Madness will play at Ragley Hall in July 2018.

SKA legends Madness will play at Ragley Hall this summer.

The open-air gig on Friday, 13th July, is part of a four-date tour of UK stately homes.

Suggs and co will also play at Englefield House in Reading, Euston Park in Thetford and Alnwick Castle in Northumberland.

Tickets for the tour go on general sale at 9am on Friday.

“All four venues are beautiful properties and to include a date in the wonderful and grand surroundings of Ragley Hall will be incredible,” said Peter Taylor, director of promoters, Cuffe and Taylor.

Suggs, Mike ‘Barzo’ Barson, Chris ‘Chrissy Boy’ Foreman, Lee ‘Kix’ Thompson, Daniel ‘Woody’ Woodgate and Mark ‘Bedders’ Bedford have played to millions of fans over the last 40 years.

They formed in Camden in 1976 and since then have chalked up 15 UK top ten singles.

Il Divo will also play a gig at Ragley Hall this summer, the three-day Camper Calling festival is due to return, and Classic Ibiza will host what is being billed as ‘Warwickshire’s biggest dance party of the summer’ with The Urban Soul Orchestra playing classic Ibiza anthems, with live DJ and vocalists.
