Howden Christmas Racing Weekend | Santa at Ascot Racecourse

About

‘Tis the season for high-quality Jumps racing and festive fun at Ascot’s final race meeting of the year.

Friday is the perfect day to enjoy thrilling racing, festive food and winter cocktails. While on Saturday, there is something for the whole family.

Complementing the Grade One Howden Long Walk Hurdle are an abundance of seasonal treats from around the world, traditional fairground rides, face painting and festive arts and crafts. Father Christmas and his reindeer will be in attendance and Mrs Christmas will return for her much-loved storytelling before the candle-lit carol singing finale.
