Newmarket Nights is set to return for 2022 and five huge acts have already announced.

The events, running at Newmarket Racecourse throughout the summer, allow people to dress up for an evening of racing, followed by some music from big names.

Last year Sir Tom Jones kicked off the 2021 Newmarket Nights season with a barnstorming performance, before Olly Murs took to the stage a week later for his gig.

Five acts have already been announced as coming to the racecourse this year, but a spokesman for Newmarket Nights said more acts were due to be announced soon.

Here the acts that we know are coming to the racecourse this year:

Paloma Faith

Double platinum and BRIT award-winning artist Paloma Faith will be taking to the stage at Newmarket Racecourse as part of her The Age of Optimism tour this summer.

Gig-goers should expect incredible vocals, fantastic outfits and a spectacular production after the evening racing. 

Faith's concert will come almost four years to the day since she headlined Newmarket Nights at the racecourse back in 2018.
