We recently announced a special guest appearance and live DJ set from Fleur East for the annual Ladies Evening fixture which will take place on Thursday 29 August.
The annual raceday, which gets started at approximately 3.00pm and the first race at approximately 5.00pm, will include seven live races, best dressed lady competition, a mad hatters tea party and live entertainment after racing with a superb DJ set from Fleur East.
Singer, songwriter and rapper, Fleur East, rose to fame in 2014 becoming the first X-Factor contestant to hit number one on the UK iTunes Store chart during the show with her performance of 'Uptown Funk' where she eventually came runner-up in the competition. Prior to the X-Factor, Fleur collaborated with DJ Fresh on 'Turn it Up' before huge commercial success followed with her smash hit platinum selling single 'Sax' in 2015 entering the top 3 UK Singles Chart and staying in the Top 10 for seven weeks. This lead to her signing a US record deal with Sony Music's Columbia Records. In 2018, Fleur entered the 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' jungle, finishing fourth on the show.
Fleur has also become a major online influencer in fashion as well as music building a following of over 1 million across all platforms. Fleur's urban inspired pop style translates directly into her DJ sets, spinning a mix of RnB, Hip-Hop and Pop.
Emma White, General Manager at the racecourse said: “We are really excited that Fleur East will add to what will be an exceptional evening. I think the Mad Hatters Tea Party Marquee with cocktails served from teapots will definitely be the place to be. We have some fabulous prizes this year for the best dressed lady and please don’t forget we have a thrilling seven race card.”
