Christmas Family Raceday at Ascot Racecourse

About

This festive two-day finale offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate with family, friends or colleagues as the holidays begin in earnest.

Festive menus, winter cocktails, mulled wine, brass bands, complimentary mince pies and a spectacularly decorated Grandstand provide a perfect excuse to leave the office early. Hospitality Packages available.

On the track, the jumps racing card offers competitive action as the build-up to March’s Cheltenham Festival intensifies.

The equine stars of the future contest a pair of Grade 2 races. The Sky Bet Supreme Trial Novices’ Hurdle and the Mitie Novices’ Chase are prestigious prizes that often prove to be seasonal stepping-stones.

Ascot Racecourse Christmas Family Raceday Saturday 22 December 2018

Ascot racecourse invites families to celebrate the festive season, together with world-class horse racing and plenty of seasonal cheer, just three days before Christmas Day.

Featuring the most valuable racecard of Ascot’s Jumps season, the event promises to be exhilarating and enjoyable for all ages with fairground rides, a festive parade, clip clop pony rides, huskies and candle-lit carol singing.

On the track, highlights are two £150,000 races; the ultra-competitive Wessex Youth Trust Handicap Hurdle and the Grade 1 JLT Long Walk Hurdle – one of the most prestigious long-distance hurdle races in Britain. Punters could be in with the chance to earn an extra Christmas bonus with the many high-class supporting races throughout the day.

Off the track, adults can watch the races whilst enjoying festive cocktails and Fine Dining across multiple food outlets. Little ones will be entertained with the The Elf Training Academy, a husky meet & greet, festive arts and crafts and face painting. Father Christmas and his fellow reindeer will be in attendance and Mrs Claus’ storytelling will return for a third year. The whole family can also enjoy free fairground rides and uplifting carol singing by candlelight in the Grandstand with the Ascot Brass Band.

Under 18s attend the event for FREE when accompanied by a paying adult with under 12s eating free of charge. Gates open at 10:45am with the festive parade up Ascot High Street and into the Parade Ring taking place at 11:30am – families are advised to secure their spot by 11:15am for the best views in the house.
