It's not unusual to have a great day at Cartmel races - but now you can have a great afternoon at the races followed by a fantastic concert from Tom Jones in the evening too...
Yes, it's true. Sir Tom Jones is coming to Cartmel to play on the big stage in the centre of the course during the evening after racing. The first race will take place at 2.20pm and the final race starts at 5.20pm with the musical entertainment starting roughly 45 minutes after the racing activities are completed.
First up on the stage will be Into The Ark - the group mentored by Sir Tom Jones during the latest series of The Voice. And then (get knickers ready to throw) it will be time for Sir Tom Jones. The concert will conclude at around 8.30pm and we recommend that any taxis are booked for 9.00pm or after.
Tickets can be purchased online now. Advance tickets cost £45 each. If there are any tickets remaining on the day of the event, these will be available at £55 each.
As usual, we shall also be offering camping in the racecourse camp-site. There is limited space and while we still have space for tents, the spaces licensed for campervans and caravans have now sold out. Each camping package includes event tickets as well as camping for two nights - on Thursday 29th June and Friday night 30th June. We recommend booking online.
It's not unusual to bring a picnic... but please be aware that we shall be discouraging anyone from carrying glass within the concert arena - which will be located in the Course Enclosure.
Similarly, we usually welcome dogs at Cartmel and they will be allowed to come with you on the concert day - but they will not be permitted in the front half of the concert arena, where the crowd will be dense and unsuitable for dogs.
