A Summer of great racing followed by a fusion of live music is on offer over eight separate dates at Lingfield Park Resort – with the first event certain to appeal to would-be rock stars.
As the horses are led away to the stables for the night on Saturday June 1st, visitors to the Surrey racecourse will be invited to celebrate all things ‘Queen’ as a live tribute band takes to the stage for a giant Bohemian Rhapsody-themed Massaoke.
‘This is taking the concept of singing along at a gig to a whole new level,’ commented Kieran Gallagher, Executive Director of Lingfield Park Resort.
‘As the band sing and play all the best Queen hits on the stage, a giant screen will show the lyrics to the song, allowing the audience to be a complete part of the show.
‘This is karaoke at its best!’
The stage for the summer gigs – all which follow an evening of racing – will this year be on the Grandstand side of the racecourse, allowing more people than ever to enjoy the live themed entertainment.
Just a week after the giant sing-along, JD King’s Elvis The Legend and his big band will take to the stage at the racecourse on June 8th. This Viva Las Vegas-themed night will appeal to all Elvis fans as one of his most popular impersonators brings to life some magic from Memphis.
With a sell-out Madness show on June 22nd, the mood will change for the final Saturday in June (29th) when the popular Take That Experience – regulars at Lingfield Park – entertain the race-goers.
‘We have tried to choose acts that appeal to our hugely eclectic audience,’ added Mr Gallagher. ‘Whether your choice of music is rock, pop or the real thing, we have something for everyone at Lingfield this summer.’
August sees a night to celebrate the roaring 1920’s as Gentlemen’s Day features the legendary Cheaky Blinders taking to the stage after racing. With a Best-Dressed Gents competition offering great prizes, this is sure to be a night to ‘Get you glad rags on’!
Jess Glynne will be increasing the tempo on August 10th, with tickets selling out fast for this four-time Brit nominee star.
The season will end on August 31st with a fun School Reunion night featuring a 90’s Revival band. Dig out those school ties and pleated skirts and celebrate the sounds of Madonna, Whitney Houston and U2 as you take a trip down memory lane.
