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, June 8 and Saturday, June 24 and brings world class acts to the 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 returns to the stage with his incredibly talented band for a rare performance.

Will is one of the most well-­known and recognisable figures in British contemporary music.

Since 2002, his career has encompassed multi-­platinum albums, sell-­out live tours and numerous musical honours including two Brit Awards.

On June 14, 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.

Other artists so far confirmed to perform at the 25th anniversary of the summer festival include Bryan Ferry, Corinne Bailey Rae, Amy MacDonald, Van Morrison, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe, James Morrison, Jools Holland, Rick Astley, Björn Again and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.
