Former X-Factor winner James Arthur has been confirmed as the latest artist to play at Newmarket’s July Course this year.

The 2012 winner of the hit ITV talent show will take to the stage at the track for opening Summer Saturday Live event on May 31.

“It’s fantastic to be announcing the first of our two Summer Saturdays Live in 2014,” said Amy Starkey, Newmarket Racecourses boss.

“James Arthur is performing to sell-out audiences across Europe and our spectators will love him when he brings his wonderful singing talent to The July Course. It will be an occasion not to be missed.”
