A well-known Radio 1 DJ will be making an appearance at Carlisle Racecourse as it hosts the UKs only all-female jockey race meeting.

VL Aesthetics Ladies Night at Carlisle Racecourse will see Scott Mills host a live exclusive DJ set after the race on August 2.

Carlisle Racecourse General Manager, Molly Dingwall, said: "We’re delighted that BBC Radio One’s Scott Mills will be joining us for an exclusive DJ set after racing on VL Aesthetics Ladies Night.

"We look forward to welcoming racing and music fans to one of the most unique days on the racing calendar, the world’s only all-female jockey race meeting.

"Now in its 10th year, we’re so proud to be able to give women jockeys the platform they deserve to show off their talent and skills, from up and coming jockeys to well-known and established jockeys like Hollie Doyle, it’s an iconic day for our sport.

"Alongside the racing, Ladies Night is a fabulous social event and style award with some great prizes on offer.

"It’s great to be able to welcome back fans, they’re the heartbeat of racing and it’s great to have the buzzing atmosphere return.

"After a really difficult 15-16 months for everyone, we hope people can come and have a fantastic evening with us at Carlisle Racecourse."

This will not be the first time a famous face has paid a visit to Carlisle Racecourse.

Over the years it has seen acts such as Jess Glynne, the Kaiser Chiefs, Kylie, Little Mix, Madness, Olly Murs, Rick Astley, Tears for Fears, and Tom Jones take to the stage at the site.

Another well-known face that hosted a DJ set at Ladies Night was fashion guru Gok Wan in 2019.

The star of TV’s How To Look Good Naked and Gok’s Clothes Roadshow lead the post-racing ‘Party In The Paddock', and also crowned Cumbria’s most stylish racegoer.

The Ladies Night ‘Style Awards’ saw the best dressed racegoer walk away with a cheque of £2,000.

Other events have been able to return to the Durdar track recently.

One of these was the historic Carlisle Bell and Cumberland Plate meeting on June 23.

The event, which features the Carlisle Bell Handicap - whose trophy is said to be the oldest in world sport - saw 2,000 spectators return to the racecourse.
