Legendary entertainer Jools Holland is set to bring his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra to Castle Howard as part of this year’s Summer Sounds.

With Castle Howard this year celebrating 25 years of summer picnic concerts, Jools’ brand of foot-tapping, feel good music is the perfect way to party the night away.

In addition to his Rhythm and Blues orchestra, Jools will also be joined by Marc Almond, plus Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall, Mabel Ray and Gilson Lavis.

David Stubley, of promoter Lighthouse Events, said: “Jools has a well-deserved reputation as one our greatest entertainers and we are delighted to be bringing him to Castle Howard.

“The combination of the spectacular setting together with fantastic music from Jools Holland will make it a truly special evening.”

It’s 10 years since Jools last performed at Castle Howard. The Jools Holland concert is on Friday August 21 and is the first of two shows with the Proms

Spectacular taking place on the following night. Both concerts will feature fireworks finales.
