Ladies Evening 2012

A record breaking crowd of more than 3,000 race goers enjoyed a fine summers evening at Wolverhampton Racecourse for the highlight of their racing calendar, Ladies Evening 2012 on September 8th. Quality racing and live entertainment ensured the event, now in its 7th year, lived up to its usual high standard! 

The evening itself, sponsored by Mecca Bingo, Guest Motors and Clean Event was the perfect opportunity for Ladies and Gents to dress up for the evening, with prizes on offer for Best Dressed Lady, Best Hat and Best Shoes. 30 Ladies were selected during the evening by the team of fashion fillies and the finals of the 3 competitions were judged by a panel of fashion Judges, Wolverhampton Celebrity Hairdressers Royston Blythe and Nick Malenko the Fashion Show Company’s Sally Mansell and Promise Dreams patron Steve Bull. The Promise Dreams fundraising team were out in force on the night and raised over £1000 for the charity. 

The hotly contested Best Dressed Lady award had 10 finalists for the judges to choose from. With prizes totalling over £1000 from Guest Motors - Alfa Romeo Wolverhampton, Royston Blythe, Hoar Cross Hall, Mecca Bingo, the Grand Theatre and Virgin Active Wolverhampton, the standard was exceptionally high. Winner by unanimous vote, for her great choice of colours and styling was Debbie Grogan who said “A massive thank you to all the team at Wolverhampton races for a fabulous evening. Horizons Restaurant was awesome as always and you even managed to arrange the gorgeous weather!”. 

The evening was finished off by another rousing set from racecourse regulars Battle of The Divas, who belted out hits from Lady Gaga, Lulu and many more till the early hours. 

Managing Director David Roberts said “The crowd for this year’s Ladies Evening were really revved up for a great night. The standard of the outfits in the competitions was very high and we are delighted that so many people entered into the Ladies Evening spirit. The culmination of hard work from our staff, the fine weather and an amazing crowd gave us a Ladies Evening to remember”.
