Global pop star Melanie C will lead a ‘Party in the Paddock’ at Carlisle Racecourse’s annual Ladies Night.
The Spice Girl, Number One solo artist and acclaimed West End Star, will perform a not-to-be-missed post-racing DJ set on Monday 6 August.
Ladies Night sees Carlisle host the UK’s only all-female jockey race meeting.
On top of a day of top quality flat racing on the track, the event is a fixture in Cumbria’s social calendar oozing chic style, glamour and fun. And Melanie is promising a hit-packed DJ set that will get the whole course dancing.
Melanie said: “I love the fact Carlisle Racecourse celebrates women in sport. So, it’s fair to say it’s going to be a day and night full of Girl Power – both on and off the track.”
Carlisle’s Ladies Night is at the forefront of promoting women in racing.
The £20,000 Jockey Club North West Development Award for female jockeys is presented to the jockey who rides a winner at Carlisle on August 6 and then goes on to win the Ladies’ Trophy Handicap Stakes at Haydock Park.
Gates open at 2.40pm. First race is 5.40pm. Melanie C’s DJ set will start after the last race at 8.45pm.
Tickets for Ladies Night are on sale now via carlisle.thejockeyclub.co.uk or by calling 0344 579 3002.
