The Silverstone Classic returns this weekend with three days of music to soundtrack the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival.

Tomorrow night, Floyd Reloaded, stars from The Commitments and Boot Led Zeppelen will play.

The Saturday night will be headlined by The Hollies, with support from The Guns N Roses Experience and The Ultimate Eagles.

Finishing proceedings on Sunday afternoon will be all-female act, the Tetra Electra Quartet, who will perform amplified arrangements of classical favourites.

Formed in the early 1960s, The Hollies enjoyed no fewer than 30 singles in the UK charts and along with the Rolling Stones are one of the few British groups from the era that have kept performing for more than 50 years.

Two of the original band members – guitarist Tony Hicks and drummer Bobby Elliot – are still present today and they will be on hand to play some of their best- known hits.

Three-day adult weekend tickets cost £95 with day tickets from £35.

Concessions are available.

Tickets must be booked in advance as they will not be on sale on the day.
