Enjoy a fiesta of Flat racing this summer as Haydock Park hosts the Rose of Lancaster Carnival, from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th August.
With three days of excellent action and entertainment to choose from both on and off the track, Ronan Keating has been announced as the music headliner to start the carnival party after racing on the Friday evening. The weekend’s feature event comes in the shape of Saturday's Group Three race - the MansionBet Rose of Lancaster Stakes – and with a family fun day on Sunday to close the weekend, there’s something for everyone.
Since the original break-up of Boyzone, one of the most successful British bands of the Nineties, Keating has forged a soaraway solo career including two back-to-back Number One singles straight out of the gate, 11 studio albums, multiple tours and 20 million records sold on top of the 25 million sold with Boyzone. In other areas, too, he’s happily stretched his wings by judging on both the X Factor and The Voice in Australia, acting in both television drama and film, a highly acclaimed stint on London’s West End, his morning radio show on Magic FM with Harriet Scott and presenting the BBC’s The One Show.
Dickon White, Regional Director of Jockey Club Racecourses North West, said:
“It’s been an incredibly challenging time for everyone over the past year or so but we can think of no better way to launch the Rose Of Lancaster Carnival than with Ronan Keating taking to the stage on the Friday night at Haydock Park.”

On our evening racing plus music events, artists take to the stage at any time from 8:30pm, our recommendation is that they are not suitable for children under 16.
Whilst we recommend that these events are not suitable for children under 16, if you do wish to bring them as part of your party, at your discretion, they can attend as long as they possess a valid ticket to gain entry and there is a responsible adult of 18 and above to every two children under 16.
We take every precaution to try and ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time at all of our events. If you do decide to bring a child under 16, we would suggest against taking them into the most densely crowded areas, which includes the large area in front of the stage.
It is your responsibility to check the suitability of an event for any children in your party regardless of official age restrictions, this includes considering the type of audience the event is likely to attract and whether such an audience is a suitable environment for children in your party.
