Arena Racing Company (ARC) has announced a series of music events this spring and summer that includes gigs at Lingfield Park, Royal Windsor and Fontwell Park.

The initiative comprises a mix of DJs that includes Jo Whiley, Sara Cox and Fearne Cotton and bands such as Madness, UB40 and Slade as part of the group of musicians who will perform at a total of 10 ARC tracks between May 1 and September 25.

The London and south east shows comprise solo entertainment from Whiley, who will perform at Fontwell Park on May 1 and at Royal Windsor on August 29. Radio presenter Cox will appear at Lingfield Park on June 18, while BBC Radio 1’s Cotton has a one-off show at Royal Windsor on June 1.

Mark Spincer, assistant director of operations at ARC said, “I’m really pleased to have secured such a fabulous line-up of really popular bands and DJs.

“I think the mix of entertainment across the group will appeal to both established racegoers and potential new customers who are looking for a day or night out with a difference.

“Tickets are already selling and I would urge people to plan ahead and book in advance to avoid disappointment as some of these may be sell-out events.”

Full details and booking information for all the music nights can be found on racecourse websites.
