Summer on the July Course at Newmarket is one of the most exciting spectacles in British horse racing – and not only because of the races. On seven Friday nights over the summer you can watch a thrilling race and then, twenty minutes later, watch a full concert by some of the most famous names in music.
The Adnams Newmarket Nights are now in their 28th year, and the 2014 series is set to be the biggest yet. As the horses thunder round the July Course, behind the scenes people will be preparing the main stage for a musical extravaganza, while acts like Dizzee Rascal, Tom Jones and the Beach Boys warm up in the green room.
The Newmarket Nights concerts are as follows:
Friday 20th June: 80s Here and Now
Friday 27th June: James Blunt
Friday 18th July: Beach Boys
Friday 25th July: T.B.C.
Friday 1st August: Tom Jones
Friday 8th August: Dizzee Rascal
Friday 15th August: Wet Wet Wet
And closing the summer season on the July Course at Newmarket in a special “Summer Saturday Live” event:
Saturday 23rd August: Peter Andre
Booking in advance is a must, as the concerts often sell out. Tickets are now on sale on the Newmarket Racecourse website, and you can also book by calling 0844 5793010.
