For the past three decades, Bananarama’s Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward have been one of pop’s most influential and revered groups.

Their achievements speak for themselves; an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful female band worldwide with the most charting singles, multiple sell-out tours and 32 Top 40 UK hits.

They have released ten albums and sold 30 million records, including hits such as ‘Venus’ and ‘Cruel Summer’.

2019 will see the band release their 11th studio album, ‘In Stereo’, their first studio album in ten years. 

Friday 9th August cannot come quickly enough!

Heather Small

As Part of M People, hits including 'Moving On Up', 'One Night In Heaven' and 'Search For The Hero' and albums such as ‘Elegant Slumming’ and ‘Bizarre Fruit’ achieving massive worldwide success, Heather Small became one of the seminal British voices of the 1990s.

M People won the Best British Dance Act Award at the BRITs in 1994 and 1995, as well as the Mercury Music Prize for ‘Elegant Slumming’.

Heather has since had great successes with two solo albums – the title track of her 'Proud' album has gone on to become the soundtrack synonymous to a whole host of sporting events including London's successful 2012 Olympic bid, England's victory at the Rugby World Cup celebrations, and the official ceremony marking the handover of the Olympic Games from Beijing to London.

Newmarket Nights

Newmarket is the historic home of horse racing and hosts a season of live music across the summer.

In 2018, highlights included performances by Craig David, George Ezra and Paloma Faith.
