The racecourse’s general manager Amy Fair said: “This is a real coup for the racecourse, and we are thrilled to have secured such a top band for our Saturday Party Night.
“The Commitments are famous all over the world, and have played for presidents, prime ministers and royalty, so it will be a tremendous occasion.”
