And bring your family, friends and NEIGHbours too!

There are no children at this event so we can all let our hair down.  Book your babysitter now!!!!!!


🍾🍷A bar will be provided so spend your cash with us and keep your drinks cool!!! We have a license to sell alcohol so please do not BYO!

If you would like to bring your own drinking vessels to avoid plastic waste please do so….but note that we have already thought about measures and you clever cats can’t pull the wool over our eyes with big pint glasses for Prosecco 


Alternatively bring straws and buy a bottle πŸ₯΄


The night will be rounded off with a disco, courtesy of everyone’s favourite DJ - Simon Cronin!!! So if you’re not the betting kind, you can come for a boogie.



All of this a total bargain at £5 per person!

No need to pay for each ticket individually on SumUp. For example if you want 4 tickets, pay £20, or 10 tickets, pay £50. Simples!

Once paid using the link, please send your screenshot via email to with your full name and how many tickets you have paid for *this is very important, we have no way of linking up the paymets without this, we will know someone has paid but no record of who*

What is a Race Night?


A few people have asked what a ‘Race Night’ consists of….


A Race Night is a great fun way to raise money for a local charity, club or school. A projector and screen will be set up by the organiser (an expert provider, not the PTA) and up to 8 dog/horse races, selected randomly by the organiser from a choice of DVDs, will be shown. 


Before each race the betting desk (Tote) will be opened where, for a minimum stake of usually £1, bets can be placed on the horse that you expect to win. The race will be shown on a big screen with commentary provided throughout the race, coupled with exciting close finishes, lots of cheering and rivalry can be expected. 


At the end of the race the winning horse is confirmed and also displayed on the screen; those lucky ticket holders that bet on the 1st place horse then collect their winnings from the betting desk. Winnings will depend on the amount bet on each race.
