Wincanton Racecourse

what to wear to a day at Wincanton races

As we race largely during the winter months, the weather can be unpredictable, so we would advise you to dress accordingly.


Our bigger meetings such as Badger Chase Day, Boxing Day and Kingwell Hurdle do see Ladies wearing hats and Gentlemen wearing suits or similar as part of the occasion. 


For the Premier, Grandstand and Course enclosures, there is no specific dress code but it is preferred no sports shorts or denim shorts.


Fancy dress is permitted as long as the outfit is not offensive, and at our discretion, we reserve the right to decline entry should the need arise. Fancy dress is not permitted in Hospitality or restaurant facilities, or our Premier Enclosure. If your party is considering wearing fancy dress, and in order to avoid any disappointment on the day, we recommend that you call the racecourse 01963 435 840 in advance. 


Please be aware that the above also applies to T-shirts carrying slogans that cause offense again on either religious, sexual or political grounds to other racegoers. In the event of one or all of your party being refused admission no refund will be offered.


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us directly.
