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.

The Greatest Fireworks Show

One of the biggest firework displays returns to Kempton Park Racecourse on Saturday 3rd November. Gates open at 5pm for a fun filled evening which includes a funfair, performers, DJ, food and drink concessions and of course the spectacular firework display set to circus theme tunes, including music from this year’s smash hit film The Greatest Showman. The funfair and music will continue until 10pm – so grab your family and friends and make an evening of it!

The display will fire at 7pm to allow families to enjoy the early evening events. There is ample free parking and Kempton Park station is on site with trains stopping on the Shepperton to Waterloo line every half hour. This event is extremely busy, so please leave ample time when travelling to the racecourse.

Tickets are on sale now! Book in advance (until midday the day of the display) and save money! Tickets are £7 in advance for all visitors aged 5 and over (0-4 year olds are free) or £10 on the gate. Alternatively, you can upgrade to the Desert Orchid Suite which offers an indoor area as well as a balcony overlooking the racecourse. We also offer a food package in the Panoramic Restaurant and have private boxes available to hire with a BBQ food menu. Click below for more information.
