Friday 27th February – The Victory Lodge Annual Race Night is to take place at 7:30pm at Blackburn Masonic Hall. Proceeds from the Race Night are to be donated to the 2015 Festival.
The tickets cost £12 per person which includes:- Entry, Supper and a Race card with all the information for the evenings’ events. The theme of the evening will be “Ladies at the Races” and there will be a prize for the best dressed. There will be 8 races. A single bet is £1. It is not essential to bet on every race, or even at all! If anyone merely wishes to join us for the chicken and chips supper and to simply soak up the atmosphere of an evening of fun and laughter I feel sure they will have a very enjoyable time.  
We also need, and would appreciate, Race Sponsors; a vital part of the evening. Sponsorship is a golden opportunity for those with businesses for example, to give their support, and we in turn name a race after the Sponsor and promote them on the evening in the Masonic Hall.
