BRIT Award winner, cultural commentator, critically acclaimed director, actor, and musical maverick Ben Drew aka Plan B will be gracing the green for some of his first UK summer shows in 4 years, headlining Newmarket Racecourses on Friday 27th July!

His sophomore album, The Defamation Of Strickland Banks, achieved quadruple-platinum status, selling over 1.4 million copies in the UK alone, and hit the #1 album spot on release. It saw him win both a BRIT and three Ivor Novello Awards and includes the smash hit She Said.

Following this, his 2012 directorial debut (and accompanying album) iLLManors saw him breaking boundaries with his creative style of overlapping stories and interweaving rap-narrative, boldly addressing socio-political issues with his often brutal cultural commentary, seeing Ben nominated for his fifth BRIT Award, nominated for his first Mercury Music prize, and once again hitting #1 in the UK album chart.

He will be releasing his eagerly anticipated fourth album Heaven Before All Hell Breaks Loose on 14th April.


** CONCERT TIMINGS**

The concert will start approximately 20 minutes after the last race and Plan B 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.


**IMPORTANT INFORMATION**

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.
