The Line Up

Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra will play at Kimbolton Castle on Saturday 1st September 2018

Set in the magnificent grounds of Kimbolton Castle, Jools and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra along with some of his long time vocalists: Ruby Turner, Mabel Ray and Rosie Mae, will perform for a guaranteed crowd pleasing show.

The irrepressible Jools Holland is best known for his energetic, piano-pounding performance of boogie-woogie, jazz, and R&B, and as one of the U.K.'s most popular television presenters. Jools has been touring with his veritable musical army, the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra for more than 20 years.

The current 19-piece Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra consists of pianist, organist, drummer, three female vocals, guitar, bass guitar, two tenor saxophones, two alto saxophones, baritone saxophone, three trumpets, and three trombones. They play to audiences in excess of 300,000 each year, touring all over the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, France, Holland, and Belgium.

As ever Jools’ show always features a special guest and for Kimbolton we are delighted to have Marc Almond. Marc was awarded an OBE in this year’s honours, for his services to arts and culture.

Kimbolton Castle is set in over 100 acres of mature Parkland and the concert will be hosted on the tree lined Mall offering a stunning backdrop of the castle itself. Used now as the centrepiece of Kimbolton School, the Castle originally dates from around the year 1200, and is most notable for being the family home of Catherine of Aragon from 1534.

The Kimbolton Estate hosts many events over the year, including the annual fireworks display that attracts over 10,000 guests each year. The venue offers a beautiful panorama, on site parking and a wealth of heritage.

Parking is available free of charge in the Castle Grounds via the Iron Gates. Signage will be erected on the main approaches to Kimbolton village and stewards will be on hand to direct guests on arrival.

A limited number of Priority Parking spaces are available to purchase in addition to tickets at a cost of £10 per vehicle. These can be purchased alongside concert tickets online. Priority Tickets must be scanned on arrival and displayed in vehicle window when parking.
