“Having played a brilliant show at Newmarket Nights back in 2014, we’re excited to be welcoming James Arthur and his fantastic live show to the racecourse again next year. 2024 is shaping up to be our best year yet and we can’t wait to reveal who else we have in store for next summer…”

James Arthur said:
“Playing live is one of my absolute favourite things to do, and it’s made even better when it’s outdoor shows in the summer evenings. I had an amazing time at Newmarket Nights 10 years ago and can’t wait to see you all on Friday 2nd August!”
