A Day at the Races



Union Lodge “A Day at the Races”


In support of the East Kent Provincial 2025 Festival.

Entry price to the Lunch and Race Day for Members, family and friends attending will be £15 for adults and £7.50 for children under 12 years old. This includes a Light Lunch plus a Race Card, with 7 Races with 6 horses in each and Card having a Unique Lucky Number.

Lucky numbers will be drawn on the day to decide who owns each of 5 horses in the first 5 Races, 1 being owned by the Sponsor.  Last 2 Races, Horse owners decided by Auction.

Long before the Race Day, there are 7 Races and their Horses to be named, each Race sponsored by an individual or consortium for printing in the Race Card.

To sponsor a Race you need to supply ONE Bottle of Spirituous Liquor or Fortified Wine for you to present to the owner of the winning horse in your Sponsored Race.

Sponsors also get to choose and become owner of ONE Horse in their Sponsored Race.

Sponsors will name their Race and name ALL 6 Horses including their Pedigrees so they can be pre-printed in the Race Cards during August.

For Example

HORSE                                                          PEDIGREE

Christmas Present                                       Out of: Batteries
By: Boxing Day

Frustrated Builder                                        Out of: Bricks
By: Master Craftsman

Why not also take an advert in the Race Card ?

The Race Card will have several pages A4 folded to A5 in size with 7 Races, each having 6 Horses.

The Race Rules and Races will be on the right hand page facing Adverts on left hand page, with some Adverts facing other text or illustrations.

There is no difference in cost for Full Colour or Black and White adverts.

Advert costs are £25 for a Full Page or £12.50 for Half Page.

If you choose to have multiple Half pages, then they can be on different pages in the Race Card, which gets you increased advertising exposure.

Apart from advertising businesses, an advert could be for Masonic Side Orders or Light Blues or other Lodge events, even a simple greeting, if desired.

ALL Adverts will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Copy Deadline date is 31st July 2024 at the very latest, for Adverts and Races but copy will be happily received at any time BEFORE then, (earlier the better).

Ideally, to avoid typos, the Adverts should be in pdf format or JPG format if photographs involved.

YES we can even print QR Codes if you can provided them in electronic format.


There are only 4 Races left for Sponsorship and 3 Full Pages plus 1 Half Page for Adverts.

The Full Pages can be split into Half Pages if required.
