Music At Knebworth
Music has featured throughout Knebworth’s history. The old hall was alive with music in the Sixties – that’s the 1760s – when Scotland’s foremost composer of that century, James Oswald was married to Leonora Lytton and composing popular hits such as “Knebworth Jig” (performed here by Snake Davis www.snakedavis.com).
Since the early 1980s Knebworth House has also been a popular venue for music videos, including The Simple Minds’ “Don’t You Forget About Me”, as used in the cult movie “The Breakfast Club”.

Of course, here in the 21st Century, Knebworth Park is internationally known as Britain’s largest music venue, and the British home of classic rock.
In 2014 Knebworth celebrates 40 years as the home of British rock music.
Throughout July and August, there will be a fascinating exhibition of rock and concert memorabilia on display in Knebworth House. [exhibition is included in the House admission ticket].
