Fan Zone a must for all the family on May Bank Holiday at Newmarket Racecourse

Do you have any plans yet for the May Bank Holiday weekend? If not, there is a great offer available for you and your family at Newmarket Racecourse.

The QIPCO Guineas Festival takes place on the weekend of May 4th – 5th at Newmarket’s Rowley Mile Racecourse and young people will have the chance to learn all about the exciting world of horseracing and thoroughbred breeding in The Fan Zone, a specially created activity area.  What’s more, all under 18s go free on both days of this meeting!

Alongside the top-class racing action out on the track, the Fan Zone will offer exciting activities to entertain, inspire and educate:

  • Royal Ascot-winning ex-racehorse, Cesare will be there to greet all the family
  • A visit to The Breeding Shed will allow racegoers to discover the world of thoroughbred pedigrees, foals and to learn what to look out for when seeing a racehorse
  • Learn the process behind naming racehorses – and have a go yourself!

Other activities in the Fan Zone will include:

  • Giant inflatable horse racing
  • Careers in Racing colouring wall and maze wall
