Carlisle Racecourse Set For Sensationally Stylish 2017

By | Rhodes Media Blogs | No Comments

2017 is already shaping up to be one of the biggest and best years ever at Carlisle Racecourse… and, let’s face it, one of its most sensationally stylish!

Tickets for Jess Glynne’s show on July 8 continue to fly out of the door – easily the fastest-selling music event the Cumbrian Racecourse has ever staged.

And we are now delighted to reveal BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley will be the post-race host for #AmazingMonday on August 7. Jo will lead a ‘Party In The Paddock’ at our annual Ladies Day with what promises to be an electrifying DJ-set.

#AmazingMonday has rapidly become Carlisle’s most devilishly chic day out of the year, one which oozes style, glamour and fun.

And Jo is clearly relishing her day out in Cumbria. She said: “This is going to be a fantastic day. Carlisle is a wonderful city, and Carlisle Racecourse is at the forefront of supporting and celebrating women in racing so I cannot wait for August 7 – it’s going to be such a big party!”

Now in its seventh year, #AmazingMonday is a day Carlisle Racecourse is truly proud of – the world’s only all-female jockey race meeting.

And given the ethos of the day, which is to celebrate, empower and promote women in racing,  Jo is the perfect choice to lead our post-race ‘Party In The Paddock’.

Jo is not only one of our top national broadcasters, but a true champion of women in music.

Together with the party atmosphere in the stands and around the course – where fine food, fabulous fashion (and dare we say it the odd glass of fizz) are the order of the day, there is the serious business on the track.

#AmazingMonday is at the forefront of bringing through and developing women in racing. 2016 saw the introduction of the Jockey Club North West Development Award for female jockeys.

This unique award is presented to the jockey who rides a winner at Carlisle’s #AmazingMonday fixture and then goes on to win the Ladies’ Trophy Handicap Stakes at Haydock Park.

Last year, Cumbria’s own Emma Sayer secured the £20,000 Development Award prize which provides an opportunity for personal development and support for female jockeys.

#AmazingMonday is a wonderful event on so many levels – be they sporting or social – so we cannot wait for this year’s meeting to get underway.

So, come on ladies, what are you waiting for? Secure your place at the party of the year and… LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE GIRLS!

Tickets for #AmazingMonday on Monday August 7 are available at a limited time special offer price of £15. To buy yours call 0344 579 3002 or go online at www.carlisle.thejockeyclub.co.uk

Jo Whiley to host #AmazingMonday’s ‘Party In The Paddock’

By | Rhodes Media Blogs | No Comments

Radio star Jo Whiley is inviting you to a ‘Party In The Paddock’ on #AmazingMonday – Carlisle Racecourse’s most stylish and fun-packed day of the year.

Broadcaster and Radio 2 presenter Jo will perform a special post-race DJ set as part of this summer’s fantastic Ladies Day event which takes place on Monday August 7.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Thursday January 19 at a special limited time price of just £15 – a fantastic saving of £10 on the normal gate admission.

#AmazingMonday is the world’s only all-female jockey race meeting as Cumbria’s premier racecourse once again celebrates and promotes women in racing.

On top of a day of top quality racing, the event is an ever-popular fixture in Cumbria’s social calendar oozing style, glamour and fun.

Jo Whiley said: “This is going to be a fantastic day at Carlisle Racecourse. I always love DJ’ing at race meetings as the crowds are always in a great mood after a day’s superb action on the track.

“Carlisle is a wonderful city, and Carlisle Racecourse is at the forefront of supporting and celebrating women in racing so I cannot wait for August 7 – it is going to be such a big party!”

Geraldine McKay, Carlisle Racecourse’s General Manager, said: “#AmazingMonday is one of the highlights of our race calendar both in terms of the action on the track and the atmosphere in the stands and around the course.

“And we are delighted to announce Jo Whiley will be the star of our Party In The Paddock. Jo is not only one of our top national broadcasters, but a true champion of women in music.

“Given the ethos of #AmazingMonday, which is to celebrate, empower and promote women in racing, we believe Jo is the perfect choice to lead our post-race Party In The Paddock.”

Now in its seventh year, #AmazingMonday is at the forefront of promoting women in racing.  2016 saw the introduction of the Jockey Club North West Development Award for female jockeys.

The unique award is presented to the jockey who rides a winner at Carlisle’s #AmazingMonday fixture and then goes on to win the Ladies’ Trophy Handicap Stakes at Haydock Park.

Last year, Cumbria’s own Emma Sayer secured the £20,000 Development Award prize which provides an opportunity for personal development to support individual requirements for female jockeys. This could take the form of extra tuition or course fees, and will be dictated by the winning jockey.

Geraldine added: “Carlisle is proud to be at the forefront of supporting female jockeys with #AmazingMonday – the only raceday in the world that has a female-only card.

“The Development Award can make a real difference by way of providing financial support and wonderful exposure for female jockeys and we cannot wait for this year’s meeting to get underway.”

Tickets for #AmazingMonday go on sale at 9am on Thursday January 19. The special offer price of £15 is available for only a limited time. To buy tickets call 0344 579 3002 or go online at carlisle.thejockeyclub.co.uk

LITTLE MIX BRING THEIR ‘SUMMER SHOUT OUT’ TOUR TO SCARBOROUGH & SOUTHAMPTON

By | Rhodes Media Blogs | No Comments

The world’s biggest girl band LITTLE MIX are heading to Scarborough and Southampton in 2017 as part of their ‘Summer Shout Out’ tour.

Since 2011, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have established themselves as one of British pop’s brightest acts.

And Little Mix bring their sensational stage show – featuring such signature hits as Shout Out to My Ex, Black Magic, Hair and Wings, alongside tracks from their new album Glory Days – to Scarborough OAT on Thursday July 6 and then Southampton’s Ageas Bowl on Sunday 9.

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday January 20 priced from £35 and are available from www.ticketmaster.co.uk

Pop acts like Little Mix don’t come along that often. Growing better and bolder with each new album, they understand the brilliance of pop music and how it relates to their passionate and loyal fan base.

2016 was an incredible year for the band with another massive No.1 single Shout Out To My Ex, and their album Glory Days, shooting straight to No.1 on the Official Albums Chart.

The record has spent a total of four weeks in the peak position and is the quickest selling album in the UK charts by a girl group since Destiny’s Child’s Survivor in 2001. It is also the longest-reigning girl group No.1 album of the millennium.

The Scarborough and Southampton dates are part of the band’s 13-date ‘Summer Shout Out’ tour and are being organised by promoters Cuffe and Taylor.
