Rick Astley’s Newmarket Nights show rescheduled
With the planned reopening of large-scale events scheduled for June 21, as a precautionary measure, Rick Astley’s Newmarket Nights gig will be moving from Friday, June 25 to Friday, August 13.
Tickets will be automatically transferred to the new August date, however ticket holders will also be contacted directly and given the option of requesting a full refund or e-voucher to attend another music night or racing fixture of their choice.
Sophie Able, general manager, Newmarket Racecourses, said: "Don’t worry Newmarket, we were never going to give up on bringing Rick Astley to the July Course this summer!
"Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty surrounding the roadmap and easing of Covid-19 restrictions, we are moving his show to a little later in the summer - but fans can be sure that this will be a fantastic, uplifting night of racing and music."
Tickets are on sale now via thejockeyclublive.co.uk. Tickets are priced starting at £30.24 (inclusive of transaction fees). All T&C’s are available on newmarket.thejockeyclub.co.uk.
