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.

Epsom Open Day in aid of Racing Welfare

From 8.00am – Open Day Car Park Opens; Open Day wristbands and programmes on sale from the Racing Welfare Gazebo in the Open Day Car Park, also from sellers in each yard and on the gallops.

From 8.15am – Free shuttle buses will be running from the Open Day Car Park to the gallop viewing and then from 9.20am between all yards, dropping off and picking up visitors at the yard designated bus stops. Buses will rotate on a set route with the aim of picking up/dropping off at yards every 15 minutes (traffic permitting). If you wish to visit specific yards then please remain on your bus until you arrive at the yard(s) you wish to visit.

Midday – Yards close

It is unlikely you will have time to visit and meet all the horses and staff in each yard, so we recommend you decide which ones you would like to visit and stay on the bus until you reach your chosen yards.

Entrance to the Open Day and to the afternoon racing is FREE for under-18s. Adult tickets to the Open Day only are £10.00 with a combined racing ticket costing £20

Dogs must be kept on leads and under close control at all times and you are also reminded to clean up after your dog. Dogs are allowed on the shuttle buses but again must be kept on a lead and under close control.

Tickets can be purchased online in advance or on the day.
