The Kingdom Choir

Prior to performing in front of nearly 2 billion people at the Royal Wedding, the largest audience The Kingdom Choir had performed to was just 200 people. Here’s a chance to see them return to these intimate roots with their Saturday evening performance in the stunning grounds of Melbourne Hall.

Following their show-stopping performance of “Stand by Me” at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, The Kingdom Choir have since toured a sell-out show across 18 cities in the UK, performed at BST Hyde Park with Barbra Streisand, appeared on numerous television shows around the world and headlined at festivals including Latitude, Hay and Cornbury.  The Choir’s rendition of “Stand by Me” went straight to the top of the US Billboard charts, and since releasing their first full-length album worldwide on Sony Music in 2018, their success has truly been a global story.

Seating provided, food and drink available, no picnics.
