Thursday 26th December

Thu 26 Dec

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

Our gates 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!

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!
