Coming to the Ladbrokes Christmas Festival?
All you need to know about two days of quality racing on 26th and 27th December 2019.
For the Ladbrokes Christmas Festival there are three Enclosures; the Premier Enclosure, Paddock Enclosure and Festival Enclosure. Read the Guide to Enclosures for more information.
For the Christmas Festival the Ticket Collection Point is by the South entrance in the main car park accessed by Gate 3. Customers should be advised to use the Park & Ride if they are collecting tickets on the day. You cannot park on site and then collect tickets.
There is a station at Kempton Park, but there are no mainline trains on Boxing Day. Service resumes on 27th December. Please check the train times before travelling.
There is an underground service running but you will need to take a taxi from the tube station to Kempton Park.
Gates open at 10am on Ladbrokes King George Day on the 26th and 10.30am on the 27th. The racecourse will be busy so we advise arriving early.
The Premier & Paddock enclosures give a view of the pre-parade ring, the parade ring and winners enclosure. The Premier Enclosure has a viewing balcony.
No, there will be no access and there will be stands on the inside of the course.
You can book parking in advance on-site at the same time as purchasing a ticket, but it's selling fast. We offer free parking in the centre of the course, accessible via Gate 6 on the A308 (Staines Road East). If parking here, please note course crossings close 30 minutes before racing starts and re-open 30 minutes after the last race.
We also provide a free Park & Ride service from the BP site on Cadbury Road (TW16 7LN for your Sat Nav) which is approximately ten minutes from the racecourse, with buses running all morning and then re-commencing after the last race.
Our dress code is smart casual – we would advise you to dress for the weather. Only badly torn denim and football shirts are discouraged.
Children are always welcome at Kempton and accompanied under 18s are free of charge. All children require a ticket. If purchasing reserved seats then children are £20 each for the seat. However, this is an extremely busy meeting and moving around the racecourse with small children is not easy due to the volume of the crowd. We have no crèche facilities. There is little children's entertainment on the 27th but none at all on the 26th.
Please be aware due to large crowd sizes and safety across the racecourse, only assistance dogs are allowed to enter.
Annual members can purchase a Clubhouse guest badge in advance only by calling the Racecourse Office.
Annual members also have a preferential price for pre-booking seats again by calling the Racecourse Office on 0344 579 3008.
