Porsche Centre Bournemouth was delighted to sponsor the fabulous Upton House Music Festival for a second year. This incredible musical event comprised three sensational nights of open-air picnic concerts staged in the beautiful grounds of Upton House, in one of Dorset’s most picturesque parks.
Top names that headlined the event included Sir Bryn Terfel, Billy Ocean, Kim Wilde, Toyah and Michael Bolton. Guests could choose to picnic on the lawns, enjoy a Gold Circle reserved seat or VIP hospitality.
The rain did not put off hundreds of spectators who watched Sir Bryn Terfel performing with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra on the first evening along with Escala, the all-female string quartet.
On the second night, 4,500 people enjoyed an eighties extravanganza where Billy Ocean, Kim Wilde and Toyah soon had everyone up and dancing. On the final night, international idol Michael Bolton, supported by multi-platinum selling Kenny Thomas, brought the festival to a close in superstar style. Our VIP guests were invited to meet the headline acts at the end of each evening.
This event brings together a variety of high-profile local companies and organisations who sponsor and partner the festival, to raise funds for local charities. We look forward to hearing who will be on the line-up in 2018.
Please call the team on 01202 897688 for more information about the event or about any of the cars we had on display over the three days.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
