Taking place on Tuesday, 9 May is Evening Racing with Live Music, when Wincanton Racecourse will become the vibrant mix of swing dresses and chic 1950s fashions with Ultimate Grease performing after racing to make you rock and roll and inject the feel good factor back into spring.

The Racecourse team have already sourced their Pink Ladies outfit and are set to learn how to rock 'n' roll at Wincanton’s penultimate seasonal race meeting.

The 1950s was about fun, happiness and excitement – three words which also sum up horseracing – and to encourage racegoers to indulge in a good dose of nostalgia, rock 'n' roll dancers will be on hand to demonstrate the good old-fashioned jive style routines. There’s also a Best Dressed prize for the most authentic 1950s Rockabilly or Pink Lady, a complimentary Wonder Booth to capture all the fun plus delicious food and cocktails are all on the agenda alongside a six-racecard.

Gates open at 4pm with the first race off at 5:45pm. Tickets start from £12 on 0844 579 3014 or visit wincantonracecourse.co.uk
