We celebrate the return of our summer evening race series with our Gin Festival, the launch of our Gin Thursdays!

There will be sampling from Warner, Chase, Bombay Sapphire, Lumber’s Bartholomew Craft Gin and Oxi-Botanicals throughout the evening, alongside 30 different gins and acoustic live music.

An evening of exciting races and gin will be complemented by our Resident DJ who will be playing on our Crafty Filly Terrace until late.

If you’ve never been racing before this evening provides a great opportunity to experience what the Racecourse has to offer. So get a group of friends or colleagues together and enjoy a cracking evening of great racing and entertainment!
