Hot on the heels of a show stopping performance by singer songwriter Lucie Silvas, Hamilton Park Racecourse is celebrating a sharp increase in attendance figures. The event in conjunction with Radio Clyde was the first of it?s kind offering racegoers the fantastic combination of horseracing and live entertainment.
Attendance figures soared past the 6500 mark – considerably higher than the racecourse would normally expect at such a meeting proving that this recipe of music and racing is set to be a winner with racegoers.
Acclaimed singer songwriter Lucie Silvas – fresh from her appearance at the VE Day anniversary concert in Trafalgar Square – performed at the racecourse at the end of the popular ?Braveheart Night? race meeting on Friday which was sponsored by Radio Clyde.
Chief Executive of Hamilton Racecourse Alastair Warwick said: ?It was clear from the size of the crowd that live entertainment combined with racing struck a chord with the public. We will soon be announcing further plans to bring other artistes to Hamilton Park between now and September when our racing season ends.?
Radio Clyde Managing Director Paul Cooney says: ?A fantastic evening was had by all at Hamilton Park Racecourse and Radio Clyde was delighted to be involved in bringing the immensely talented Lucie Silvas to play at such a wonderful venue.?
