2019 sees Ronan Keating starting his 26th year in the music industry, making him something of an anomaly in the world of pop music!

Born in Dublin, Ronan Keating originally found fame as part of the hit nineties boy band Boyzone. Founded by Louis Walsh, the group achieved unparalleled success all over Europe and were widely touted as Ireland's answer to Take That. Their first taste of musical success came in November 1994 when Boyzone hit the top three for the very first time with their first hit 'Love Me for A Reason'. 

In those initial five years as part of one the biggest pop bands ever, he enjoyed success with an incredible 16 top five singles, six of which hit the number one spot. In August of 1999 he had his first ever solo number one with 'When You Say Nothing at All' from the hit movie 'Notting Hill'.

In August of 2000 Ronan released his debut, self-titled, album. It shot straight to number one in the UK Album Charts, it contained the two number one singles 'When You Say Nothing at All' and 'Life Is A Rollercoaster'. It went on to sell a very impressive 4.4 million copies around the world and firmly established Ronan as an artist in his own right!

Ronan boasts a lifetime of impressive professional achievements including; dueting with Elton John at Madison Square Garden, singing for the Pope, hosting everything from Eurovision Song Contest and MTV Europe Awards, acting as a judge on the no 1 TV show X Factor in Australia, recording with Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens), writing an autobiography, guiding Westlife to stardom, winning a prestigious BMI European Song Writing Award, winning an Ivor Novello Award, being appointed as a UN Goodwill Ambassador, providing the singing voice for Postman Pat, plus too many hits, gigs and awards to keep count, Ronan's prolific, varied and highly successful career shows no sign of slowing. 

Supporting Ronan will be The Wandering Hearts and Katie Kittermaster. Harmony-laden Americana band The Wandering Hearts burst onto the scene last year with their debut album Wild Silence. Signed to Decca Records (discovered a mere 30mins after uploading their first track to Soundcloud), the London-based band had a whirlwind 2018. They won the coveted Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award at the UK Americana Awards before heading out on a sold-out album tour. Katie Kittermaster is an 18 year old singer/ songwriter from Kent. Her vocals are haunting and distinctive and she is a rising new talent and one to watch!

 

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.
