A day at the races used to end after the last race - fondly known as the "Getout Stakes"!!!
Well that has all changed. Now there are many meetings that continue beyond the time the last betting slip has been discarded (sound familiar?). "The Show Must Go On" seems to be the order of the day at racecourses up and down the country during the summer months as post-racing entertainment offers race-goers the chance to continue enjoying themselves long into the evening hours.
There are world-famous musicians and hugely popular tribute acts entertaining large crowds, helping people to either celebrate their success at the bookmakers or take their mind off the lack of luck they've had all day!
But who is playing where, when and how do I find out about it? - all great questions. Well you could make several telephones calls, look at a dozen websites or even add your name to a collection of newsletters and get the information that way.
OR you could just look at the Entertainment Calendar and find all the information you need in one place. We know you're busy so we want to make it easy for you by showing all the great entertainment the racecourses are hosting this year.
We'll provide you with details of the latest events and concerts; where they are and whether you have to be in a certain enclosure to enjoy them. We'll also add any other information we think you will benefit from. However, please, bear in mind that the racecourse may change the details at any time so it is always best to check with them directly before you set out.
Enjoy the racing, enjoy the entertainment and above all, have yourself a great time!!!
