Some soundbites form last week's concert at Motherwell Cathedral

Choral Classics for a Spring Evening

Best heard through head or earphones. Some soundbites from last week's concert in the Cathedral. Apologies for the poor quality video. It was all recorded on a mobile phone from the rear of the church. Hopefully the lack of professional recording should not detract from your enjoyment. We are seeking new choir members, especially tenors and altos. Please contact us via our website if you are interested in coming along to "try us out". You never know, you may just enjoy yourself.

Choir Racenight - in aid of choir funds

Bring your friends and family to a fun night, to raise funds for the choir. Meal included in the ticket price. 

Here are some FAQ's if you have never been to a racenight before.

Q) Race Nights are they legal?


A) Yes,it’s a great family night out for all ages. A race night properly run is actually a lottery or lucky dip, as defined in Gambling Act 2005. The films are simply an entertaining way of selecting a winning number at random, and the tote ‘betting’ tickets are just chances in a lottery where nobody knows which number will win.


It is worth explaining that our race nights are the type of event where films are picked at random, none of the actual runners on the film are named, and no ‘form’ (information about the runners) is given until all the bets have been placed. The films are then shown in their entirety after the betting has finished.


If a race night is held on your premises, you do not have to register with the police, or obtain a license. You can also hold a race event on a Sunday


All our activities are governed by the Charities Act 1992, which includes a set of rules, which professional fundraisers must follow. The most important point is that we have an agreement — a legal contract with the organisations we support, and all our partner charities are registered charities.


Q) How does the race night work?


A) A race night usually consists of between six and nine races each with eight horses. The first five to eight are normal races where you would be expected to sell each of the horses in each race to an owner prior to the race night. The owner names the horse and would get a prize if their horse wins the race. The last race is an auction race where each horse is sold to the highest bidder on the night, with a large cash prize given to the winning owner of this race.


The normal running order for a night would be:


Races 1 to 4


Short Interval with

The Auction Race



Followed by the raffle & any other auction items.


Every race has the same format:

  • For the auction race, the horses are sold to owners who bid for each horse.


  • The betting is opened and bets are sold for each horse. When everyone has had a chance to bet on the horse(s) of their choice the betting is closed.


  • A member of the audience is invited to select a race from a selection of unmarked security sealed DVDs.

  • The value of each bet is announced to the audience

  • The race is played.

  • The winning ticket holders collect their money.

  • The winning owner is presented with their prize.


Q) How much will the minimum bets be on the night?


A) The average race night will charge a minimum £1 per bet, but you can spread bet, £2 on horse #1 and £2 on horse #5 to increase your chances of winning.


Remember the success of the race night will ultimately depend on the size of the crowd. So bring your friends, family, some dude from the bar.... the more the merrier.
