Musical additions to Leicester Racecourse Ladies Day line up

Ladies Day at Leicester Racecourse is getting even bigger with 80s star Jaki Graham and rising urban chart star Karen Harding joining the line up alongside previously announced headliners, All Saints and Mark Wright. Ladies Day 2017 will take place on Saturday 8 July and tickets are on sale now.

Jaki Graham was the biggest selling black British female solo artist of the 80’s with hits including ‘Could It Be I’m Falling in Love’, ‘Round and Around’, ‘Set Me Free’, ‘Breaking Away’ and many more. Opening the doors for many female artists in the UK, Jaki even achieved a No.1 in the US Billboard Dance Charts for 5 weeks with her version of Chaka Khan’s ‘Ain’t Nobody’.

Jaki has a very busy year ahead with a new album due for release later this year and with her energetic live performances and outstanding vocals the crowd will be in for a real treat with this lady!

Karen Harding had one hell of a year in 2016. She showed the X Factor judges what they missed out on when her smash debut single ‘Say Something’ stormed into the Top 10, co-written and produced with Grammy-nominated MNEK and now certified gold with over 10 million video views. The 23 year-old Newcastle girl has been forging her own path with her stand-out style and sizeable vocal talents and 2017 looks to be a huge year.

Ladies Day returns to Leicester Racecourse following their biggest event yet in 2016, which saw over 11,000 race goers pass through the gates on the day. Following a record breaking event that saw a whopping 1500 bottles of Prosecco, 1000 jugs of Pimms and 40,000 pints of lager poured, 2017 looks set to be even bigger with many hospitality packages having already sold out.

Jaki Graham is certainly looking forward to the Ladies Day festivities, as she commented, “I’m very much looking forward to performing for you all and being a part of Ladies Day at Leicester Racecourse in July. Get those hats ready and see you all there! x “
