Hampton Court Palace Festival Celebrates its 20th Anniversary

Historic Royal Palaces and PWR Events are delighted to announce the first of the artists confirmed to perform in the stunning open-air courtyard of King Henry VIII’s Palace, taking place from 13th to 24th June 2011. Tickets go on sale at 5pm on Thursday 12th January.

Katie Melua, one of Britain’s most successful artists of the last decade who’s sold more than 11 million albums, will delight festivalgoers with familiar favourites such as Closest Thing To Crazy and Nine Million Bicycles, as well as performing songs from her new album Secret Symphony, due for release in March. Legendary Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons will perform their first concert in the UK for 18 years at Hampton Court Palace Festival. This eagerly awaited concert will give fans the chance to hear many of the classic hit songs played live, such as: Big Girls Don’t Cry, Walk Like A Man, Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You, Bye, Bye, Baby (Baby Goodbye), December 1963 (Oh What A Night) and Grease. Festival favourite, Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra will make a triumphant return delighting crowds on a summer’s evening and Caro Emerald, who recently appeared on Jools Holland’s Annual Hootenanny, will make her Festival debut this year with her eclectic style of ballroom jazz, cinematic tangos, groovin' jazz and infectious mambos with songs from her platinum-selling album Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor.

In addition to the music, Hampton Court Palace Festival is renowned for creating a truly unforgettable experience. Artists perform in the historic main courtyard of the magnificent Tudor Palace providing an intimate atmosphere for an audience of 3,000. Corporate hospitality is available in the State Apartments and Festival-goers can also arrive early (doors open at 1730) and enjoy a delicious picnic courtesy of Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts, in the stunning Palace gardens.
