Celebrating St.Patricks Day at Newcastle Races with Ladbrokes

20 March 2017

Over my time blogging I've had some amazing opportunities, but I have to say this has got to be up there in my top 3! Ladbrokes very kindly invited me down to Newcastle Racecourse to spend the day there in a premier box with a 3 course meal included, basically the whole shebang!

I decided to go with a nude and rose gold theme with my outfit, I would have loved to have worn a fascinator but I just couldn't find the perfect match in time! However, I still loved my outfit and it felt amazing to get dressed up and go to the box, I felt like a proper VIP!

After meeting up with the lovely Beth from Polished Couture and getting the train there, we were greeted by a glass of Irish bucks fizz, which was gorgeous and tasted a bit like apple! We then sat down and were joined by some fellow bloggers and lovely ladies Audrey and Beth who arranged everything for us. As if we hadn't already been treat enough, Audrey and Beth gave us all a lovely little bracelet for good luck, and it must have brought some good luck as I won 3 bets that day!

Next came the food! Looking at the menu it was quite Irish themed, and I decided to go with salmon for starters, pork, veggies and a Yorkshire pudding for my main, and then a super indulgent white & dark chocolate torte for dessert. The food was amazing and I can say with confidence that I enjoyed every bite!

After food we decided to get a drink and then go out to explore on the grounds near the racecourse and see the horses up close. Although it was quite cold everyone was in high spirits, the men were all dressed up in suits and the girls were in their best dresses, I loved feeling so glam!

The bar, betting stations and toilets were all a short walk away which was handy in heels! They even had betting desks inside and out which I thought was good as you didn't have to be in one place all the time.

The package I was treat to was worth £102 all together and I'd definitely say it's worth the money if you're wanting a glam day out! This was my first time at the races and I can't wait to go back again hopefully in the Summer.

Thank you so much to Ladbrokes for inviting me and to Audrey and Beth for arranging everything, I had such a good time! If you want to check out Ladbrokes and join in on the horse racing yourself then you can follow the link here.
