Royal Ascot will come to Backwell Playhouse later this week in a fun charity event.
For one night only, people can make bets, win and lose, drink and raise money for the future of the playhouse.
As part of a fundraising effort to improve accessibility and facilities on site, a horse racing evening will grace the village on Saturday (July 16).
On the night, bets of £1 can be made on any of the eight horses in each of eight races throughout the event. The winnings will be a proportional share of the prize pot for that race.
There will also be the chance to own one of the 64 horses racing for £3 per horse. If your horse wins the race, you will win £7.50.
Doors open at 7pm for the first race at 7.45pm.
Tickets are priced at £5 per person, and can be purchased on the website at www.backwellplayhouse.co.uk, on the door, or by calling Jon on 07974223081 to pay by card.
