RASEN is getting ready to rock with the stars of smash hit television show X Factor.

Following the phenomenal popularity of Market Rasen Racecourse’s first ever concert last year, starring three finalists from X Factor 2009, a superb new gig for 2011 was announced this week.

Acts are still to be added to the line-up for the Rasen Rocks show, but already confirmed are Aiden Grimshaw and Paije Richardson, who starred in last year’s series of the show.

The contestants from the hit programme will wow the Rasen Racecourse crowd on Sunday, July 3.

Tickets have just gone on sale and, judging by the big attendance last summer, they’ll be in great demand. Adult tickets start at £15; tickets for children aged between five and 17 years and who are accompanied by an adult are just £6 each.

Pip Kirkby, the racecourse’s managing director, said: “With the X Factor being such a huge success, having Aiden and Paije performing after racing in July is set to be a very big draw indeed.

“We were thrilled with how popular our first ever after-racing concert was last summer, and we’re now delighted to put on another feast of musical entertainment for our visitors.”
