Global superstar and chart record holder Jess Glynne is returning to headline Scarborough Open Air Theatre this summer.

Jess – the only ever British female solo artist to score seven UK Number One singles – performed an unforgettable gig at the Yorkshire coast venue in 2017.

And in an announcement that will delight her legions of fans, Jess is bringing her stunning live show to Britain’s largest open-air arena again on Sunday July 21. 

Tickets go on sale on Friday at 9am via www.scarboroughopenairtheatre

It has been an incredible five years for the North London singer-songwriter whose powerhouse vocals and fearless delivery has captured so many under its spell.

Smashing her way into the nation’s consciousness as the vocalist on Clean Bandit’s 2014 Grammy Award-winning ‘Rather Be’ and Route 94’s ‘My Love’, Jess has since become one of the UK’s biggest acts.

Her 2015 debut album ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ was one of the defining British pop records of the era. Hit singles ‘Hold My Hand’ and ‘Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself’ spawned 12 million worldwide singles sales, 39 weeks on the UK Top 10, 2.5 billion Spotify streams as well as BRIT, MTV, Ivor Novello, MOBO and Q award nominations.

2018’s much awaited follow-up ‘Always In Between’ – which includes the anthems ‘I’ll Be There’ and ‘All I Am’ – again took the charts by storm and was catapulted straight to Number One.

Throughout her ever-developing journey as an artist, Jess has built a huge fanbase and her live shows are magical and mesmerising events that simply can’t be missed.
