#StirrUpSummer | Chester Racecourse


If you’re looking for ways to spend quality time together over the summer holidays, then look no further than an action-packed day of racing at Chester!

A day at the races is packed with fun that the whole family will enjoy.

Experience the thrill of flat racing as you watch horses gallop past at full speed and listen to the sound of thundering hooves and cheering crowds fill the air generating a cheerful atmosphere.

But it’s not all about the racing; there are lots of other fun free activities going to keep younger racegoers entertained out on the Open Course.

Did you know… there are 60 racecourses spread across the UK, meaning you’re never far away from the action. Each racecourse is home to all types of fixtures and events and almost 1,500 British horse racing fixtures are hosted over 363 days.

Did you also know that Children (aged 17 and under) go free throughout the year to any racing fixture, at any course over the duration of the year! This makes for a great family day out that is also kind on your pocket and represents fantastic value for money.

Next up on the Roodee we have the Stella Artois Midsummer Meeting, Sat 29 July.

Following the success of City Plate Day, Chester Racecourse will once again be teaming up with Capital and DJs Rachael Rhodes and Josh Collins will be playing live DJ sets to entertain the crowds throughout the afternoon between racing.

In addition to all the action on the flat, Children can enjoy free activities out on the Open Course, with a climbing wall in operation throughout the afternoon, crafts for kids to make their very own Chester Racecourse crown, a circus skills workshop and there’s also a face painter on hand.

Tickets for adults on the Open Course are just £12. Parking is also available on the day for just £8 per car. All kids activities are provided free of charge!
