​Each year down in Surrey, by the grand historic Palace set by the River Thames and its surrounding villages on both sides, Hampton Court Palace Festival hosts a set of musical evenings that cover a few genres but present big names. And we mean big, as these acts usually fill The Royal Festival Hall, The London Palladium and other prestige venues. Here is what we know… ​

This unique Festival has been running for 26 years in Base Court at Hampton Court Palace with world-class artists, spectacular fireworks and exquisite culinary experiences. Those who have previously performed at the Festival include: Cliff Richard, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Liza Minnelli, Frankie Valli, Van Morrison, Russell Watson, James Blunt, James Morrison, Bryan Adams, Caro Emerald, Katie Melua, Andrea Bocelli, Darcey Bussell, Jose Carreras, Joaquin Cortes, The Gipsy Kings, Bryn Terfel, Brian Wilson, Katherine Jenkins, Rufus Wainwright, Tracy Chapman, Michael Ball, Alfie Boe, Will Young and Art Garfunkel to name a few.

Attendees will arrive at the sumptuous Palace Gardens to enjoy a spot of picnicking in the spectacular surroundings with champagne available to purchase from the festival’s Champagne Partner, Champagne PIAFF.


The festival also offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate special occasions in a prestigious setting, with exclusive dining and corporate entertainment available, ensuring a memorable VIP experience.  Artists perform in an intimate 3,000-seat auditorium in Base Court, set against the backdrop of Henry VIII’s magnificent Tudor Palace.
