The band, made up of former X-Factor contestants Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall, will take to the stage within the castle’s country park on Thursday, July 13.

The show is part of the band's Summer Shout Out tour. Tickets are available from 9am on Thursday, January 19.

I am absolutely thrilled that we will stage another brilliant concert with world-class artists in the beautiful country park of Caldicot Castle this summer.

We look forward to welcoming thousands of visitors, as well as residents, of all ages to Monmouthshire again.
