We can’t wait to welcome you back to Epsom Downs Racecourse from 4 June.

 

Your raceday experience may be slightly different this summer.

 

With excitement on the track and a colourful spectacle all around we promise to look after you from the moment you arrive. With our facilities being regularly cleaned and our racecourse staff trained to comply will all current guidance, you can rest assured that we will do our utmost to make your day as enjoyable and safe as possible.

When you return things will probably look a little different to your last racecourse visit but we have been racing safely behind closed doors for many months. We have been in close liaison throughout with our industry colleagues, sporting authorities, and the Government to share best practice and continue to provide a safe environment for your return to live racing.

WHAT TO WEAR

 

If you are coming to the races you may be wondering what to wear. Our general style guide is applicable on all racedays except both days of The Derby Festival.

 

All race meetings (including music nights), excluding The Derby Festival, have the Queen's Stand and Duchess's Stand open as one area that racegoers can freely move between.

The Stands

 

We advise dressing for the weather and smart shorts, smart denim jeans, and trainers are acceptable. Jeans are required to not have tears or rips, and we advise no sports shorts, sleeveless vests or bare tops will be permitted.

 

It is not required to wear a hat or fascinator, although you may wish to wear a fedora or similar at our colder fixtures. A smart lightweight jacket or blazer is also a popular choice when considering extra layers.

 

music nights

 

These fixtures include an early evening of racing followed by live music, so the dresscode is the same as a usual raceday. However, if you'd like to dress in the theme of the entertainment after racing, this is encouraged. 

 

Fancy dress is permitted as long as the outfit is not offensive and we reserve the right to decline entry should the need arise. If your party is considering wearing fancy dress and you aren't sure it is suitable, we recommend you call the racecourse on 01372 726 311 in advance to avoid any disappointment on the day.

It is not a requirement that hats or fascinators are worn on any racedays outside The Derby Festival.
