Regrettably, the condition of the ground following heavy rainfall now means that the Open Course enclosure and Open Course car park will be closed on both days of the Autumn Festival - Friday 15 & Saturday 16 September.
If you have pre-purchased an Open Course ticket for either day, it will be valid for the Dee Enclosure, accessible via Gates 7 & 8.
If you would prefer a full refund, please retain your ticket and contact the Box Office on 01244 304 600 from Monday 18 September. Refunds will not be processed before this date and you will be required to return your tickets (undamaged) to Chester Racecourse in person to the Box Office or by post to the following address: Chester Racecourse Box Office, The Racecourse, Chester, CH1 2LY.
The Open Course Car Park will also be closed and we recommend that racegoers use the Park & Ride (Wrexham Road). Buses operate every 12 minutes between 8am and 7pm. Information, including timetables can be found here. Return tickets cost £2 per adult and up to two children can travel free if accompanied by an adult.
If you have pre-purchased parking, please contact the Box Office for more information - 01244 304 600.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. We look forward to welcoming all racegoers at the Autumn Festival,
