York races are a perennial favourite for hen do groups visiting the city, and we have many revellers come to us for the best hen party accommodation York has to offer as part of their visit.

When the races hold special events, large group accommodation in York can be hard to find, so if you fancy combining a day of watching racing with some brilliant music entertainment, get your enquiries in for Summer Music Saturdays at the course.

The first headliner has now been announced, with singer Paloma Faith taking to the stage on the 30th June. She has chosen the racecourse as a part of her tour for her number one album ‘The Architect’, which is on track to make her the first female artist to have four double platinum albums in a row.

Announcing the date, Paloma said: “I'm really looking forward to playing York Racecourse next summer, it'll be one of the first chances I'll get to play tracks from The Architect in the sunshine. I love a day out at the races too so can't wait for it,” reports Conference and Events York.

Tickets are on sale now at yorkracecourse.co.uk and of course also includes access to the seven thoroughbred racing contests held on the course.

If you can’t make that weekend, why not wait until the 27th and 28th of July, which will also have top music acts playing. They will be announced in due course, but are sure to be worth booking your visit now.
