A day at Newmarket Racecourses is not just about the horses and a flutter this summer, with some of the biggest names in music taking to the stage.
The entertainment – which follows an afternoon of racing – kicks off with James Arthur on May 31, before Adnams Newmarket Nights return in June for their 28th season.
Visitors can look forward to the following acts at the Suffolk venue:
• 20th June (Here And Now);
• 27th June (James Blunt);
• 18th July (The Beach Boys);
• 25th July (to be announced);
• 1st August (Tom Jones);
• 8th August (Dizzee Rascal);
• 15th August (Wet Wet Wet).
The season then closes with another Saturday show, this time from Peter Andre on August 23.
Amy Starkey, regional director east of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “As befits The July Course every summer, we have a fantastic line-up of musical entertainment for the summer of 2014. Tickets are being purchased in advance in big numbers and we are looking forward to nine great days and evening when flat racing comes together with music from ‘Jockey Club Live’.”
Adult prices are £29, £21 and £15 respectively for ‘Summer Saturdays Live’, as well as the opening ‘Here And Now’ Adnams Newmarket Night.
