Wolverhampton Racecourse Glams it up for Ladies Evening

Wolverhampton Racecourse celebrated their annual Ladies evening on Saturday night in fantastic style.

The event, part of the racecourses yearly fixtures, managed to entice almost 3000 people to enjoy a great evening of racing, dining and live entertainment. Even the onset of a brief shower couldn’t stop the revellers from enjoying the live music performed on a purpose built stage.

On the evening, prizes were awarded to the Best Dressed Lady, Best Dressed Couple, and for the Best Hat. To help entice so many people to make that extra special effort for the evening, the top prize for Best Dressed Lady was a full hair make over with celebrity hair stylist Royston Blythe, who was also present on the evening to judge the contest.

The names of all the winners from the evening have been posted on the racecourses Facebook page, along with fantastic photos from the night.

Managing Director David Roberts said “A great evening was had by all. Our early concerns about the weather were unfounded as it didn’t deter any of our guests from having a great time. We are in a great position to be able to offer a full range of entertainment at the racecourse, and we believe we have packages to suit all tastes and budgets”.

The event was a great end to the summer’s events at the racecourse, which also included a Family Fun Day in August. With the course itself being all weather and flood-lit, racing doesn't stop there. David went on to say “We are now gearing ourselves up for a packed Autumn and Winter racing and entertainment schedule, which will lead us into our festivities for the Christmas period. With a mixture of midweek fixtures and Saturday evenings with live bands to come, the racecourse will be as busy as ever!”
