For 10 nights, a stellar line-up will be taking to the Tudor Base Court in Henry VIII’s former abode (below) – come rain or shine, so bring a poncho. Stars include Jools Holland, Imelda May, Lisa Stansfield and Cliff Richard.

From the folks behind the Prohibition and Blitz parties, there’ll be cabaret, fizz, a string quartet, fizz, a deck-top bar and, yes, more fizz. Glam it up and hop aboard.  

£20, June 22. From 8pm TBC
