Joining already announced THE CORRS to their summer season of live concerts, The Jockey Club Live presents An Evening at the Races are delighted to welcome JESS GLYNNE to Haydock Park Racecourse on 1st July.

First coming into the public consciousness as the vocalist on Clean Bandit’s Grammy Award winning and #1 hit ‘Rather Be’; pop sensation Jess Glynne has since become one of the biggest UK breakthrough acts of recent years. Her number-one charting debut album, ‘I Cry When I Laugh‘, has now turned double platinum in the UK, making it the highest selling debut album of the past year. She also became the second British female solo artist after Cheryl to have five number-one singles in the UK. With no signs of slowing down, 2016 is set to be a further massive year for Jess – later this month she’ll be performing as the prestigious Brit Awards and has been nominated for British Breakthrough Act, British Female Solo Artist and British Single for ‘Hold My Hand’.

Jess Glynne said:
‘It’s going to be great fun playing Haydock Park Racecourse on 1st July after the races. I love outdoor shows and can’t wait to share some summer evenings with my fans!’

Jess Glynne will also be donating a portion of her fee to an equine charity, of which The Jockey Club Live will match. Details to follow at a later date.

An Evening At The Races’ offers a value for money experience unlike any other this summer. Alongside a show-stopping headlining performance by some of the worlds biggest artists, the action kicks off earlier in the day with a six race card – giving fans the chance to witness powerful equine athletes who are stars in their own right, and enjoy the thrilling drama and spectacle of them racing for glory. Whether you fancy a flutter or a dance with friends and family the event is certain to be an odds on favourite for all.

Jason Fildes, Haydock Park General Manager, said:
‘We’re thrilled to announce another superb music act in Jess Glynne for our exciting summer of music at Haydock Park. Jess is one of the biggest UK breakthrough acts over the past few years and has a double platinum album so I’m sure she’ll give the Haydock crowd an electrifying performance after an evening of excellent racing on the track. With The Corrs recently announced to be playing on Saturday 18th June and another exciting act to be revealed shortly, we’re all relishing another excellent music portfolio at Haydock Park this year!’
