Relaxed Glamour on the Cards at Racing’s Midsummer Evening Party

Friday, July 22nd, 2016


SAVVY revellers have snapped up places for a midsummer party with a difference, helping Musselburgh Racecourse sell out prime packages for its new Ladies Night event.

Promising an evening of relaxed glamour to kick start the weekend, it will feature horse racing, a set by renowned Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills and entry to two of Edinburgh’s hottest night clubs.

Now the lure of the chic event has already seen the Racecourse – which is just six miles from Edinburgh city centre- sell out both its picnic tables and its champagne experience packages.

Sarah Montgomery, Senior Operations and Commercial Manager at Musselburgh Racecourse, said: “This is a night which has clearly struck a chord with those looking for a night out with a difference. Ladies love the thoughts of sitting out with their girlfriends, sipping champagne and watching the horses.

“We’re thrilled the champagne experiences and picnic tables sold out, so quickly, as this tells us that people are really looking forward to a special experience.

“The great news is that there are still plenty of places available for what promises to be one of the best midsummer parties in the social calendar. While we are expecting a real glamorous turn out, it’s still going to be very much a relaxed affair – and men are very welcome to come along too.

“It’s ideal for those who want to wind down in style after a hard week at work, but it’s also the perfect night out for anyone who wants to gear up for a full-on party weekend, with the after racing party and our tie up with two of Edinburgh’s best night club.”

The event takes place on Friday, July 29 and special buses are being laid on to ferry partygoers to and from the city centre. Bus tickets must be purchased in advance and will not be available on the day. To book please go to:

The evening will feature high quality turf action, while the atmosphere between races will be buzzing as guests enjoy the food and drink on offer, including a special Cava bar on site.

The entertainment will be ratcheted up at the after show party – which is included in the cost of the £25 tickets (£15 concession) – when DJ Scott Mills, best known for his stint on Radio One, will be on the decks, taking guests through to 10pm.

Hard core revellers can still look forward to carrying on through to the early hours, as ticket holders will get priority access to renowned Edinburgh clubs, Lulu and Opal Lounge. Details are:

Lulu Edinburgh Official – free entry before 11pm or £5 guest list after 11pm. Simply show your Musselburgh Racecourse Friday Night is Ladies Night receipt on arrival for the above offer. This includes a queue jump and a reserved table in the VIP area.

Opal Lounge – £5 entry and access to their VIP area which has an additional bar and DJ. Simply show your Musselburgh Racecourse Friday Night is Ladies Night on arrival.

Musselburgh Racecourse, which is currently in its 200th anniversary year, just celebrated a sell-out success at its recent Stobo Castle Ladies Day, followed by a high-profile visit from the Queen, who unveiled a new sculpture to mark the prestigious bicentenary.
