IT’S one of south Cumbria’s biggest events of the year and has previously featured the likes of Boyzone, Sir Tom Jones, Simply Red and Jools Holland.
Now, final preparations are in full swing as Cartmel Racecourse gets ready to host its summer concert 2019.
This year will showcase an unforgettable afternoon of live entertainment on Friday, June 28.
Headlining on stage this year will be one of the most iconic pop stars in global music history; Sir Cliff Richard, with the audience treated to one of just three outdoor performances of his Diamond Encore tour in the UK this year.
In support will be chart-topping singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor with her host of top ten hits including Murder on the Dancefloor, Groovejet and Music Gets the Best of Me.
In addition, The Fly Boys will bring a touch of sensational swing to the stage with their unique blend of vintage style and contemporary hits.
The hattrick of live performances will get underway following a thrill-packed afternoon of horse racing at one of the UK’s most unique courses.
Holker Racing and Leisure managing director Steve Cooper said this year’s concert offered a once in a lifetime chance to enjoy performances from unique artists in the beautiful surroundings of the Cartmel Valley.
“Our summer concert has proven extremely popular in recent years with visitors enjoying the racing followed by live music from some of Britain’s best performers.
“This year we are really pulling out all the stops with Sir Cliff Richard, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and The Fly Boys taking to the stage.
“It’s taken a lot of planning and hard work, but now we’re looking forward to everything the day has in store.”
