Hampton Court Palace Festival
The summer concert series returns to Hampton Court Palace in June 2022 with a line-up that includes Ministry of Sound Classical, Elbow, Ball & Boe, Kacey Musgraves, McFly, The Human League, George Benson, Jack Savoretti and Crowded House.
Set against the backdrop of Henry VIII’s magnificent Tudor mansion, the Hampton Court Palace Festival is a truly unique series of open-air concerts, which this year runs from Friday 10 June to Saturday 25 June.
It’s been running almost 30 years, and during that time has welcomed some of the world’s biggest musical superstars to the stage including Liza Minelli, Elton John, Kylie Minogue, Van Morrison, Bryan Adams, Frankie Valli and Katherine Jenkins, to name just a few.
The main stage in Base Court is a 3,000-seat alfresco auditorium, and each day of the festival there are performances on The Garden Stage by emerging singer-songwriters and accosting acts.
Gig-goers arrive at the Palace Gardens where they can plonk down a rug and enjoy a spot of picnicking – there are a range of yummy street food options. Or if you really fancy pushing the boat out, Waterside Gazebos are available for those who want to sit back and relax in luxury.
There are also exclusive dining and corporate entertainment packages on offer, in the palace’s gorgeous state apartments.
