Irish Night ft. The Wild Murphy’s – Mon 12 June

The ever-popular Irish Night returns for an evening of competitive racing and a celebration of all things Irish – expect lots of Guinness, Irish food, line dancers and plenty of craic!

For the second year in a row, our special guests The Wild Murphy’s will join us for an unmissable high-energy performance after racing! If your taste in music lies on the lively side of Irish, The Pogues, The Dubliners and even the odd Foster and Allan now and again, then this is the group for you! Middi and his raggle taggle misfits will end the evening on a high, playing some of the greatest Irish classics in their own inimitable style.

Imagine the fun of a St Patricks day celebration but on a lovely June evening.
