Newbury’s Summer Evening Series Returns For 2024 In Partnership With Hits Radio

The popular raceday parties – all featuring live music and an afterparty – return this July with brand new themes as the Racecourse announces an exciting new partnership with Hits Radio.


After a popular debut in 2023, Newbury Racecourse’s Summer Evening Series is returning this July with three raceday parties presented in partnership with Hits Radio.

Racegoers can look forward to evening racing, live music, festival-style food and drink and a DJ afterparty at each of the raceday parties and for the first time in 2024, Newbury Racecourse’s Summer Evening Series will be supported by Hits Radio courtesy of an exciting new partnership.


Hits Radio features a soundtrack of the biggest hits of the day alongside treasured throwbacks from the last 20 years and the series which carries their name gets underway at Newbury Racecourse on Thursday 4th July with ‘The Garden Party’.

The series’ opening night promises classic British garden party vibes with over 30 gins on offer. The series then returns a week later with ‘The Wild Wild West’ on Thursday 11th July which brings with it all things pop country – expect bourbon, hay bales and live pop country music – before an afterparty with the award-winning DJ, Rattlesnake Johnny. The Racecourse will then be transported to the white isle on Thursday 25th July as the Summer Evening Series rounds out with ‘The Beach Club’, an Ibiza-themed evening complete with cocktails, beach décor and an afterparty to rival the Balearic Island itself.

Harry Walklin, Marketing Director at Newbury Racecourse commented: “Our Summer Evening Series proved popular last July and we’re pleased to be able to confirm its return. There are three exciting themes in store for racegoers and our new partnership with Hits Radio means this July’s raceday parties are set to be our biggest yet. We look forward to welcoming friends, family and colleagues alike to party with us this summer.’’

Hits Radio commented: “We’re thrilled to be able to partner with Newbury Racecourse and support their Summer Evening Series in 2024. Hits Radio are renowned for playing the biggest hits and the biggest throwbacks and Newbury’s three raceday parties promise just that this July. We’re looking forward to working with the Racecourse to bring our partnership to life across the coming weeks and months.
