Venue Etiquette


Relaxed Atmosphere

The relaxed nature at Fontwell Park carries through to our requirements for dress code. Most importantly, please remember to dress for the weather because Fontwell Park holds race meetings all year round and conditions can vary. However, we do hold a smart casual policy for The Premier Enclosure and Hospitality suites.

The Land & Power Premier Enclosure and Hospitality Suites

Men should wear collared shirts. A tie is not essential. Smart jeans and tailored shorts are acceptable (they must not be ripped or torn). We do not permit jogging bottoms, fancy dress, sports or beach wear, non-tailored shorts and trainers. Many customers opt to dress for the occasion on feature race days.

The Grandstand and Paddock Enclosure

There is no dress code in this enclosure, however, any offensive clothing will not be tolerated and may be asked to be covered up.


There is no dress code for children in either enclosure.

Feature Racedays

Many customers choose to dress for the occasion on feature race days however this is not a requirement. Some racedays may include a best-dressed competition which may include a fancy dress or glamour theme. For example the popular Christmas Jumper Competition at our Festive Raceday or the Best Dressed Lady competition at Ladies Evening.

Fancy Dress

Fancy dress is only permitted in the Paddock and Grandstand enclosure. Many people choose to come in fancy dress for some of our feature days such as St Patrick’s Raceday or for stag and hen parties. Please avoid any offensive dress as this will not be tolerated and you may be refused entry.
