Will Young to headline Betfred Ladies Day

Booked by the LHG artist team

Newbury Racecourse announced today that one of Britain's favourite artists, Will Young, will be performing live after racing on Betfred Ladies Day on Saturday, August 13, 2016.

Having grown up locally to Newbury in Hungerford, Will Young shot to fame as the inaugural winner of Pop Idol. His first single 'Evergreen/Anything Is Possible', released shortly after, became the fastest selling debut single in the UK.

In the years that followed, albums From Now On (2002), Friday's Child (2003) 'Keep On' (2005) and 'Let It Go' (2008) Echoes (2011) and 85% Proof (2015) all topped the UK charts. With two BRIT Awards to his name Will Young has become one of the UK's leading artists.

Julian Thick, Newbury's Chief Executive, said: "We are delighted to announce that Will Young will be performing after a day of high quality racing action on Betfred Ladies Day. As a multi-award winning artist with a host of number one albums to his name we're expecting a great crowd to see him round off one of the highlights of our summer season."

Will Young will be performing after Betfred Ladies Day which will be held once again in support of Breast Cancer Care. With the ever popular 'Most Stylish Racegoer' competition also taking place it is sure to be a day to remember.
