Local community treat this Friday as Newmarket Racecourses celebrates Summer Family Fun Day with added CB postcode discount


Tuesday 21 August 2018



Newmarket Racecourses will be hosting their Summer Family Fun Day on 24 August, which this year features an extensive community offer: discounted tickets for anyone living in a CB area postcode.

Anyone living within the CB area can buy Grandstand and Paddock tickets for just £10 and Premier Enclosure tickets for just £15, so racing fans and families looking for a family-friendly day out are in for a treat before the children head back to school.

As well as fantastic action on the track there will be a whole host of entertainment in the Garden Enclosure. Going back to school has never been more fun as there will be ‘back to school’ games including skipping, hopscotch, hula-hoops, egg and spoon races, sack races and classic games including ‘What’s the Time Mr Wolf’ and ‘Simon Says’. Children can also play on a mini bouncy castle, a Gladiator duel game and try sumo suits on for size; while Rowley’s Kids Club will offer a range of activities all day long, including colouring and puzzles.

With a seven-race card over the course of the day, there is plenty of thrilling racing to enjoy on the penultimate day of racing on the Adnams July Course this summer, before the action returns to the Rowley Mile in September.

Whether you’re a seasoned racegoer or have never been to experience the Sport of Kings before, this exciting Summer Family Fun Day is sure to delight.

Amy Starkey, Regional Director, Jockey Club Racecourses East Region, said: “After the success of our community day at the Craven Meeting in the spring, we decided to celebrate the August Bank Holiday weekend by hosting an extensive community offer on our Summer Family Fun Day. All those who live within the wider CB postcode area can purchase discounted tickets and enjoy a fantastic day of racing and entertainment.

“With the summer holidays coming to end, there is no better way to spend time with the family than on the picturesque Adnams July Course; and under 18s go free, making our Summer Family Fun Day brilliant value and a great day out.”
