Ascot Racecourse is delighted to announce a star studded line-up for its Family Fun Day on Sunday 24th July to complement the superb Flat racing action on the track. Scotty the Ascot Mascot will be joined by Peppa Pig and George, Ben and Holly from their Little Kingdom, Fireman Sam and Scooby Doo.
The Betfair Weekend Family Fun Day is a colorful spectacle that offers something for everyone, with a combination of thrilling racing action and free entertainment for the children. The day is aimed at our younger audience where they can meet the characters from some of their favourite TV shows including Ben and Holly from their Little Kingdom, Scooby Doo and his wacky Roller Coaster and Fireman Sam along with his fireman friends and real fire engine. A highlight of the afternoon will be Peppa Pig and her little brother George telling stories in the Bandstand.
Vicky Glenister, Marketing Manager of Ascot Racecourse, enthused, ‘We are delighted to be joined by such prestigious company, especially in light of the fact that Peppa has been crowned the UK’s bestselling pre-school toy of 2010, overtaking Thomas the Tank Engine for the first time’.
All activities, including face painting and fairground rides, are free of charge and ideal for the under 10’s. Adult tickets to the Family Day start from £17 with a 10% saving if booked in advance and are available by calling 0870 727 1234 or by visiting www.ascot.co.uk
