Sophie Able, General Manager of Newmarket Racecourses, said

“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…”

Jack Pryor, General Manager, Market Rasen Racecourse, said

“Following the return of live music to the racecourse last year with the HUGE show from Tom Grennan, we can’t wait to welcome another massive British star to Market Rasen.
