Tickets are still available for the star-studded line-up at the Newmarket Nights live music events this summer. The annual string of concerts at Newmarket’s famous racecourse will see some of pop’s biggest name perform in the town on the Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border.
Last year, the great Sir Tom Jones and August Summer Saturday – Newmarket crowd-pleaser Olly Murs were among those to appear at Newmarket racecourse and this year’s line-up certainly lives up to the high standard set in 2021. This year sees an array of chart-topping artists put on a show in the town.
Rudimental, who made their Newmarket Nights debut in 2019, will be the first act to perform this summer. The drum and bass band will take to the stage on June 24.

Power Outages Remain In Parts Of Aurora, Newmarket Following Storm
Parts of Aurora and Newmarket continue to deal with power outages due to the storm that swept through the area on Saturday.
One to 100 customers are without power, according to the Alectra Utilities website.
Alectra expects power to be restored in some parts by 5 p.M. Tuesday, while other areas could be without electricity until early Wednesday morning.
There are some areas where there is no estimated time on when power will return.
Alectra’s website shows crews are dealing with several issues, including equipment failure, trees in contact with power lines and high winds or rain affecting PowerStream’s system.
As of 10 a.M. Sunday, about 24,000 customers in Vaughan, Markham, Richmond Hill, Aurora, Brampton, Mississauga, Hamilton, and the Guelph area were without power.
Hydro One said Tuesday that crews had restored power for more than 479 500 throughout Ontario affected by Saturday’s storm.
“Our hearts remain with our customers who have been devastated by this storm. I’ve heard from crews on the ground that this is the most destructive storm in recent memory, and you have our commitment that we will not stop until every last customer is restored,” said Jason Fitzsimmons, Hydro One’s chief customer care and corporate affairs officer.
“We thank you for your continued patience and support as our crews work alongside our utility partners and contractors, who have come from near and far to assist with restoration efforts.”
Further information regarding outages in Newmarket and Aurora can be found on the Alectra website.

David went through the card at Worcester, finding it largely without appeal, but AGENT SAONOIS took his eye in the Neu-Servo Industrial Gearbox Repair Novices’ Handicap Hurdle, and while I’m often horrified when he asks me to look at one of these 0-100 handicaps, I was pleasantly surprised by this. Trained by Neil Mulholland who is 10/55 over hurdles for the new season, he looks capable of improvement, and looks worth an interest at the prices.
Agent Saonois showed a little on the Flat, achieving a rating of 60 in four runs, having started out in bumpers. He’s looked of similar ability in his first three hurdles starts but he did fare a bit better on his first handicap start over this C&D under today’s jockey, finishing a 6½-length fourth to Red Maple, staying on at one pace after the last.
A poor run followed at Newton Abbot, but he seemed to scare himself at the first, making a bad mistake, and he never looked happy. Perhaps the new white-trimmed hurdles there were to blame, he wouldn’t be the first horse to baulk at them and he won’t be the last (which does raise questions about the switch), so it’s best to put a line through that run.
He’s back over the brush hurdles today, which clearly hold no fears, and any rain that might fall at Worcester won’t do his chances any harm. Hugh Nugent is back on board and he is building up a good record for the yard with four wins from 18 rides when market expectations have been for less than half that total.
Beat The Heat is up 9lb for winning a weak race at Fontwell, but the key to him is the trip, as he hadn’t been getting home over further. He did run below form over this type of obstacle at Southwell last month, however, and is opposable for that reason, rather than in handicapping terms.6.15 Pontefract
The Sky Bet Sunday Series 3-y-o Mile Handicap looks a decent race for the track, with plenty arriving in form.
Subjective Value is the likeliest front runner as he always goes forward and is drawn in the inside stall, but he wears severe headgear for the first time, and that is not always conducive to a good break, as Karl Burke found with BULLET FORCE at Chester last time when that horse was fitted with a visor. A stuttering start saw him poorly positioned and he did really well to finish a close third to Outgate in a very competitive handicap.
Bullet Force now wears blinkers, but the headgear will no longer be a shock to the system, and I’d expect him to be into his stride better this time given he had made the running at York on his penultimate start. This track is sure to suit the son of Cable Bay, and he finds himself in a less competitive race now. If he can hold his pitch into the turn, then he will take the beating.
