Boxing Day Racing

Tue 26 Dec

Please note: Private hospitality boxes have now SOLD OUT for this fixture.

It’s been said that Boxing Day racing is part of the fabric of English life. A wonderful tradition that takes place all over the country.

The gates at Fontwell will open on Boxing Day morning for the Sussex ritual as thousands of racegoers escape the chaotic Christmas celebrations. A wonderful chance to get some fresh air and walk off the Christmas pudding!

These meetings are not just about horses. They are family occasions where people mingle and socialise with old friends in the depths of winter. To cater for this, Fontwell will have plenty going on outside of the 7 exhilarating races. The site will be transformed into a winter wonderland with Reindeers, an Ice Rink and Festive food and beverages, as well as plenty of games stalls!

The atmosphere and cheers continue throughout the day as the 2nd most prestigious race in England, The King George VI Chase is played on the big screen for everyone to see.

Tickets start from £19 when booked in advanced. The Premier admission tickets are likely to sell out so please book early to avoid disappointment!

Centre course parking on this fixture is FREE of charge, so it is operated on a first come, first serve basis. Please be aware that the centre course is all grass, so please ensure you wear the appropriate footwear.

Hospitality starts from as little as £79, but hurry as restaurants are likely to sell out fast!
