Itís a pirateís life for Redcar Racecourse

Thursday 30 July 2015

Redcar Racecourse introduces pirates and the Caribbean on Saturday 8th August, for its fifth feature meeting of the racing season.


The annual event, which expects over 4,500 people, will include a steel band, Carmen Miranda stiltwalkers, Caribbean cocktails and of course pirates who will teach chants and tell stories of life on the open wave.
As well as seven races, there will be a fancy dress competition for those who don their pirate and Caribbean costumes. The winner will of course receive the prized treasure. 
Amy Fair, general manager of Redcar Racecourse, said: “This event is always buzzing! I can’t wait to see this year’s costumes, everyone always makes such an effort.”
Local performing arts company Page2Stage is working closely with Redcar Racecourse to deliver a fun filled day for the local children. They will be singing sea shanties and speaking pirate lingo.
For a chance to win VIP tickets the racecourse is also running a pets of the Caribbean competition on its social media accounts. People are encouraged to take photos of their pets wearing eye patches and floral shirts, anything resembling the exotic theme. The winner will be announced on Tuesday 4th August.
The remainder of the 2015 season at Redcar has two other feature racedays; Ladies’ and Gents’ Evening on 29th August and the famous Two Year Old Trophy on Saturday 3rd October.
There are many hospitality options from the Dine & View package in the Crow’s Nest Restaurant, to racegoers’ packages including admission, a racecard, food and drink.
Parties of 10 or more can also save over 20% when they book their Grandstand or Course Enclosure admission tickets in advance.
