Volunteer today for racing charities!


Charities working across the sport are frequently in need of valuable support from volunteers – on an ongoing basis or just to support a particular event.

Volunteering is a great way to help the causes you support, and can even boost your CV and help you make new friendships.

Christmas Family Raceday

Saturday 21st December 2019
Simply an unmissable date in the diaries for our regular racegoers. The most valuable racecard of Ascot’s jumps season, visits from Father Christmas and his reindeer, story-telling from Mrs Christmas, pony rides, dodgems, a carol singing concert, festive cocktails, fine dining and free fairground rides. Children can attend and eat for free too at this family day, as well as enrolling in the Ascot Elf Academy. Truly an elegant and uplifting day to celebrate with loved ones.

On the track, highlights are two £150,000 races, an ultra-competitive Betfair Exchange Trophy (A Handicap Hurdle Race) and the Grade 1 JLT Hurdle Race (Registered as The Long Walk Hurdle) – one of the most prestigious long-distance hurdle races in Britain.

Gates open at 10:45am. Find out more and book tickets here.
