Coming to the Ladbrokes Christmas Festival?


All you need to know about two days of quality racing on 26th and 27th December 2020.

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.

You can book parking online at the time of purchasing a ticket. Parking sold out in advance for King George VI Chase Day in 2019, so we advise booking early. We also provide a free Park and Ride service on this day.


On the 27th December, parking is available to purchase online at the time of booking a ticket, or upon arrival at the racecourse.

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.

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 Park and accompanied under 18s are free of charge. All children require a ticket. 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 free face painting, Christmas crafts and a pantomime for the children on the 27th.

You cannot view the racing from the centre of the course.

Please be aware due to large crowd sizes and safety across the racecourse, only assistance dogs are allowed to enter.

Unfortunately, there are no concessions or discounted tickets available for the Ladbrokes Christmas Festival. We advise you book in advance to secure your tickets at the best price.

There are no overground trains on Boxing Day.


On the 27th December there is no train service to Kempton Park due to the RMT Industrial Action. Please check before before travelling.

Underground services run throughout the Christmas period, the nearest tube stations to Kempton Park are Richmond, Kew and Hatton Cross. Bus services run in the local area, please check for timings.


Please note there is no shuttle bus running from Kew station this year. 

There is availability in the Premier, Paddock and Festival Enclosures over the Ladbrokes Christmas Festival. Please be advised there is limited availability for the Premier Enclosure on Boxing Day, so we recommend booking in advance.


See our handy Guide to Enclosures to see which is best for you.

Annual members are invited to purchase a Premier Enclosure badge on the gate and then make their way to the Racecourse Office where it will be exchanged for a Clubhouse badge.
