Due to the ongoing situation with regards to COVID 19 we have been working away behind the scenes to continue to deliver our Live After Racing schedule of events for Summer 2021.

In response to the Government’s recent release of their road map and as large scale events are not permitted until after the 21st of June the UB40 Live After Racing event at Lingfield Park Resort scheduled for Saturday 12th June can no longer take place.

We are however delighted to announce that this event will now be rescheduled to Sunday 22st August.

Everyone at Live After Racing would like to thank UB40 and their team for their help and support under these difficult circumstance and are very much looking forward to what is sure to be a night to remember.

Tickets for the original date remain valid and refunds are available from point of purchase should customers be unable to attend the rearranged date.

On Sunday 22nd August 2021, the totemic reggae icons will be headlining a very special show held at Worcester Racecourse.

Proving that you don’t have to be a Queen fan to enjoy “a day at the races” and great music simultaneously, this unique show will invite audiences to enjoy an entire day of racing at one of the UK’s most prestigious arenas, with the added bonus of a full UB40 set late into the evening.

Distilling a potent mix of progressive attitudes, a diverse ethnic make-up, and pure pop panache, UB40 have sealed their status as one of the best-loved British bands of all time. Since their inception in Birmingham in 1978, the reggae-pop mainstays have scored more than 50 singles in the UK Singles Chart and achieved considerable international success with over 100 million record sales worldwide. In their glittering career, the band have been named the Best British Group at the Brit Awards, earned nominations for the Best Reggae Album four times at the Grammy’s, and in the 1980s lay claim to spending a record-breaking  214 weeks on the UK singles charts over the course of the decade. Fighting fitter than ever, in celebration of their 40th Anniversary the band released their critically acclaimed new album ‘For The Many’ which was hailed as “close to vintage work from a group who have regained their appetite” (The Arts Desk).

Few bands could be better suited to long summer evening shows than UB40. So no matter how your luck may fare at the races earlier in the day, with global hits like “Food For Thought”, “Red Red Wine”, “Can’t Help Falling in Love”, “I Got You Babe”, “One In Ten”, “Many Rivers To Cross” and more at their fingertips, UB40’s headline set at Worcester Racecourse next summer is guaranteed to be an absolute winner.
