One of the most successful bands in British music history, Wet Wet Wet, are set to make their debut at Newmarket's July Course this Friday, August 17, and tickets are still available in the Premier Enclosure.

Wet Wet Wet have an incredible back catalogue of hits including three UK number ones - 'With A Little Help From My Friends', 'Goodnight Girl' and, of course, 'Love Is All Around' which was used in the soundtrack for 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'. After spending 15 weeks at number 1 in 1994, it is 12th in the official UK best-selling singles list.

The July Course, venue for Newmarket Nights, underwent a £10 million redevelopment over the winter months. This has led to a great improvement in the public facilities and a more enjoyable evening for racegoers who attend the immensely popular Newmarket Nights season.

Managing Director Lisa Hancock said, "We have had very positive feedback since the redevelopment especially on our Newmarket Nights.

"The improvements have meant that racegoers can move around the course, get a drink from the bar and place a bet more easily, enhancing their Newmarket Night experience."

There is also a Best Dressed Lady Competition running throughout the 2007 Newmarket Nights sponsored by local boutique, Fenella's. A finalist will be chosen at each of the Newmarket Night evening race meetings. The winner will receive a £50 voucher for Fenella's and 4 Premier Enclosure badges to return for the Grand Final on the final Newmarket Night, Friday 17th August, for the chance to win £1,000 to spend at Fenella's.

Tickets for Wet Wet Wet are priced at £28 Premier Enclosure. The Grandstand & Paddock and Garden Enclosure have sold out and all discounted child places have been allocated. To avoid disappointment, tickets can be booked by calling the Newmarket Nights booking line on 08707 200 201 before 12 noon on Thursday, August 16. Premier Enclosure tickets may be available on the gate.
