Simon Webbe set to headline Après Racing on Ladies Day at Newmarket Racecourses’ Moët and Chandon July Festival

Tuesday 5 June 2018

Newmarket Racecourses have appointed Blue star, Simon Webbe to host the Après Racing after-party following racing on Ladies Day, Thursday 12 July, the first day of the highly anticipated Moët & Chandon July Festival.

The three-day Moët & Chandon July Festival takes place from Thursday 12 - Saturday 14 July, where over 30,000 descend on Newmarket’s picturesque Adnams July Course to enjoy the sun, entertainment and of course, racing.

This Festival offers a fabulous day out, with the feel of an ultra-cool garden party and an array of colour from all the racegoers donning their finest attire.

As the official party following racing, Après Racing takes place on each day of the Festival; Ladies Day on the Thursday, Feel Good Friday the following day and Darley July Cup Day on the Saturday.

Simon Webbe, best known as for being a member of boy band Blue, is also a solo artist, theatre actor, TV personality and talented DJ. Simon will be taking to the decks approximately 30 minutes after the last race on the Thursday, to ensure all racegoers on Ladies Day finish a perfect summer’s evening by dancing the night away.

Simon Webbe said: “I’m so excited to headline after racing and see everyone up on the dance floor after the action on the track. It’s my first time performing a DJ set at Newmarket and I’m excited to play some of the biggest hits for the racing crowd to get them up and dancing after the horses head home!”

Ladies Day at the Moët & Chandon July Festival offers the chance for all the stylish female racegoers to compete for the accolade of being dubbed Best Dressed Lady and win a host of prizes worth thousands of pounds in The Style Awards, sponsored by The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel. Simon will be on course during the afternoon to help crown the Best Dressed Lady, before heading up onto the stage and manning the decks.
