Ladies Evening 2013

A crowd of nearly 3,000 people turned up on Saturday 7th September, all dressed in their finery for our annual Ladies Evening at the racecourse.

The entertainment was of the highest quality, courtesy of stylish fashion shows put on by Boutiqued, fabulous live music from The Bon Jovi Experience and a brilliant seven race card.

Amongst the live entertainment we hosted three fashion competitions, including; 'Best Shoes', 'Best Hat' and 'Best Dressed Lady'. There were a fantastic selection of shoes, hats and dresses across the finals, that were judged by Rachel New from Heart FM, Michelle Jones from Lisa Shepherd Wombourne, Boutiqued owner Suzanne Cartwright, Caroline Pitt from Bella Sposa Bridal and Sue Williams from Breast Cancer Care.

The winners were as follows:

  • Best Shoes went to Rebecca Yates from Great Wyrley.
  • Best Hat went to Lindsey Whitehouse from Lanesfield, Wolverhampton for a hat she created herself.
  • Best Dressed Lady went to Emily West from Halesowen for her 1940's inspired combination (pictured below).  

Nathan Corden, head of commercial development at Wolverhampton Racecourse, said of the event, "It was great to see so many ladies out enjoying the delights that we have to offer here at Wolverhampton. It was fantastic to see so many smiling faces and we hope that for those first timers at the racecourse it won't be their last visit."

Our charity partner for the event, Breast Cancer Care, raised £449.88 from the evening and would like to thank visitors for their generosity.

Thank you to all who attended and we hope to see you again soon!
