Half Term Family Fun RacedayWednesday 22nd February 2017

Kids go FREE!

Tons of FREE fun for the whole family including Flashy Faces Face Painters, Emily’s Disco, fairground rides and much more! 

With only a matter of days until the first school holiday of the year, thoughts of parents, guardians, grandparents and carers are sure to turn towards keeping the children entertained.

So if you are looking to give the children a day out to remember this half term, why not seize the opportunity to introduce them to the sport of horse racing. It’s a hugely popular pastime in Yorkshire with nine courses in the county, including Doncaster –  the setting for a fantastic family fun day on Wednesday 22nd February.

“Our family fun days are always very popular and are a superb opportunity for a very enjoyable day out for young and old alike,” said Abby Chandler Marketing Manager Doncaster Racecourse. “Grandstand tickets are just £10 for the opportunity to experience a race card packed with quality racing and lots of activities for children to enjoy both on the course and inside our family friendly facilities.”

During the day there will be a range of free activities including a selection of fairground rides, face painters, a colouring station and children’s disco which provides fun, interactive entertainment with prizes to be won!

“This event is also supported by ‘Great British Racing’ who are actively encouraging younger generations to discover every element of horse racing from choosing it as a career to enjoying it as a spectator sport perhaps even owning a race horse one day,” said Abby. “Just a handful of meetings remain of the 2016/17 National Hunt season at Doncaster so this fixture allows everyone to enjoy the thrill of ‘the jumps’.”

All children under 18 receive free entry to the course when accompanied with a paying adult.
