An act that has already sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, will perform after racing on Friday evening 26 July, as Tears For Fears will be on stage

Less than 24 hours later, after an afternoon of high class racing, James Arthur will take to the stage..

A pop powerhouse, with a string of hits including the Number Ones, "Impossible"  & "Say you won't let go".

No booking fees and free car parking mean that the racecourse compares favourably to other summer venues.

On the track there is “black type” action on both cards, with Friday evening headed by the European Breeders’ Fund Lyric Stakes, a Listed contest for fillies. Saturday offers both the Group Two Sky Bet York Stakes worth £120,000 and the Sky Bet Dash, a ticklish sprint handicap to find the winner, made yet tougher this season by the new twenty-two bay stalls.

These combined events are special in lots of ways, with racegoers reminded that there is a £10 for children aged five years and older, as set out below;
- Children aged 5-15 need a special £10 ticket, and must be accompanied by an adult: maximum two children per adult.
- Racegoers aged 16 and 17 years old need special £10 paid for admission, however they do not need to be accompanied (please call 01904 620911 to book).
- Limited number of child tickets available, once this allocation has been reached the full adult price ticket applies.
