Liverpool’s first Grand National Weights Lunch
The Grand National weights lunch will for the first time in history be held in Liverpool.
During the First World War the Grand National was temporarily held at London Gatwick. This lunch celebrates 100 years since the Grand National returned to Aintree.
The Grade II listed Cunard Building located at the Pier Head will play host to the prestigious lunch. Set to take place on February 12th 2019, it will be a celebration of the great city.
The highly anticipated event will reveal the Randox Health Grand National weights for 2019.
Liverpool’s wider contribution to music and sport will also be a main focus of the day. There will be plenty to be proud of and celebrate all around Liverpool.
Previously the weights lunch has been hosted at iconic London venues such as the Royal Opera House. John Baker said he “felt delighted to bring the weights lunch home”. He also stated the people of Liverpool have helped shape the Grand National into the worlds greatest steeplechase.
The 2017 weights cocktail evening received major news coverage due to the changes. However many complained about the poor acoustics of the event.
The 2018 weights reveal was an affair fit for a movie star. The Grand National descended on Bafta headquarters in Piccadilly. The event took place a few days before the highly anticipated British Academy Film Awards. The 2019 event is set to be even more special.
The 2018 Grand National weights reveal placed Definitly Red at the top at 165 but who will come out on top in 2019? There is no doubt that trainers will be on tenterhooks as they anticipate the results.
