Summer Music Saturday with Olly Murs

Summer Music Saturday with Olly Murs


Olly Murs will star on Saturday 1 July, a brand new York raceday, as he plays after the seven race card supported by Sunbets.

Olly Murs has proved so popular that the capacity on Stand Side (County Stand and Grandstand and Paddock combined) has now been reached. Consequently, we regret to advise that, with the exception of hospitality places, tickets & badges for these areas are no longer available for purchase.

There are places available in both the Ebor and Voltigeur Restaurants; these offer the chance for a real treat; including admission, a reserved viewing area for racing (that also offers an elevated, if long distance view of the music stage) as well as gourmet food for the day. The restaurant prices start from £199+vat to include morning coffee, the grand buffet & carvery as well as afternoon tea. Drinks are available to purchase in the Voltigeur Restaurant and are included in the Ebor Restaurant price of £250+vat. Call 01904 638971 for details.

The Course Enclosure (called the Picnic Enclosure by some) in the middle of the racecourse is only open to sales once gates open (11.15am) on the raceday, so there is still the opportunity to be part of the day of racing and music by using this area. Course Enclosure will be part of the atmosphere and offers an angled view of the stage (and great view of the racing) moreover the sound system is being improved so it will reach this area. The racecourse wants to be clear to potential customers that it will not be the same experience as being in front of the stage as part of the Stands Side (County Stand & Grandstand and Paddock) crowd. Admission to the Course Enclosure is £10 for adults, £8 for over 65s and free of charge to accompanied under 18s. It can only be purchased when the gates open at 11.15am on Saturday. The capacity of Course Enclosure is in the thousands and it has not reached this capacity on previous Music events, however the advice, as always, is to arrive early. Please note, transfers to Stands Side will not be possible on 1 July.

Can’t make this date? Music sensation, Jess Glynne is to play on Music Showcase Evening, Friday 28 July. One of the best known all girl bands of all time, All Saints, will be on that same stage a little under twenty four hours on Music Showcase Saturday, 29 July.
