Olly Murs, who sold out his Thetford Forest show in less than an hour, will headline an open-air concert at Newmarket Racecourse in 2017.

The singer will perform on August 18 as part of the Newmarket Nights series which is run with The Jockey Club Live group.

It follows the release of his fourth number one album, ‘24 Hrs’, which has made him The X Factor’s most successful solo artist.

Since winning The X Factor in 2009, Olly has had four multi-platinum albums and four number-one singles.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to playing Newmarket Racecourse next summer. It’ll be one of the first chances I’ll get to play tracks from ‘24 HRS’ in the sunshine so will be a special show to share with my fans.
