John Baker, regional director North West of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “Music nights at Haydock Park are renowned for being a fantastic day out.
“We’ll have a great afternoon of racing followed by an evening of hits from Wet Wet Wet, a hugely popular act who we are certain will receive a big welcome from the Haydock Park audience. “We saw record crowds for Madness and a large turnout for Legends of the 80’s in 2013 and we’re expecting tickets for Wet Wet Wet to sell fast.
