A GUEST panel will be on hand at Hexham Racecourse to preview the world famous Cheltenham Festival.
In an exciting first for Yarridge Heights, an event looking ahead of the four-day sporting event will take place on Wednesday, March 6.
Held at the racecourse’s Henderson Suite at 7pm, a panel consisting of jockeys Peter Buchanan and Danny Cook, local trainer Michael Smith and Racing UK’s Andy Richmond and Will Smith will share their racing expertise.
The preview evening will act as a perfect warm-up to the opening fixture at Hexham on Thursday, March 14, which will coincide with St Patrick’s Day at Cheltenham.
The Yarridge meeting will be Cheltenham themed, with special lunches planned.
Tickets for the preview evening can be purchased by contacting marketing executive Lauren Dobson on (01434) 606881 or email: email@example.com

THREE watercolour paintings donated by Queen Mary were auctioned off to raise money for a new Darby and Joan club in Hexham.
A site had already been bought, but a further £6,000 was needed to run the club for the elderly.
The auction, opened by Viscountess Allendale, saw the paintings raise over £8 for the fund.
