Madness are set to perform on Saturday, July 14.

Peter Taylor, director of Cuffe and Taylor, which presents the tour, said: "Madness are a Great British institution who remain one of the best live acts around.

“We worked with them at both Lytham Festival and Scarborough Open Air Theatre in 2017 and their show is a night of Madness-style mayhem with unbridled fun and songs that have become ingrained into the nation’s musical psyche over the last 30 years.

“We are now delighted to be presenting their four-date stately home tour and look forward to what will be a mad summer with these guys.

“All four venues are beautiful properties and to close the tour in the majestic surroundings of Alnwick Castle will be incredible.”
