The singers have both performed at the event before, with Richie in the line-up last year and Astley taking to the Hampton Court Palace stage in 2017.

Now in its 28th year, the festival is a series of open-air concerts.

Artists perform in a 3,000-seat auditorium in Base Court, set against the backdrop of Henry VIII’s Tudor Palace.

Tickets are on general sale on November 22 at www.hamptoncourtpalacefestival.com.
