Historic Royal Palaces and IMG are delighted to announce Will Young will perform for the first time at Hampton Court Palace Festival 2017. His debut festival performance forms part of the celebration surrounding this year’s 25th anniversary of the event. The iconic summer festival takes place between Thursday 8th June- Saturday 24th June and brings world-class acts to a spectacular setting. Artists will perform to a beautiful backdrop in Henry VIII’s open air Base Court for an intimate audience of 3,000.
Following on from the release of Summer Covers, an eclectic mix of fan-favourite jazz covers, Will Young returns to the stage with his incredibly talented band for a rare performance. Will Young is one of the most well-known and recognisable figures in British contemporary music.

On 14th June, he’ll take to the stage for his only full live show in London this summer in the stunning Tudor courtyard of Hampton Court Palace. Alongside some classic jazz standards, he will also perform new adaptations of his much-loved songs. Also, expect an abundance of funny stories and charming commentary throughout!
