With a full band and dancers, John Barrowman will provide a spectacular finale to our 20th anniversary celebrations. 

John Barrowman said: “I’m thrilled to be performing my summer concert at the favourite palace of so many kings and queens. I hope you’ll come hold court with me for this special mid-summer celebration.”    

He will join the legendary Liza Minnelli, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Katie Melua, James Morrison, Caro Emerald, Van Morrison, Jools Holland and His Rhythm and Blues Orchestra, Squeeze and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra who will perform a special 20th Anniversary Gala, which will be followed by spectacular fireworks over the Palace. 

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 (Palace Gardens open at 1730) and enjoy a delicious picnic courtesy of Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts, in the stunning Palace gardens.
