Kempton Park set for summer of action
The spring and summer season attractions at Kempton Park were unveiled today as the Sunbury racecourse prepares to welcome tens of thousands of visitors, writes Gordan Boreland.
Amidst a packed programme of 16 fixtures between the start of May and early September on the all-weather racing track, there are five major themed days and nights designed to draw in big crowds.
As always, accompanied children aged under 16 are offered free admission at Kempton Park.
The highlights come thick and fast starting on the May Day Holiday: * Bank Holiday Monday, May 4 - afternoon horse racing with free indoor and outdoor entertainment for children, including face painters, balloon modellers, stilt walkers and many other family activities.
Wednesday, July 8th is 'Best of British Night', with all that is great in patriotic entertainment from the Band of Scots Guards, Scottish pipes and drums, West End actor David O'Dell and a grand firework finale. The racecourse's 'Wednesday Winner' advance admission package is just £15 and includes a racecard, bet and a drink. An extra £3 adds a food court voucher. Click here for more dates.
