Event Summary: Join us for a brilliant night out during the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. The evening racing is followed by Spire FM Does The 80’s! After the success of last year's event, our friends at Spire FM will be returning and promise a great 2 hour show after the racing. Your host, Martin Starke, will be playing hits from the popular decade, from the balcony over-looking the course. The music will be finished at 10.30pm and racegoers in all three enclosures will be invited to enjoy the Spire FM entertainment.
