Leicester is a good race course all year round where you are close to the action whether talking about the paddock or the course. Nice place to spend an afternoon/evening. Even better if you actually win.

Well I certainly don't intend getting married here but am thinking of coming to the night racing on the 13th June (band and DJ also) with 3 of my friends. Have you hosted an event like this before and was it well attended. By the way its a bit of a shame that Mary J who did the Wedding post couldn't spell :)
