ANNOUNCEMENT: Radio star Jo Whiley is inviting you to a ‘Party In The Paddock’ on #AmazingMonday – Carlisle Racecourse’s most stylish and fun-packed day of the year. Broadcaster and Radio 2 presenter Jo will perform a special post-race DJ set as part of this summer’s fantastic Ladies Day event which takes place on Monday August 7.

Join us for your #AmazingMonday!

Already one of the most glamorous events in Carlisle's social calendar, Ladies Day at Carlisle Racecourse is the perfect opportunity for you to to don your finery and enjoy an exclusive Ladies Day and Night. Featuring a touch of elegance and a night of superb horse racing, it is a night not to be missed!

#AmazingMonday will be filled with fashion, style and fun.

Make sure you're here early to witness the only competition of it's kind - a race day where female jockey's challenge each other to win the Durdar Trophy.

Dress to impress ladies - it's you're time to shine!

Sadly we can't allow picnics on site and please be aware that your bags may be searched upon arrival.

Complimentary Shuttle Buses will leave from inside the racecourse. Stay within the racecourse and head to the far end of the track, back towards the city centre. The buses will leave from gate 1. The buses will run until everyone has left the site, so do not worry if you can’t get on the first one! This service will start as soon as the music finishes and will continue until the site is cleared.

Please note that pre-booked taxis and mini buses, should head to the North Car Park [nearest to the City Centre] for drop off and collection only – they will only be allowed to turn right back into town upon exit.

If you are arranged to be collected from the Racecourse, please make necessary arrangements for 10.30pm.

Book a suite or the restaurant now to avoid disappointment on this fantastic night.
