Guests decked out in their scariest costumes, from witches to vampires, were treated to a feast of fun and games, including pumpkin carving, a fancy dress competition and a ghost train.

There were prizes available for the best dressed, the best carved pumpkin and even the spookiest family. A funfair featuring plenty of rides kept the youngsters entertained while a beer tent enticed the older guests.

The evening, which was organised by the Jockey Club and supported by the Hunts Post, was capped with a sparkling firework display over the racecourse.
