Will Young at Mercedes-Benz World Summer Concerts. Want to watch Will Young from the comfort of your roll-top bath? Or see Scouting for Girls and Escala whilst lounging in the hot tub of one of the UK’s most glamorous spa terraces? If so, this July gather your glad rags – leaving your Hunters at home – and check into the stunning Brooklands Hotel to enjoy ringside seats at the widely anticipated Mercedes-Benz World Summer Concerts. The high-gloss Brooklands Hotel, which overlooks Mercedes-Benz World, is the ideal setting for festival sophistication, which last year saw the likes of Elton John perform. And this year’s line-up is equally impressive:

The pop producer won’t be attending this year’s show – despite winning an award last year – because he hasn’t been nominated and doesn’t want to appear “desperate”.
Mark, 33, said: “I think it would be a bit weird to go. I performed last year and got an award for Best British Male and I worry that going when you’re not nominated is a bit tragic. It might look a bit desperate going if you’re not presenting or anything.
“Like, ‘I won last year, remember?’ It would be a bit like making me give my award over to someone else – awful.”
Mark isn’t familiar with the latest music of the nominees in the British Male Solo Artist category this year, which features Ian Brown, James Morrison, Paul Weller, Mike Skinner of the Streets and Will Young.
Mark added to Britain’s More magazine: “I think that a lot of people like Paul Weller, he’s a bit of an icon and someone you want to give it to. And I’m a fan of Ian Brown too, but the rest of the category I didn’t hear the albums, so I don’t know.”
