Market Rasen Racecourse
19th May 2019
Fun for all the family!
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, take part in best dressed competitions and listen to live music. 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.
The racecourse is working with AGE UK, 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.
