EVENING FLAT RACING & MUSIC FROM Madness

 

Join us for a thrilling evening of racing followed by live music from Madness on Wednesday 24th July.

 

For our music nights the racecourse is open as one enclosure with a relaxed dress code. Due to high temperatures, smart shorts are also permitted for Hospitality guests and the Members Lounge, while men are still required to wear collared shirts and we encourage ladies to dress for a special occasion.

Combining the genres of ska, reggae, Motown, rock’n’roll, and classic pop, Madness have become one of the music industry’s best loved British bands. Fronted by the charismatic Suggs, Madness’ ability to write songs that sparkle with the stuff of British life has lead them to have many hits including ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘It Must Be Love’, ‘Driving In My Car’, ‘Our House’ and the 1982 #1 ‘House of Fun’. They are songs that have left their mark on British pop culture; their spirit endures in the music of Blur, the Streets, Kaiser Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys and many more.

 

In the last few years they have also delivered historic performances at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert, and at the 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony cementing them as one of the nation’s most successful bands. Don't miss your opportunity to see them perform live!

Please note: If you require complimentary carer tickets contact Sandown Park before purchasing your tickets on 01372 464348. The viewing platform for Madness is now fully booked but you can get in touch to discuss other options we may be able to offer. For more information visit venue accessibility

All money raised on the day will go to three wonderful charities:

 

Carers Trust

Carers Trust is the UK's largest charity for carers. They work to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems.

 

Racing Welfare

Racing Welfare is the only charity that supports all people who work in racing – including stud, stable and racecourse staff, alongside those working in associated professions – from their recruitment right through into retirement.

 

Rainbow Trust

Rainbow Trust supports families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.  By providing bespoke practical and emotional support we help families manage when their world is turned upside down.
