hippy-ish”, island of the group. Its standout features are definitely its clear waters lined with sand dunes and pine trees.

This tiny island is a favorite among celebrities due to its gorgeous beaches and family-loving resorts being more private and less crowded than those of its neighbors. Cycling, walking and yoga are usually the order of the day for the island’s visitors, before dining at harborside seafood restaurants and heading back to their stylish accommodation.

Stay at La Savina for a busy harbor front, inland lagoons and delicious cafes, Platja de Migjorn for sleepy beaches, quiet nightlife and maybe even some celeb-spotting along with Es Pujol for low-key resorts and shopping.

History lovers flock to the island’s megalithic rock sites, (some of which are thought to date back to 2,000 BC), but most just choose to flop on the sands of the idyllic golden coves. After all, Menorca boasts more beaches than both Majorca and Ibiza combined.

Nightlife mainly revolves around the island’s delectable restaurants and bars, although there are a handful of clubs for those who want to impersonate Ibiza.

Stay along the cobbled streets of Ciutadella for a fusion of both modern and traditional, or Punta Prima for silky soft sands and resorts that cater perfectly for families. Santo Tomas offers a small village feel with a rugged coastline and Cala’n Bosch to be in the heart of the shopping and dining action.

Formentera

Formentera is small but perfectly formed and easily reached by ferry from Ibiza. Many consider it to be the most laidback and, dare I say “hippy-ish”, island of the group. Its standout features are definitely its clear waters lined with sand dunes and pine trees.

This tiny island is a favorite among celebrities due to its gorgeous beaches and family-loving resorts being more private and less crowded than those of its neighbors. Cycling, walking and yoga are usually the order of the day for the island’s visitors, before dining at harborside seafood restaurants and heading back to their stylish accommodation.

Stay at La Savina for a busy harbor front, inland lagoons and delicious cafes, Platja de Migjorn for sleepy beaches, quiet nightlife and maybe even some celeb-spotting along with Es Pujol for low-key resorts and shopping.

It’s Not Just Ibiza: Spain’s Other Balearic Islands – TravelPulse

Mike Posner famously popped a pill here. The Vengaboys “like to party” here. Heck, even David Bowie made mention of this island in “Life On Mars”.

If there’s one place in Spain’s Balearic Islands that we’re all pretty familiar with by now, even if only in name, it’s Ibiza. The island that has earned its reputation for being a party hangout is also littered with beautiful beaches, sleepy villages and pine clad hills.

But I’m here to delve into the other three main Balearic Islands, which often get overlooked. Let’s uncover the secrets of Majorca, Menorca and Formentera.

Majorca

Mention the word Majorca (also sometimes spelled Mallorca) to most British people and they’ll be able to tell you when their last vacation to the island was. It is as synonymous with European summer holidays as almost anywhere else on the continent, and there’s a reason that so many people flock to the island year after year.

First, it’s the largest of the Balearic Islands, meaning that it’s overflowing with resorts, bars, restaurants and beaches.

Pair that with the almost year-round beautiful weather and the vast the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range—which runs down the middle of the island and provides a dominating backdrop while offering a paradise for hikers and cyclists—and you’ve got a winner.

Stay at the Cala d’Or for the popular high-rise aparthotels and bustling port, Puerto de Pollensa, for a family-friendly retreat Deia for the laidback yoga-loving crowd or Puerto Andratx for a sophisticated fishing village vibe.
