Video: Watch Lawson perform at Newmarket Nights

The Saturdays were not the only band to take to the stage at Newmarket Nights on Saturday with boyband Lawson also making an appearance.

Twenty four hours before both The Saturdays and Lawson took to the stage 5,000 people basked in the sunshine for the track’s opening fixture which was staged in association with the Countryside Alliance.

“A lot of people stayed after racing to watch Lawson and The Saturdays and it seemed like there was a really great atmosphere,” said Amy Starkey, Newmarket Racecourses Managing Director.

“It was a great day and a scene setter of what is to come at the track throughout the summer.

“As for Friday we were well up on our crowd numbers from the corresponding meeting from last year largely due to the fantastic weather.”
