Newbury Racecourse’s brand-new Summer Evening Series – which includes three big raceday parties across July – continues with The Rum Shack on Thursday 13 July.

Rum cocktails, Caribbean cuisine and live reggae await!


An evening of thrilling flat racing is complemented by a whole host of festival-style food and drink, live music and a post-racing party courtesy of our resident DJ.

There promises to be nowhere better to spend a warm summer’s evening with family, friends and colleagues alike this year.

And of course, free parking and Newbury Racecourse’s on-site train station mean it couldn’t be easier to get and from this summer’s raceday parties.



We will be operating one enclosure.

Raceday Admission: Admission to all public areas, including the Premier Enclosure. These tickets are only available online until 11:59pm on Wednesday 12th July, after which point tickets will only be available on the gate.
