Back by popular demand, you and your friends are invited to a free open evening at Ascot. The secrets of the racecourse will be revealed along with everything you need to know from the top horses to the top hats!
By the end of the night you will be an expert in the basics, know your way around your local racecourse and be equipped with simple tips on how to make the most of your day at the races. There will even be a sneak preview into what’s hot to wear this season for all of your summer engagements.
The Newcomers and Novices Show
A fun and insightful look at the racecourse; a typical day, the simple basics, and a top ten of things to do – all you really need to know!
Ask The Expert Area
Experts will be available to give advice on racecourse etiquette, how to spot a winning horse, top jockeys to look out for and how to read a racecard. The tote will provide simple guides to betting for the uninitiated and Ascot representatives will be on hand to answer any questions about planning a day at the races; where to go, what to do, where to eat, picnics and dress code.
Explore the Racecourse
A unique opportunity to explore the Ascot Grandstand as we open mareas which are not usually accessible to the public. Everything from the Parade Ring, Weighing Room and Jockeys’ Changing Rooms to a Private Box and the Royal Ascot Racing Club.
A short introduction on what’s hot to wear this season and this year’s Ascot summer style.
Guests who book tickets for any raceday on the night will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a table for four in one of our top restaurants on any raceday in July.
So please come and enjoy some light refreshments as you take a relaxed and informal look behind the scenes at The World’s Most Famous Racecourse, in this, its historic tercentenary year.
