One of the biggest selling artists of the decade, George Ezra will be headlining Newmarket Racecourses on Friday 17th August 2018!
His debut album Wanted On Voyage is certified 4x platinum in the UK, gold in the US, and was amongst the top 10 biggest selling artist albums in this country in both 2014 and 2015, reaching #1 in the Official UK Chart and spending 122 weeks in the chart overall.
In little more than 18 months Ezra went from virtual unknown to one of the international breakthrough artists of recent times: taking in a top 10 album in 10 countries; three sold-out UK tours; nominations for four BRITs, one BBC Music Award and an Ivor Novello. He’ll be releasing his highly anticipated sophomore album Staying At Tamara’s, on 23rd March 2018.
** CONCERT TIMINGS**
The concert will start approximately 20 minutes after the last race and George Ezra will be on stage for approximately 90 minutes. Race times are subject to change so please double check on the day of your visit for most accurate timings.
As Newmarket Nights are our Friday evening racing plus music events with the artist taking to the stage at any time from 8pm, our recommendation is that Newmarket Nights are not suitable for children under 16.
Whilst we recommend that these events are not suitable for children under 16, if you do wish to bring them as part of your party, at your discretion, they can attend as long as they possess a valid ticket to gain entry and there is a responsible adult of 18 and above to every two children under 16.
We take every precaution to try and ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time at all of our events. If you do decide to bring a child under 16, we would suggest against taking them into the most densely crowded areas, which includes the large area in front of the stage.
Newmarket Racecourses have a range of family-friendly events throughout the summer, including our popular Summer Saturday’s series whereby children under 18 are permitted free. Our racing plus music afternoon events, Summer Saturday Live, are our family friendly events of this type which have an allocation of concession tickets for children available.
It is your responsibility to check the suitability of an event for any children in your party regardless of official age restrictions, this includes considering the type of audience the event is likely to attract and whether such an audience is a suitable environment for children in your party. Refunds will not be issued if any aspect of an event, including the behaviour of other audience members, causes offence to you or any children on whose behalf you have purchased tickets.
We do not recommend subjecting babies and young children to loud music. Children are recommended to wear hearing protection if you decide to bring them. A concert environment is not suitable for very young children.
Please see our frequently asked questions during our music events if you have any enquiries.
