Merely a 10 minute drive from our wonderful setting here at Channels Lodge, guests will uncover a fun and exciting day out at Chelmsford City Racecourse.
Officially Britain’s newest racecourse having been developed in its current form in 2008, the venue plays host to 65 horse racing meetings a year with several charity and sponsored-events fulfilling an extremely generous itinerary.
With parts of Essex having endured torrential downpours last week, the good news is that 20 degree plus heat has been forecast.
With summer now most definitely on its way – we hope – here’s what racegoers and fun-timers alike can expect at Chelmsford City Racecourse throughout the rest of June 2016!
Havens Hospices Raceday | Wednesday 15th June 2016
What can beat the buzz and excitement of midweek racing in the evening with a cold beverage in hand while hopefully picking a few winners to boot?
Make these visions reality next Wednesday evening at the Havens Hospices Raceday with the first race of the evening coming up at 6:30pm.
With five other races encapsulating onlookers for three gripping hours right the way through until 9:10pm, the event is taking place in the name of an organisation providing free hospice care for babies, children, teenagers and adults within the Essex area.
With Chelmsford City Racecourse supporting this extremely successful local organisation who aim to ensure they’re ‘making every day count’, come along and enjoy a heartwarming evening in what we hope will be lashings of late evening Essex sunshine!
Ladies Day | Thursday 16th June 2016
The jewel in the crown of Chelmsford City Racecourse’s June offering is undoubtedly Ladies Day which is sure to draw the most glitzy and glam from all four corners of the county!
Hot on the heels of the Havens Hospices Raceday, Ladies Day is built around a 7-race card this year with the first of these coming up in the afternoon at 1:50pm.
But in reality however, 2016 Ladies Day at Chelmsford City Racecourse incorporates far more than the racing itself. With a pop-up shopping village not only incorporating a free goodie bag but also a generous array of luxury items, indulgence is most definitely the name of the game.
Coinciding with the revered Ladies Day at Royal Ascot on the same day of course, big screens will carry the Berkshire event so that racegoers can follow their other bets while you may also spot a waving friend or colleague as well!
