Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter and Corinne Bailey Rae are the latest big names announced for the Nocturne concert series at Blenheim Palace in June.

The trio of award-winning singers, who have sold over 15 million albums between them, will all perform full sets on the night drawing on songs from across their extensive back catalogues on Saturday June 17.

While Cullum makes his first return to Blenheim Palace since his career-defining, sell-out concert in 2004, Porter returns following his show with Van Morrison at the first Nocturne in 2015 and Bailey Rae will make her debut at the world heritage site fresh off the back of a global tour in 2016.

The Nocturne concert series, which last year featured performances from Elton John, Jack Savoretti, Ennio Morricone and The Corrs, runs from June 15 to 18. Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter and Corinne Bailey Rae join The Jacksons and Kool & The Gang and award-winning composer Max Richter on this year’s bill.

Tickets for the Saturday night start at £45 and are on sale at 9am on Thursday February 16.
