We are delighted to announce that we will welcome UB40 on 12 August 2017. UB40 – featuring original members Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue – will be bringing their inimitable blend of reggae and pop greatest hits to the newest Racecourse in the Uk. This will follow an exciting fixture or Arabian horse racing.

The famous band will take to the stage on what promises to be a balmy summer evening. The UB40 Grandslam Tour will run from 20 May until 12 August and will see the band perform at some of the greatest and most prestigious outdoor venues in the UK, culminating with the performance at Chelmsford City on 12 August.
