THE Beach Boys have been announced to play at the glamorous Henley Festival this summer.

The band will headline the opening night of the five day festival on Wednesday, July 10 with tickets starting at £80.

Madness will perform on the Friday, with tickets from £90, and Paloma Faith on the last night, Sunday, July 14 with tickets starting from £55.

The Thursday night is yet to be announced and there will be a special James Bond Themed Gala Evening on the Saturday (tickets from £65).

There are just 5,000 tickets available each night at this black tie only event set on the banks of the river Thames in Henley.

Gill Mitchell, CEO of The Henley Festival, said:"Many people do not realise that we are a charity and always have been. Over the last 30 years, the Henley Festival has donated more than £2m to music and art projects in the Thames Valley.

"With this in mind, it gives us great pleasure, to announce such an exciting and diverse musical line up for this year’s Henley Festival. We are extremely proud to be playing host to some of the most globally recognised artists at our summer party and look forward to seeing you there."

Tickets go on sale to friends of the festival from at 10am on Monday and on general sale soon.
