When you need to blow away the cobwebs after all the Christmas over-indulgence, what could be more perfect than a day at the races at Fontwell Park?
The Fontwell Christmas meeting is a firm favourite with people looking for a family fun day out on Boxing Day, and they flock to this special corner of the West Sussex countryside.
Theres a wonderfully relaxed feel to the occasion as you enjoy some welcome fresh air and additional entertainment to make this a great day out with the kids. We'll be joined by festive Nutcracker drummers prior to racing and the incredible living Baubles will be hard to miss as they skate around Fontwell Park. No festive event is complete without a polar bear* and we've got one visiting who you'll definitely want to meet, don't worry he won't bite!
Youll also be able to enjoy several top-class races. This is one of the best Fontwell Park horse racing fixtures on the calendar, a day that delivers entertainment for the whole family.
Get ready to enjoy every roar and cheer with friends and family and dont miss another moment together. Your safety is our priority and all events will be run in accordance with the latest government advice and guidelines. Visit our news pages for the latest updates on what to expect.
