Racegoers going to Ladies Evening this weekend will be able to get back into the city centre afterwards.

The event on Saturday (July 13th) is set to be one of the biggest nights of the year at the Netherhampton track.

After the racing and live music from 'We Love Little Mix', there'll be free buses from 10.30pm to take people into Salisbury.

They're being funded by the Salisbury BID and The Chapel nightclub, taking passengers to Milford Street.

Kara Rogers, Marketing & Communications Manager of Salisbury BID, said:

"We're always looking for new ways to support our business members, and this is a simple yet effective way to bring people into the city. We're pleased to be promoting Salisbury's night-time economy by helping people access the city more easily after the races.

"This initiative also helps support the city's accreditation of Purple Flag, which recognises Salisbury as a vibrant and safe night out."


Racegoers can also get free entry to the Chapel nightclub until midnight, on display of their Salisbury Racecourse badge.

Amanda Newbery, Managing Director of The Chapel Nightclub, said:

"Salisbury has a fantastic nightlife offer and we hope the free buses will encourage more people to come and enjoy the city's unique bars and club.

"We're delighted to be working with the BID and Racecourse on this initiative which we hope will support our fellow night-time economy businesses."


Tickets for Saturday's event can still be bought through the Salisbury Racecourse website

There were rumours on social media that places in the Bibury enclosure had sold out, but Spire FM News has been told that's not the case, although tickets are selling well.
