Join us for Worcester’s most glamorous race day

28th February 2017

Hats, heels and horses will be the order of the day for Worcestershire fashionistas later this year.

St Richard’s Hospice is organising a special event at The CrownGate Ladies Day on Saturday 3 June providing an opportunity for racegoers to compete in the style stakes alongside top class racing action.

Held at Worcester Racecourse, guests – men are also welcome – will be treated like royalty; on arrival they will be greeted with a reception drink on the marquee lawn accompanied by live music.  Lunch will consist of three courses, followed by race card top tips from an experienced tipster, plus afternoon tea and a grand auction at the end of the day hosted by Philip Serrell Auctioneers.

Individual tickets are priced at £105 limited to four per booking – or tables of 10 for £1,250.

Alison Parkes, Senior Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice said : “Yet again, our ladies will take centre stage at this fabulous annual event at Worcester Racecourse.  Men – you are welcome too!

“Come and enjoy a day of glamour and glitz at what is undoubtedly one of the county’s most popular racing events.  We look forward to welcoming you!”

Last year’s event raised more than £18,000 profit for the hospice.

The event is sponsored by Close Brothers Asset Management.
