With the beginning of summer on the horizon, Newmarket Racecourses have announced that to celebrate the start of their live events this season, children will be able to see their favourite artists for FREE when accompanied by a paying adult at the family-friendly Summer Saturday Live open-air concerts.
Taking place during the afternoon and featuring a six race card prior to fantastic headline performances, Summer Saturday Live is a perfect day out for all of the family. Customers are able to secure their free child tickets when purchasing an adult ticket via http://www.thejockeyclublive.co.uk (ages 5-15 when purchasing a full price adult ticket – max two children per adult of 18 and over). Previously purchased child tickets will be eligible for a refund, while children aged 4 and under are entitled to free admission.
Gates will open at approx. midday, with headline artist onstage at approx. 6pm.
The Summer Saturday Live events bookend the outdoor music season at Newmarket Racecourses, with global superstar DEMI LOVATO kicking proceedings off on Saturday, 9th June for her first ever UK racecourse show.
The Grammy®-nominated, multi-platinum singer and songwriter released her sixth studio album ‘Tell Me You Love Me’ last year, with lead single ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ quickly being certified double-platinum. With a back catalogue featuring massive hits including ‘Heart Attack’, ‘Confident’, ‘Cool For The Summer’, ‘Give Your Heart A Break’ and timeless juggernaut ‘Skyscraper’, Demi has secured her place as being one of the most revered and respected vocalists of recent times.
Making sure the season ends with a bang, THE VAMPS will be starting the August Bank holiday weekend in style, headlining on 25th August. The Vamps are one of the most successful current British bands, having achieved a huge amount of success and acclaim all over the globe. Releasing their debut single ‘Can We Dance’ in 2013, they have since clocked up 5 top ten hits including ‘Wild Heart’, ‘Last Night’ and Somebody To You’. Their latest album, Night & Day, stormed straight into the Top 10 on the iTunes chart in over 20 countries including Argentina, Philippines, India and Australia and went to #1 in the UK official album charts with the lead single ‘All Night’ amassing over 300 million streams and going in to the top 25 in the world on Spotify.
Amy Starkey, Regional Director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said:
‘We are delighted to be able to add another Summer Saturday Live event to our racing and live music roster and hope that by offering free children’s tickets it will mean that more families will have the opportunity to come and enjoy a fabulous day of racing and entertainment this summer.’
