Madness will perform live at Haydock next Friday evening (July 6th 2012), following an action packed card of spectacular racing which is due to begin at 6.45pm.

JLS, The Scissor Sisters and Sir Tom Jones have headlined at the premier track over the past few years, with such music acts successfully continuing to attract new and particularly younger people to British racecourses.

Yet it will be Suggs and Co. who will take centre stage this time around, as the iconic band, fresh from performing on top of Buckingham Palace earlier in the month, plays some of its all-time classics.

Racing also takes place on Thursday afternoon, but the three-day meeting builds up to Saturday’s Old Newton Cup, one of the most historical and prestigious races of the flat racing calendar. The Lancashire Oaks takes place the same afternoon and is sure to attract a top-class field, as always.

Tickets for Friday are available from just £30. On Thursday and Saturday, prices start from as little as £13, with group discounts available.

Tickets are still on sale, but are selling fast so hurry to avoid disappointment. You can purchase them here:


Steps will perform at Haydock on July 21st, also an evening fixture.
