Madness gig at Carlisle Racecourse cancelled

Tonight's concert by Madness at Carlisle Racecourse has been cancelled.

The racing due to take place earlier in the evening is also off.

The band - famous for hits such as Baggy Trousers, House of Fun and One Step Beyond - was due to perform at the Stobart Summer Festival.

The recent torrential rain is behind the decision to scrap the event for which 7,500 tickets had been sold.

Full refunds will automatically be given. Anyone who has paid cash for tickets should return them to the racecourse to receive a refund.

Have your say

In complete agreement with J, brilliant night in Carlisle last night, everywhere was bouncing! Still gutted about missing Madness though.

Is it time to reintroduce the dog licence?

Yes - It would certainly make people more responsible about looking after their pets

No - Some people will just abandon dogs whether they've paid for a licence or not

Maybe - but also all dogs should be microchipped and tagged so owners can be traced
