BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE

We’re looking forward to welcoming back live music to Newmarket and the atmosphere that it will create, something that we know so many of you have missed over recent months and will be looking forward to experiencing again.

 

We recognise that it’s been a long time since most people were around others in significant numbers, so we wanted to explain what you can expect on the night. Although there are a number of changes to restrictions in England which take effect from July 19th, we will continue to encourage you to take a number of steps to prioritise your safety and wellbeing:

 

  • While government restrictions have been lifted we all have a personal responsibility to make choices to protect the health of ourselves and those around us
  • We recommend all spectators take regular lateral flow tests to help manage the ongoing risk of transmitting Covid 19 and to vaccinate where possible to maximise protection to fellow racegoers and staff working at the fixture.
  • There will be an NHS QR code at entry to the racecourse and we encourage you to check in via the NHS app.
  • Please do not attend this event if you are experiencing any symptoms commonly associated with Covid 19 or if you are self-isolating or have been in close contact with someone who has recently tested positive.
  • We recommend that spectators wear a face covering when in crowded areas and when indoors
  • Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the site and you should take care to wash your hands regularly
  • All spectators are asked to be considerate around making space for those around them
  • Our courses are cashless, with the exception of the on course Bookmakers
  • You are no longer required to be seated to enjoy food and drink while on a racecourse
  • The venue is largely an outdoors venue, so there will be plenty of good ventilation

 

Please take a look at our spectator code of conduct, which is in place across all Jockey Club racecourses. We are asking all attendees to read this in advance of the raceday.

 

It’s important to remember that it will be busier around the racecourse than we have been used to in recent times, a feeling which most us have not experienced for a while. While we appreciate that the majority will be enjoying this return of live music and the shared experience it creates, others might not adjust to these relaxing of restrictions in the same way.

 

If you begin to feel uncomfortable or are concerned for the wellbeing of someone else, please speak to one of our teams who will be on hand to help.

 

Once the concert has finished, we would appreciate you leaving calmly and quietly and respecting local residents.

We look forward to welcoming you to Newmarket Racecourses.

We’re looking forward to welcoming back live music to the July Course and the atmosphere that it will create, something that we know so many of you have missed over recent months and will be looking forward to experiencing again.

Following confirmation from the Government that outdoor gatherings can take place at full capacity, we’ve been working closely with Public Health teams and other local organisations to ensure our events will be both safe and enjoyable for everyone attending and in line with local and national guidance and we’re very much looking forward to welcoming you to Evening Racing followed by Tom Jones Live in Concert on Friday 23 July.

 

We recognise that it’s been a long time since most people were around others in significant numbers, so we wanted to get in touch to help explain what you can expect on the night.

 

Although there are a number of changes to restrictions in England which take effect from July 19th, we will continue to encourage you to take a number of steps to prioritise your safety and wellbeing:

  • The government have removed restrictions on the number of spectators who can attend sporting events outdoors. This event is therefore only limited by the normal venue capacity and we all have a personal responsibility to make choices to protect the health of ourselves and those around us.
  • There will be a lot of people attending this event. To reduce the chance of being caught in a large queue please consider arriving early and delaying your departure. Gates are open from two hours before first race and our bars and food concessions will remain open for up to an hour after the performance ends. There will also be a food/coffee unit in the white and orange car parks.
  • If you prefer to enjoy the concert in a less busy environment we will have the performance showing on our large screens in the Garden Enclosure and at the rear of the stage
  • Please think about your travel plans to and from the racecourse and allow plenty of time for your journey. You may want to consider pre-booking taxis. A free shuttle bus service will be in operation from Newmarket Train Station and the High Street, commencing two hours before the first race. The return journeys commence at the penultimate race. You can also book our Outrider Bus Service ahead of the day. Places are limited so we suggest booking ASAP via our website or calling 0344 579 3010/01638 675500 option 4.
