Experience Thriller Live


The glitz and glamour of the West End is coming to Newmarket on Friday 19th July


Following the success of The Jacksons in 2017, and Magic of Motown in 2018, The Jockey Club Live and Newmarket Racecourses are thrilled to announce the first show for the 2019 Newmarket Nights season; direct from London's West End - THRILLER LIVE.

After opening in the Lyric Theatre in London on 2 January 2009 to rave reviews, Thriller Live has since embarked on several world tours, played over 6500 shows globally to over 5 million fans, visited over 30 countries. 


We're excited to announce we have added a Silent Disco, Classic Arcade Games, a Hair & Make Up Stand and a Retro Photo Booth for Thriller Live on 19 July!


Not only can you experience the glitz and glamour of the West End as the hit musical Thriller Live comes to the races... you'll also be transported back to your favourite era through free activities throughout the day.


You can try your hand at beating your friends at Pacman or Space Invaders in the retro Arcade area, dress up in the photo booth and a capture a memento of the day, and dance the night away in the silent disco room with a DJ and three channels to listen to featuring 70s, 80s, and 90s music.


To help transport you back to your favourite era, there will also be two make up artists and hair stylists offering makeovers (or even zombie make-up from the Thriller video!) with prizes on the day for best fancy dress.

All experiences are free of charge to guests and will run throughout the day until Thriller Live takes the stage.
