Hampton Court Palace Festival kicked off in spectacular style last night with an incredible set from Lionel Richie. On the first of three sold out dates Richie treated audiences to a greatest hits set which included timeless classics such as ‘Lady’, ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’, ‘Say You, Say Me’, ‘Hello’ and ‘All Night Long’.

This year’s Hampton Court Palace Festival is set to be the best yet with all Lionel Richie, Paloma Faith, Jools Holland, Gary Barlow and Tom Jones shows having completely sold out. There are limited tickets still available for Joe Bonamassa, The Beach Boys and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. VIP tickets are still available for The Beach Boys, Gary Barlow, Tom Jones and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. Tickets are available now at www.hamptoncourtpalacefestival.com

Now in its 26th year, Hampton Court Palace Festival is a series of truly special and unique open-air concerts. Artists perform in an intimate 3,000-seat auditorium in Base Court, set against the backdrop of Henry VIII’s magnificent Tudor Palace. 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 packages available, ensuring a memorable VIP experience. Indulge yourself in royal splendour, walk across the cobbles and follow in the footsteps of the infamous kings and queens for a unique evening to remember. You and your guests will not fail to be impressed by exclusive after-hours access to the Palace’s magnificent State Apartments, steeped in history. Immerse yourself in regal grandeur as you sip on champagne and enjoy an exceptional three-course dinner fit for a king where royalty once dined and entertained, accompanied by fine wines throughout. You will then take your premium seats in the stunning Tudor Courtyard for the main music event. VIP ticket prices vary according to artist.

This year we have teamed up with British Fine Foods to bring you our tasty Festival Picnic. Relax and soak up the pre-concert atmosphere while sharing and indulging in mouth-watering food from the most talented British producers. You can purchase your delicious Festival Picnic up to 3 days before the show.

Also available on site are the exclusive Waterside Gazebos which are a great way to add a little luxury to your evening, with dedicated waterside staff on hand to ensure you’re kept topped up and fulfilled on the night. Gazebos must be pre-booked ahead of the concert.
