IT’S a tough one sometimes. What shall we do with the children? Where can we take them where there’ll be something for everyone? Where can we go where we’re guaranteed a good day out?
Children, as any parent knows, can be picky. A great day out for one can all too often seem like a nightmare for another. It’s something we give a great deal of thought to at Uttoxeter Racecourse. We are conscious that family time is precious. We want it to be as special as possibly it can be.
It’s why we schedule specific family fun days, such as the one coming up on Sunday September 23. In fact, the Autumn Family Fun Raceday is one of the great highlights of our year. So much so we want people to enjoy it, that under-18s go free! Even adults only pay £12 for centre course admission.
The secret to the occasion’s success is it’s a family day out like no other, combining the thrills and spills of live horse racing with great family entertainment.
As the horses thunder around the track, kids can enjoy fun both inside and out, including the likes of inflatables, face painting, traditional fairground rides, mini zoo, and much more - even a magic musical bike! While the kids play, adults can enjoy the full-on excitement of a top quality seven race card.
Whether a horse passes the winning post first or trails in last, everyone’s a winner. A Family Weekend Saver consisting of two adult centre course tickets with an allocation of four children (under 18) and two £5 food vouchers to spend in the Burton Albion Family Bar, is ridiculous value at just £29.
It’s vital on any occasion to offer choice, and family days are no different. That’s why we offer our 1907 panoramic restaurant, and Hoops Bistro, as well as the Wrights Classic Raceday Package. This perfect introduction to a day at the races, visitors are offered premier admission, raceday programme, £5 tote bet, welcome drink, Wrights Pie meal deal, and an exclusive behind the scenes tour (subject to availability), all for £41.50. Check out tickets.uttoxeter-racecourse.co.uk for details of all packages.
Life sometimes is about switching off and soaking up what we treasure most – family.
We deserve it.
