Easter Family Raceday 1

The First Race Meet of the Season on April 17th

Award-winning Beverley Racecourse is launching an action-packed 2019 season with an Easter-themed raceday packed with family activities, including a “magical” Easter tree adorned with 500 chocolate eggs!    

The family-friendly Westwood venue has teamed up with Pocklington-based chocolatier, Butterflies Chocolate, to host the Easter tree hung with real chocolate eggs, as well as egg-decorating workshops.

The first meeting of the season, on Wednesday, April 17, is a perfect family day out during the Easter holidays. Artistic youngsters will be able to learn how to decorate the eggs using white chocolate, sprinkles, stars and chocolate beans, as well as enjoying other activities such as mini funfair rides, trampolines and face painting.

Marketing Manager Kate McKee, said: “After a very successful 2018, we’re really looking forward to another exciting season with new initiatives lined up, as well as the return of popular racedays such as Bygone Beverley and A Very British Raceday. 

“We’re continuing to make our racedays very family-orientated so it’s fitting that our first event of the season is during the Easter school holidays. It’s a perfect opportunity for the whole family to enjoy some quality time together.”

Firmly established as one of East Yorkshire’s best days out, Beverley Racecourse offers an unbeatable blend of socialising and first-class hospitality plus, of course, exhilarating flat racing over one mile and three furlongs on the spectacular course.

Sally Iggulden, Chief Executive of Beverley Racecourse, said: “We’re excited to be starting the season during the Easter holidays, with the perfect occasion for families looking for a fun and entertaining day out.

“The season ahead will deliver the ideal mix of exhilarating racing, popular theme days and family-friendly events giving our visitors a wonderful experience, whether they’re a seasoned racegoer or someone who has never experienced a day at the races.

“Last season was memorable in many ways and we’re looking to raise the bar yet again this year to make a day at Beverley Racecourse an even more enjoyable experience.”

Gates open for the Easter Family Raceday open at 12noon, with the first race underway at 2.15. Under 18's go free and most of the activities are free too, so it really is the ideal family day out this Easter.

Want to dress smartly and enjoy fabulous food then the Premier Enclosure is for you! Otherwise, the Grandstand and Paddock Encloures or Course Enclosure might suit you best. There's something for everyone! 

Parking is free on the Westwood, too!
