Chester Racecourse launch competition for budding presenters

Chester Racecourse is on the hunt for a talented presenter who will help promote this year’s Boodles May Festival, which takes place from 7 – 9 May.

The winning host will work with Chester’s talented film crew to produce a short morning preview programme, which will be distributed before racing via the racecourse’s social media channels.  The videos will showcase all-important elements of a day at the races, including fashion, lifestyle features, competitions and other unique raceday content.

Aspiring anchors are being encouraged to produce and upload a short video focusing on their passion onto YouTube*. The selected presenter will be given expert guidance from a professional presenter as part of the prize and will receive a show-reel of their highlights. 

Rebecca Masters, Marketing Manager at Chester racecourse said; “We’re really excited to be offering someone this unique opportunity to be part of a buzzing festival and to bring to life, the three day Boodles May Festival to racegoers via social media.  We anticipate some great entries for this opportunity but really encourage anyone with a passion for lifestyle, racing or TV to enter.”
