The legendary Nile Rodgers & CHIC have been announced for a spectacular open air concert on Saturday 1st July 2023 at Broadlands, the mid-Georgian estate situated in picturesque parkland by the River Test near Romsey in Hampshire.
Nile Rodgers is a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee and a multiple Grammy Award winning songwriter, composer, producer, arranger, and guitarist.
As the co-founder of CHIC, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping hits like “Le Freak”, the biggest selling single in the history of Atlantic Records, and sparked the advent of hip-hop with “Good Times.”
The concert features support acts Soul II Soul and Trevor Nelson

Please note: Traffic management around Romsey for this event will be similar to that put in place for Romsey Show.
Temporary traffic lights at Palmerston roundabout by Broadlands Gate will control access to Broadlands and a pedestrian crossing by Burma Road (east of roundabout), these lights will be manually controlled to assist traffic flow on A27 Romsey Bypass, however delays are to be expected.The section of Palmerston Street between roundabout and Broadwater Road will be closed.
Access to Broadwater Road from The Hundred will be maintained throughout.
There will be a second set of temporary traffic lights operational at the end of Lee Lane where it meets Southampton Road (Long Wall), again manually controlled to ease traffic flow.
Allow extra time for travel. Delays are possible from around 5pm to close of the concert which could extend to 11pm.
Our advice is to access Romsey carparks via Greatbridge / Winchester Road / Alma Road.
Past experience would suggest worst congestion will be on the A3090 (Pauncefoot Hill), A27 Sherfield English and A27 through North Baddesley roads.
