Kids go Free to Family Raceday at Plumpton

The sport of kings is now the sport for kids too. Plumpton Racecourse’s first meeting of the 2013-14 season takes place on Sunday 22nd September with an action-packed programme of family entertainments on the Family Raceday sponsored by and free entry for accompanied children under 18.

Plumpton Racecourse has undergone a redevelopment of its Parade Ring and main entrance area over the summer break which will be unveiled and officially opened at 12.30pm.

With admission prices starting from only £10 for Adults with kids FREE, it’s a great value day out for all the family.  There is plenty for children of all ages to see and do including all the excitement of a day at the races, funfair, face painting, Sussex Peggers display, the Sussex Wildlife Trust, Retraining of Racehorses display and a host of other themed entertainments.

Family Day is an ideal day to bring the family racing. It has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, and many racegoers enjoy bringing their own picnics into the centre of the course for a day out in the glorious Sussex countryside. You can book a table in advance in the Paddock or Marquee Restaurant for a delicious 3 course lunch, or choose from a selection of food outlets.

A raceday host will be on hand to guide you through the day’s racing with features and interviews through the afternoon from the parade ring, and there’s a tipster panel before racing to help you pick some winning selections.

The family fun day is on Sunday 22nd September. Doors open at 11.30am, with the first race at 2.30pm. Adult Admission is only £10 into the Picnic Enclosure or £14 into the Grandstand and Paddock including a free race programme when purchased in advance, and entry is free for all accompanied under 18s.
