FAMILY FUN DAY – PLUS SEE PETER RABBIT™

Tickets are now only available on the gate.

 

This Easter Holiday, make sure that you join us for a very special family day at the Rowley Mile.

 

We will be joined by the one and only Peter Rabbit who will be appearing during Story Time sessions, led by a narrator, at intervals throughout the day. Children will also be able to take part in Peter Rabbit’s activity trail, exploring the Racecourse as they hunt for clues!

 

We will also have a host of family activities including inflatables, face painting, and our #FashionEaster competition (please details below).

 

The feature race on day three is The bet365 Earl of Sefton Stakes. Formerly the Rubbing House Stakes, it is a one mile, one furlong Group 3 contest, open to thoroughbreds aged four years old and over.

 

Please note, there has been a change to the order of running in 2019 - The Craven Stakes will be run on Wednesday 17th April. 

#FashionEaster

 

Children are being encouraged to get creative in the holidays and bring their own Easter bonnet to the first family race day of the season as #SpringStarts at the home of horseracing!

 

In a child friendly spin on traditional Ladies Day hats, children can take part in a FashionEaster competition at the Rowley Mile Racecourse on the third day of the bet365 Craven Meeting, Thursday 18th April, with under 18s benefiting from free entry. The overall winner and two runners-up will share Hotel Chocolat goodies worth £150, Selfie t-shirts and a Royal Mint 50p keepsake featuring Peter Rabbit, who will be presenting the prizes himself!
