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.

Newmarket Open Weekend

Newmarket Open Weekend look forward to welcoming you to the home of horseracing on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 September 2019.

The Open Weekend gives visitors the unique opportunity to go behind the scenes at British horseracing’s HQ, enjoy two fantastic days of fun and entertainment, and raise money for local charities.

Racing at the Rowley Mile is always a highlight of the weekend with several trainers bravely volunteering to step up to the microphone and take part in the annual NOW racing commentary challenge.

Over the course of the weekend many of the town’s most dedicated equine sites will also open their doors, including; Newmarket’s two leading veterinary hospitals, the National Heritage Centre, the British Racing School, Tattersalls, and the Jockey Club Rooms.

Sunday morning action will once again kick off on the iconic  Warren Hill gallops, followed by a number of Newmarket’s top trainers opening their yards to the public.  The popular Clipper Logistics racing personality show jumping competition will take centre stage for the afternoon’s entertainment on the Severals, alongside Stable Staff Games and much more.

Please note that a complimentary shuttle bus service will be available on Sunday only for all NOW visitors from the Severals car park.
