And they’re off! ALEP night at the races is the winning ticket!

Last week ALEP held its highly-anticipated Night at the Races at Kempton Park Racecourse.  

More than 70 member firms and VIPs were at the heart of the action in the private Desert Orchid suite which provided fantastic views overlooking the racecourse. The evening proved to be one of ALEP’s most popular networking events where guests enjoyed a night of betting, fabulous food and fizz. A few lucky ALEP members got lucky and left with their winnings in hand!  

ALEP’s Night at the Races was made possible thanks to sponsors Kerry London, Anthony Gold Solicitors.
