What’s on this summer at Royal Windsor Racecourse?

1296-1302The ever-popular Monday night racing is soon to be back at Royal Windsor Racecourse and following the season opener on Monday 13th April, the completely free evening fixture on Monday 20th April is set to start off the summer calendar of events, including Ronnie Scott’s, Gentleman’s Day and much more, with a bang.

Royal Windsor is urging regular racegoers and those new to racing to mark in the diary dates not to forget for the 2015 season. Highlights include:

  • the Real Ale Racenight on Monday 27th April featuring the ever popular Wickermen
  • Family Fun Day with Peppa Pig on Monday 4th May
  • the Best of British Festival from Saturday 27th June to Monday 29th June
  • the famous Irish Night on Monday 27th July

What’s more the usual plethora of music night’s mustn’t be forgotten either, including regular favourites such as Ronnie Scott’s Jazz band and tributes from Take That, Beyoncé & Whitney Houston, ABBA and the Bee Gees!

Naomi Joyce, Royal Windsor Marketing Manager, said:

“There’s so much going on at Royal Windsor this season, we can’t wait to see the course fill up with excited racegoers. Not only do we have a jam-packed racing season but we’re also supporting various charities this year too. We’re hosting Cancer Research’s Race for Life on the 6th and 7th June as well as the Help for Heroes Hero Ride on 21st June.


“For those planning their ‘big day’ the very first Stylish Events Wedding Fair comes to Royal Windsor in September and, after a successful eight consecutive years at Royal Windsor Racecourse, the Windsor Contemporary Art Fair will return this November too.”

Added Stuart Dorn, Royal Windsor Executive Director:

“Our season is indeed looking very exciting and we’re delighted to be kicking it off with our free raceday where we hope those new to racing will find something they can enjoy at our beautiful Berkshire course.”
