VISITORS to Herefordshire's centre for the arts will be under starter's orders for a fund-raising race night.

The Courtyard in Hereford is holding the event on Saturday, March 22, when the Edgar Street-based will be transformed into a busy grandstand full of paying punters watching the horses race on the big screen.

There will be plenty of opportunities to place a bet and entry will include a curry supper.

Individuals or companies can sponsor a horse or race and the crowd will be professional auctioneer and compère for the evening Paul Morris.

The event in the Studio Theatre starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £15.
