Newmarket’s Après Racing, the official after party, will return to both days of the Festival with some big name acts still to be announced – so watch this space! Remember, kids under 18 go FREE both days and they will never be bored with the selection of on course entertainment in the Grandstand and Paddock and Family Enclosures including inflatables, face painting, Rowley’s Kids Club and much more.
Newmarket Racecourses are counting down the days to the start of the 2017 season. Featuring a whole host of events for racegoers to enjoy throughout April and May, here is more information on the nine days of racing on offer this spring;
The Spring Meeting – Thursday, 18th (evening) to Saturday, 20th May
Thursday really is the new Friday at Newmarket’s Spring Meeting with the first of this three-day Meeting taking place on Thursday, 18th May. The first race is off at 5.50pm; the perfect excuse to leave the office on time and head to the Rowley Mile to enjoy a fantastic evening’s racing as the sun sets over the Newmarket Heath.
Friday’s afternoon card is sponsored by a range of local companies at the annual Newmarket Business Day and Saturday of the Spring Meeting, the final day on the Rowley Mile before switching to the Adnams July Course for summer, is ‘Newcomer Day’ at Newmarket Racecourses.
This offers a great opportunity for those not so familiar with the Sport of Kings, as well as first-time, younger racegoers, to experience the thrill of the races with an interactive and informative format to the day. There will be family entertainment on course too, including inflatables, face painting and Rowley’s Kids Club as well as a number of activities to give first-time visitors an insight into the sport.
Don’t forget that kids under the age of 18 come FREE on all three days so it’s great value for everyone.
