The 2018 Season at Pontefract Races may not start until Tuesday 3rd April, but tickets went on sale on 1st December with the Racecourse offering punters their best ever deals for those who book their tickets early.
Racegoers will get a massive 50% off the normal price of Premier Enclosure badges and Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure tickets when booking their tickets before the 29th January. The huge saving applies to all race meetings in 2018 with the exception of the popular 80s Night which has a slightly different pricing scale.
80s Night is fast becoming one of the most established race meetings in the Pontefract Racing Calendar and the popular event will be bigger and better than ever before in 2018. On Friday Evening 25th May, the Racecourse will welcome another huge act from the 80s when Belinda Carlisle takes to the stage.
If ever anyone has given Madonna a run for her money as the queen of the three-minute pop song, it’s Belinda Carlisle. Over the last three decades, she’s made the journey from Hollywood-based teen punk with the Go-Gos to the ultimate global pop icon with a serious of sophisticated, but instantly memorable pop-rock singles.
It was with “Heaven Is A Place On Earth” that Belinda achieved international success. It was a number one on both sides of the Atlantic and launched the start of an incredible solo career. With other huge hits such as “Circle In The Sand”, “(We Want) The Same Thing”, ‘Leave A Light On’, ‘Live Your Life Be Free’ and “Do You Feel Like I Feel?”, 80s Night is going to be a brilliant evening of good fun and nostalgia and lots of laughs!
With a tour of America planned over the Summer of 2018, it’s one of the only chances you’ll get to catch Belinda Carlisle in the UK in 2018!
The second of the Friday Night Music Night Series will be on Friday Eve 20th July when there will be another fantastic musical accompaniment to the brilliant racing on offer. The Bootleg Beatles are one of the world’s most famous Tribute Bands and they’ll be performing their stunning recreation of the greatest songbook of all time at Pontefract on this night. Tracing the Fab Four’s journey through the sixties, every tiny detail is meticulously covered from costumes to authentic period instruments.
Attracting critical acclaim wherever they perform, The Bootleg Beatles will perform their singalong set straight after the last race.
With two fantastic music acts booked, the 2018 season promises to promote Pontefract Races to a much wider audience. With tickets limited, Racegoers are encouraged to secure their place early.
