Deacon Blue Live After Racing at Newcastle Racecourse on Friday 29 June, as part of ARC Music Live

Stobart Energy Raceday with Deacon Blue Live After Racing

Fri 29 Jun

The Stobart Group Festival Of Racing continues with the Stobart Energy Raceday with Deacon Blue Live After Racing, the perfect Friday evening event to start your weekend!

The evening features a host of excellent and competitive races. Expect a blisteringly quick affair when the sprinters take on the Gosforth Park Cup over five furlongs, won last year by Line Of Reason in spectacular fashion. Then later on the card, we stage the recently upgraded Group 3 Hoppings Stakes for top class fillies.

Following racing Deacon Blue will take to the stage to perform a full set, including their big hits "Dignity" and "Real Gone Kid". All tickets offer admission to the racing and Deacon Blue concert.

For all visitors who do not wish to stay for the Deacon Blue concert, please leave the venue prior to Deacon Blue beginning their set, 20 minutes after the last race. You will be issued a voucher to attend a future Category C fixture upon leaving the venue.

This is a Category B fixture
