Children are very welcome at our racedays and can attend most fixtures free of charge when accompanied by an adult of 18+. Children’s tickets are subject to availability and may be limited at high demand fixtures.
Under 18 tickets can be added to your basket for free when purchasing an adult ticket, except for a limited number of racedays when child tickets must be paid for.
For Newmarket Nights
As Newmarket Nights are our Friday evening racing plus music events with the artist taking to the stage at any time from 8pm, our recommendation is that Newmarket Nights are not suitable for children under 18.
Whilst we recommend that these events are not suitable for children under 18, if you do wish to bring them as part of your party, at your discretion, they can attend as long as they possess a valid full price ticket to gain entry and there is a responsible adult of 18+ and above to every two children 17 and under.
We take every precaution to try and ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time at all of our events. If you do decide to bring a child under 18, we would suggest against taking them into the most densely crowded areas, which includes the large area in front of the stage.
Newmarket Racecourses have a range of family-friendly events throughout the summer, including our popular Summer Saturdays' series whereby children under 18 are permitted free (when accompanied by an adult of 18+), this excludes Newmarket Nights.
It is your responsibility to check the suitability of an event for any children in your party regardless of official age restrictions, this includes considering the type of audience the event is likely to attract and whether such an audience is a suitable environment for children in your party. Refunds will not be issued if any aspect of an event, including the behaviour of other audience members, causes offence to you or any children on whose behalf you have purchased tickets.
We do not recommend subjecting babies and young children to loud music. If you purchase tickets for children we recommend they wear hearing protection if you decide to bring them. A concert environment is not suitable for very young children.
