Duran Duran at Castle Howard: Historic stately home announces first show in new series

Music icons Duran Duran have been unveiled as the first act to take part in a series of concerts at Yorkshire's Castle Howard.

The 80s legends will be playing an outdoor show at the historic stately home on June 17, 2022, in support of their new album FUTURE PAST.

The Grade I listed property was built on the site of a former castle, and has been home to the Carlisle branch of the Howard family for more than 300 years. It has appeared on-screen in the 1981 and 2008 adaptations of Brideshead Revisited, and more recently in the Netflix series Bridgerton.
