Summer Family Funday


Our ‘oh, I do like to be beside the seaside’ family funday was so popular last year we just had to bring it back again this Summer!

Join us for a jam-packed afternoon filled with activities and games including Punch and Judy, donkey rides, sand pit, bouncy castles, face painting and much, much more.

Not only will there be lots of activities around the racecourse to keep the kids entertained but they’ll be able to watch exciting live-action horse racing right from the trackside! Head to the Parade Ring ahead of each race and watch the jockeys mount their horse and pick out which one you think will be a winner. Then, once each race is over make your way to the Winner’s Enclosure where you’ll be able to get closer to the winning horse and runner ups.
