Ascot’s Spring Family Raceday returns on 24 March

There will be plenty to keep everyone entertained at Ascot Racecourse this spring, with the first family day of 2024 featuring an exciting appearance at intervals from the beloved children’s book character The Gruffalo. The Spring Family Raceday will be full of exhilarating racing and an impressive range of entertainment for kids, parents, and grandparents alike. Racegoers can look forward to a dynamic race card and other countryside-themed attractions.

Ascot Racecourse’s family days have earned themselves a reputation for being unrivaled and the ultimate quintessentially English day out with first-class facilities. Children who receive free entry with a paying adult can participate in a wide range of attractions within the Queen Anne Enclosure. Most notable is the opportunity for a meet and greet with The Gruffalo, guaranteed to leave smiles all around. Arts, crafts, film screenings in The Pavilion, balloon modeling, face painting, and a climbing wall will complete the perfect day out. From tots to teens, there is something for everyone.

Alongside the host of activities on offer, action awaits on the course as the 2023/24 Jumps season comes to a thrilling close with a varied and competitive seven-race card. Attendees can look forward to a high-value juvenile hurdle, which often features runners from the Cheltenham Festival, and give a hearty cheer for some old favourites during the Veterans’ Chase.

Ascot’s Spring Family Raceday is an affordable and fun intergenerational day out, which promises to bring everyone together and create unforgettable family memories
