Kids Takeover Racing

Mon 06 May

An action-packed day of family fun is set to make for a thrilling Bank Holiday. It'll be all smiles as the kids enjoy all of the free family entertainment and you'll be smiling too as under 18s come in for free!

The whole family will love seeing the horse up-close in the Parade Ring before soaking up the atmosphere as your horse thunders down the home straight and across the finishing line. There'll be seven awesome races for everyone to enjoy plus plenty of free entertainment to keep little ones happy throughout the day. Plus, you can keep the great value going by bringing your own picnic into the designated family picnic zone.

More details of the free entertainment will be revealed soon but previous years activities have included inflatables, facepainting, crafts and Pony rides to name a few.

Save £7 with our early booking ticket! Available for a limited time only! Under 18's come racing for free.
