Tom Jones Music & Racing - Cartmel Racecourse

Tom Jones Music & Racing

Picnic Day

Tom Jones Music & Racing, Friday 30th June 2017

Race Day Summary

It's not unusual to have a great day at Cartmel races - but now you can have a great afternoon at the races followed by a fantastic concert from Tom Jones in the evening too...
Yes, it's true. Sir Tom Jones is coming to Cartmel to play on the big stage in the centre of the course during the evening after racing. Exact times are still to be confirmed, but racing is expected to take place between 2.00pm and 5.45pm, with music starting roughly 45 minutes after the end of racing.
Tickets can be purchased online from 9.00am on Monday 6th March. Advance tickets cost £45 each. If there are any tickets remaining on the day of the event, these will be available at £55 each.
As usual, we shall also be offering camping in the racecourse camp-site. There is limited space and while we still have space for tents, the spaces licensed for campervans and caravans have now sold out. Each camping package includes event tickets as well as camping for two nights - on Thursday 29th June and Friday night 30th June. We recommend booking online as the limited number of phones in our small office are likely to be engaged for some time on Monday.
It's not unusual to bring a picnic... but please be aware that we shall be discouraging anyone from carrying glass within the concert arena - which will be located in the Course Enclosure.
Similarly, we usually welcome dogs at Cartmel and they will be allowed to come with you on the concert day - but they will not be permitted in the front half of the concert arena, where the crowd will be dense and unsuitable for dogs.


Open from: 11.00am

First Race: 2.00pm (TBC)
Last Race: 5.10pm (TBC)
