Ladies’ Night at Exeter Racecourse on Tuesday, May 8 is when the glitz and glamour of racing descend on Haldon Hill. Sponsored by Heavitree Brewery Plc, Young and old, male and female can enjoy a fantastic night out, with children aged 17 and under racing free, and fabulous prizes on offer for the best dressed ladies and gentlemen.

 Widely regarded as a highlight of the social calendar with live music from jazz singer Neil Barclay after racing, this fabulous evening is  sure to tempt racegoers to dust off their frocks and press their suit trousers, as a night of high action and entertainment concludes the season on Haldon Hill.

Incredible prizes are up for grabs, kindly donated by Hoopers of Torquay. Among them are a luxury pamper day for two and £250 to spend in the store, a £300 Joesph Ribkof voucher to spend in store, a men’s Barbour jacket of choice, a Gant men’s travel back and travel shirt box, a Radley handbag and more.
