Here are the key timings to help you plan your day. We recommend arriving early, as it's a busy event and we have exciting new bars and food outlets to explore, which all open as gates do.

Gates open: 11.00am 

First race: 12.45pm

Last race: 3.30pm

live music

We were delighted to welcome talented artists from London's Roundhouse, who entertained racegoers live in Surrey Hall before the first race. Brilliant performances included Sophie Kilburn's entrancing vocals and Celine Love's soulful folk and pop, as well as some Christmas classics with a twist.
