The frontman of the Kaiser Chiefs is coming to Cumbria for an outdoor DJ set next weekend.

This is after a full day of horse racing for Jumping July Saturday at Cartmel Racecourse on Saturday July 16.

He said: "I can't wait to come to Cumbria to entertain the racegoers at Cartmel this summer. 

"I won't predict a riot but I can promise the place will be jumping. So get yourselves along."

There is a full card of seven races on the day at 1.54pm, 2.29pm, 3.04pm, 3.34pm, 4.10pm, 4.44pm, 5.15pm. 

Ricky's set will start between 6.00pm and 6.30pm and run until 7.30pm to 8pm. 

Kasier Chiefs has released seven albums since 2004, most recently Duck in 2019.

Ricky has also been a coach on The Voice UK since 2014, the host of Bring The Noise, and a presenter of The One Show. 

Geraldine McKay, director of racing at Cartmel Racecourse said: "We are so delighted to welcome Ricky Wilson to our lovely racecourse this summer, another huge act following on from David Gray who was here in June. 

"He will be the perfect way to finish off a day of high-quality racing here in south Cumbria. So don't delay-get your tickets now!
