Market Rasen Racecourse

19th May 2019

This raceday has now passed, click here view our upcoming racedays at Market Rasen Racecourse.

ALL THE FUN OF THE 1940s without the rationing!

 

Join us for a day to remember the part that Lincolnshire played in the Second World War, including the county’s setting as the ‘Home of the RAF’, the work of the Home Guard and the importance of agriculture and ‘Digging For Victory’ during the conflict.

As well as exciting jump racing, you will be able to look over vintage vehicles, browse the trade stands, watch re-enactment displays and join in Lindy Hop dancing with Music from May Blossom. Even the food menus will have a wartime theme, while there will be bunting, colour and street jive dancing to represent the VE Day celebrations which took place on 8th May 1945 as fighting in Europe finally came to an end.

 

BEST DRESSED COMPETITIONS

There is no dress code, but visitors are being encouraged to come along in period dress, with prizes being awarded for the best dressed lady, gentleman and child! 

 

And the entertainment doesnt stop there! Visit the display and cockpit from the Market Rasen Air Cadets, visit the Rase Heritage WW2 display and the Living History Display which includes ukulele player, camping & evacuee display, RAF motorcycle, RAF Jeeps and the impressive Borf Gun! And get the whole family involved with Vintage Fairground Stalls including coconut shy, hook a duck, ball in a bucket, high sticker, splat a rat and cactus lasso not forgetting The Neigh & Play Garden! 

 

The racecourse is working with AGE UK Lindsey, the racecourse’s charity of the year from June 2019, and Lincolnshire museums and trusts to deliver the 1940s day for the enjoyment of the public.
