The jazz and soul stars Corinne Bailey Rae, Jamie Cullum and Gregory Porter have been revealed as the latest new acts for this year's Nocturne season at Blenheim Palace.

The star singers will play the stately home's Great Court on Saturday June 17.

They join previously announced guests The Jacksons, Kool and the Gang and Max Richter for the four-day event.

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

Whilst 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. 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 15-18.

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