No Place I’d Rather Be – Jess Glynne comes to Carlisle
The Jockey Club presents presents JESS GLYNNE an open air concert at CARLISLE RACECOURSE 8TH JULY 2017
Make sure you’re ‘Right Here’ on 8th July as The Jockey Club Live and Carlisle Racecourse are delighted to welcome one of the UK’s hottest chart stars, JESS GLYNNE, to the summer flat racing season.
First coming into the public consciousness as the vocalist on Clean Bandit’s Grammy Award winning and #1 hit ‘Rather Be’; pop sensation Jess Glynne has since become one of the biggest UK breakthrough acts of recent years. Her number-one charting debut album, ‘I Cry When I Laugh‘, has turned double platinum in the UK, making it the highest selling debut album of the past year. Jess is also one of only two British female solo artists to have five consecutive UK number one singles. 2016 was a further massive year for Jess, with a sold-out UK arena tour under her belt plus she was nominated for British Breakthrough Act, British Female Solo Artist and British Single for ‘Hold My Hand’ at this year’s prestigious Brit Awards.
Jess Glynne said:
‘It’s going to be great fun playing Carlisle Racecourse on 8th July after the races. I love outdoor shows and can’t wait to share some summer evenings with my fans!’
