Dinner with Mike Torpey, Grand National Preview

April 5 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm


April 5th 2024 @ 6:30 pm – 11:00 pm

13th April 2024 will see the 176th running of the world’s greatest steeplechase – the Randox Grand National – at Aintree Racecourse.

To mark the event we are welcoming local journalist and Grand National expert Mike Torpey, who will talk to us about the history of this event, which has been central to the life of our city – and many of our Proprietors – since it was first held a few miles away from the club.

Mike Torpey is a distinguished author and journalist specialising in cars and horses. For many years he was the Liverpool Echo’s racing correspondent and tipster. He is a knowledgeable and very entertaining speaker. Expect to learn new facts about the race as well as fascinating (and sometimes scurrilous) stories about horses, jockeys, bookies and punters. You might even come away with a tip for the big race.

Join us for a celebration of one of the biggest events of the year. Mike’s talk will be followed by a delicious three course meal prepared by our Executive Chef (menu to be published soon).

The dress code for this event is ‘lounge suit’ (jackets and ties for gentlemen).
