Saturday 11 December

SATURDAY AT THE INTERNATIONAL

 

The second day of The International Meeting on Saturday 11 December is another fixture that isn't to be missed, and we will be getting in the Festive spirit with Christmas Carols and Live Music.

 

With clues for The Festival appearing in every race, there's plenty to get excited about with JCB Triumph Trial Juvenile Hurdle, The Racing Post December Gold Cup, the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle and the Unibet International Hurdle.

 

Winners of those races include real fan favourites such as The New One, Cogry and Fusil Raffles, but who will be adding their name to our honours boards in 2021?

 

Got2Sing will get the Christmas party started with Christmas Carols on the Centaur Balcony as you enter the racecourse, you will then be able to catch them later in the day on the North Plaza - a perfect area to get racegoers involved in a Christmas sing-a-long.

 

As well as a fantastic variety of food and drink across the racecourse we will be offering a complimentary mulled wine and minced pie to racegoers on the North Plaza.

 

There will also be live Jazz music throughout the day from The Hipcats who will roam club/tattersalls enclosure and head to The Centaur after the last race to see The Wickermen from 3.45pm - 4.45pm.

 

COME DRESSED IN YOUR CHRISTMAS JUMPER!

With only two weeks until Christmas, get into the festive spirit by wearing your best Christmas jumper! We will have spotters around the racecourse who will choose any Christmas outfits they think are worthy winners and will award them with complimentary food and drink vouchers to be used at the racecourse.

 

Please note: We are a cashless venue. On-course betting facilities will take cash and there are cash machines on site.

  • Observe social distancing where practicable and enjoy the vast amounts of space around the racecourse and avoid congregating in busy areas. 
  • Be Covid-19 double vaccinated and any booster when offered, depending on personal circumstances, or undertake a Lateral Flow Test 48 hours prior to the raceday to identify positive cases. 
  • If you feel you may be experiencing any of the recognised symptoms of Covid-19, please put on a face covering and speak to a member of staff in a well-ventilated area.
