Pictures here! Zara Larsson kicks off Radio 1’s Big Weekend

Zara Larsson has kicked off Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2017 in style at Burton Constable Hall right here in East Yorkshire!

1000’s of people from the East Riding are among the 25,000 strong sell out crowd who are all enjoying the glorious weather – despite the passing shower.

Photographer Mike Hopps is on site capturing the action over the whole weekend!


There will be a number of additional security measures in place this weekend. Please take them into account when you’re planning your journey and allow extra time.

They include:

  • Body and bag searches will be carried out, both at the transport hubs and at the entrance to the site.
  • All attendees must travel to the site on one of the official shuttle buses or park and ride schemes. You CANNOT arrive or leave by private car, on foot or by taxi. If you have not yet booked a seat on a shuttle bus, you have until 6pm tomorrow (Friday, May 26). Tickets for the buses can be bought on the day, but the price will increase to cover the additional administration costs. Shuttle buses will cost £15 return and parking at park and ride sites is £10.
  • The only exception is for blue badge holders, who can access limited free parking – which must be booked in advance. The venue will be signposted from the outskirts and at major junctions within a 5-mile radius. On the approach please follow the disabled parking signage. Please allow additional time, as all vehicles will also be searched.
  • Please do not bring along large bags, as this will slow the search process. You can’t bring along your own food and drink – with the exception of up to 500ml of water in a plastic container with an unbroken seal.

Radio One’s Big Weekend is now in its 14th year and will be taking place at Burton Constable Hall as part of Hull’s UK City of Culture, on May 27th and 28th.
