Friends of THS Race Night – Friday 11 March

Thursday 03 February 2022 | By Samantha Hockney

Our spring term PTA events have been deliberately designed to have a strong social aspect, with the emphasis on parents and families coming together to enjoy a relaxing, fun evening. After all, this has been a long time coming! To this end, we would like to invite you to the Friends of THS Race Night on Friday 11 March in the Prep School Hall.

Everyone is welcome; members of our school community or wider family and friends (adults only, please). Doors open at 7.00pm with the opening race commencing at 7.30pm. Tickets include a pie and peas supper (vegan option available) and drinks are on a ‘bring your own’ (BYO) basis.

The Race Night evening will consist of eight races with eight horses competing in each. Tickets for the evening cost £10.00 and also include a free race bet; early booking is advised and this can be done with ease via ParentPay.

If you fancy yourself as an owner, you can also purchase a horse! Owners receive a prize for each race they emerge victorious, and you also get the chance to name your horse. Each horse is £3.00 and, again, this can be paid via ParentPay when you purchase your tickets.

A reminder that events such as these directly fund improvements to our school; our focus for the coming year is to raise enough to refurbish the Main Hall, with new curtains, carpet and gallery seating a priority.

We hope you can join us for the evening!
