Newmarket Racecourses celebrates the end of the 2018 racing season with Bonfire Night themed finale

Tuesday 30 October 2018

Newmarket Racecourses will close the 2018 racing season with the family-friendly two-day Final Meeting at the Rowley Mile on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 November, with the final day offering a celebratory Bonfire Night theme.

Competitive racing on the track will be complemented by entertainment and activities for all the family over the two days.

As Bonfire Night approaches, Newmarket Racecourses are getting in the spirit by giving racegoers the opportunity to vote for the best Guy in the Best Guy Competition. A selection of Guys made by the team at Newmarket Racecourses will be on display, and you can choose your favourite by making a donation to Racing Welfare in the buckets provided.

A special treat is in store for anyone named Guy as they can gain entry to racing on Saturday for one penny with Newmarket Racecourse’s Penny for a Guy offer. To claim this offer, racegoers need simply email with a scanned form of identification attached.

Children will be able to enjoy the very last Rowley’s Kids Club Activity Zone of the season, face painters and inflatables. On Saturday, kids will be also able to try traditional apple bobbing and feast on Bonfire Night treats including toffee apples. The racecourse will also be celebrating the end of the gold season by inviting youngsters to help complete an autumn leaves mural.

Saturday’s raceday also sees the introduction of a special family hospitality experience to celebrate Newmarket Racecourses’ final meeting of 2018. The Family Finale Experience includes a two-course meal in a shared hospitality suite with impeccable views of the track, Hospitality and Premier Admission badges and a celebrity tipster for the adults. Children will be kept entertained with a magician; arts, crafts and children’s games; and appearances from Newmarket Racecourses’ mascot, Rowley. In addition, children will go home with a complimentary gift bag. Tickets for this exclusive and limited experience are priced at £15.00 for children and £60.00 for adults.

Friday of The Final Meeting also offers up seven exciting races, a number of different hospitality options and packages to suit different budgets, and various bars and restaurants to savour delicious drinks and delicacies in between races. The perfect day out for colleagues, friends or clients, why not take advantage of the autumn sun for Newmarket’s last weekday race of 2018 with a table in the award-winning Champions Gallery Restaurant?
