Cumbria Crack: Here and Now Carlisle

March 9th, 2015


Belinda Carlisle, Toyah and Sonia amongst five acts to play Carlisle Racecourse

Carlisle Racecourse will have FIVE headline acts performing live at Ultimate Ladies’ Night this year, it was announced today (Mon Mar 9).

The appropriately named Belinda Carlisle will appear along with fellow 80s stars Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Toyah, Altered Images and Sonia at the Cumbrian track’s annual music and racing extravaganza on Monday August 3.

All five acts – appearing as the Here and Now tour – will perform consecutively on a giant trackside stage after the final race at the evening’s race meeting. Ultimate Ladies’ Night is a unique event as it is the only racing fixture in the world at which every horse in every race is ridden by a woman.

Toyah said: “I cannot wait for Here and Now to come to Carlisle.” As a keen historian, she added: “I will make time to visit the castle and the magnificent cathedral and then I can’t wait to perform. Here and Now is always an uplifting party of a concert. Every song from every artist is a winner and we always make sure the audience have the time of their lives. See you soon!”
