My View, Cheryl Sadler: Looking to the St Leger festival already
The name's Sadler, Cheryl Sadler! Who hasn't tried the old James Bond introduction with their own name?
Bond is a hero who has spanned many decades and now he is coming to Doncaster, well his lookalike is.
We’ve got a special James Bond, aka Daniel Craig, lookalike coming to Lakeside Village next month, July 2, to launch our special Ladies on the Lawn day in conjunction with Doncaster Racecourse.
At the event our shoppers will be invited to have their photo taken with our Bond lookalike, enjoy free pamper treatments such as hand and shoulder massages and relax with a free Pimms and lemonade.
This event will be a chance for people to pick up St Leger Ladies day ticket promotional vouchers and be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to the County enclosure.
The St Leger Festival is a really big deal for the town, its residents, and the visitors it attracts every year. That is why we wanted to put on this event to help people to gear up for the festival and to get tips from the experts on how to look their best.
We’ll have hairdressers to give demonstrations of the latest styles and many of our stores will be involved too showcasing outfits and showing how to accessorise to get the best out of any dress.
The St Leger Festival seems to get bigger and better each year and we know this year there is lots planned for it and we’re delighted to hear the DNWeekeND, delivered by Right Up Our Street, will be kicking off the festivities.
Not wanting to wish the summer away but September will be here before we know it and we know from shopping trends that our customers like to get their races outfits in the bag by the end of July.
We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to this free event and helping to add that extra bit of glam and sparkle to Ladies Day.
Running from noon until 4pm on Saturday July 2 the event is sure to draw a crowd.
Staff from the Racecourse will be on hand throughout the afternoon with discount cards for money off races tickets.
