WITH much of 2020’s performances across the industry coming to a standstill, singer Olly Murs is hoping to give many a reason to smile with his latest outdoor show coming to the area.

The pop sensation has announced he will be headline Party in the Paddock which will stop off at Newbury Racecourse on Saturday, August 14, 2021.

It comes as part of the Summer UK Outdoor Tour which will race round 25 different venues from June 5, 2021.

Olly is no stranger to raising the roof at Newbury Racecourse having performed twice at Party in the Paddock in recent years.

He first performed on the paddock stage as part of the 2010 X Factor Party in the Paddock event before returning as a solo artist in 2017 for a sell-out crowd.

Newbury Racecourse director of Marcomms Harriet Collins said: “We all need something to look forward to next summer and are really excited to announce that Olly Murs will return to the Party in the Paddock stage here at Newbury Racecourse next August to perform live after racing.

“Last here in 2017, Olly performed to a fantastic crowd of over 21,000 and we remain hopeful that we will be able to welcome similar numbers back here next summer after what has been a very challenging year for us all.

“Here at Newbury, we remain focussed on ensuring we can provide our customers with a safe and fun environment to return to as soon as we are allowed.”

The singer is said to be currently working on new music during lockdown to be shared next year.
