The Mail Picnic Day at Cartmel racecourse is the third day of the Whit Holiday meeting and the ideal day out in Cumbria. It's the chance to spread out a picnic blanket with friends, enjoy the fairground with a young family, and experience the thrill of live horse racing. Not only that, we're running a very special competition...

Cast your mind back to the 90s: mixtapes, floppy fringes and boy bands. Well, now is your chance to relive those magical moments. We're giving away two tickets for a VIP ‘Meet & Greet’ with Boyzone! It's part of a Boyzone Concert Raceday Package at Cartmel Races, which includes afternoon tea, paddock admission (to get you close to the action), and champagne to celebrate your win. Intrigued? Here's how you could be in with the chance of making your inner 90s super-fan really happy.

All you need to do is attend The Mail Picnic Day at Cartmel Racecourse on Wednesday 30th 2018 dressed in your best 'day at the races' attire. If you get selected (by us) for the Best Dressed Gentleman or Best Dressed Lady category, then you will be given the opportunity to pick a runner at random for the first race of the day, at 2.10pm. Pick a horse's name from the hat and if your horse comes in first, you are also a winner!

So, what is the prize?

If you pick the winning horse, you could win hospitality in our Ilex at Cartmel marquee (worth £95 each) to include:

  • Two Course Hot & Cold Buffet Lunch
  • Afternoon Tea
  • Paddock Admission
  • Racecard
  • Racing Post
  • Parking
  • A complimentary bottle of champagne
  • A 'meet & greet' experience with Boyzone after the racing (times and details TBC and subject to terms and conditions).

What have you got to lose? Your luxury racecourse hospitality experience is waiting for you, and so is Ronan Keating...
