Nocturne Live is a 4 day concert series held in the Great Court of Blenheim Palace - a UNESCO world heritage site, the birthplace of Winston Churchill and, undisputedly, the most beautiful stately home in the UK. It is widely considered the premier stately home concert series in the country.
The Great Court is turned into a 10,000 capacity amphitheatre within the Palace walls for the Nocturne concert series. Artists who have performed at Nocturne Live include Elton John, Noel Gallagher, Ennio Morricone, Gary Barlow, Nile Rodgers, Van Morrison, Gregory Porter, Elvis Costello, Jamie Cullum, Ludovico Einaudi and Max Richter.
Nocturne can be an all-day affair with VIP dining in the iconic State Rooms and Long Library, a stroll in the Palace’s vast grounds and lake or a waterside picnic. It can also be solely an evening concert for those who just want to hear their favourite live music and nothing else.
