Since the release of the UK Government roadmap, The Jockey Club Live has been working hard behind the scenes regarding the return of live music this summer at Newmarket Racecourses.
With the planned reopening of large-scale events scheduled for the 21st June, we are unfortunately having to reschedule The Script show from the 18th June to Friday 15th July 2022. Pete Tong and The Heritage Orchestra’s Ibiza Classics show will also be postponed to 2022, now taking place on Friday 12th August.
Pete Tong and The Heritage Orchestra’s ground-breaking event includes a very large production involving a 65-piece orchestra, taking weeks of rehearsals to perfect the flawless show. Due to the scale of the concert, the safety of the crew and musicians is paramount and due to the logistics involved with rehearsing this type of concert, Pete Tong & The Heritage Orchestra are rescheduling all of their summer 2021 dates, which unfortunately affects the Newmarket Racecourses show.
Sophie Abie, General Manager, Newmarket said:
“We're sorry to announce that due to the challenges presented by preparing for this summer’s dates during the current lockdown as well as restrictions in place before 21st June, both Pete Tong & The Heritage Orchestra and The Script’s headline concerts at Newmarket Racecourses are being postponed and rescheduled for summer 2022. We know fans will be disappointed that these concerts are not taking place this year, but we can promise it will be worth the wait!”
Tickets will automatically be transferred to the new dates, however ticket holders will be contacted and given the option of requesting a full refund or e-voucher to attend a future music night or racing fixture of their choice.
