A day at Ascot Racecourse can best be described as the most exciting yet elegant event in your calendar. Experience a high-octane sporting occasion with a full day of racing action mixed with a little traditional style. With events all year-round, there is something for everyone to enjoy
Coming up at Ascot, this summer, the Summer Mile Racing Weekend, on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th July, presents two days of thrilling racing action. The racecourse’s pristine lawns are in full midsummer bloom and its grounds alive with atmosphere as racegoers enjoy an exciting card of Flat racing on a relaxing afternoon of summer socialising. On the Saturday, racegoers of all ages can also enjoy festival-themed activities from fairground rides, mini golf, face painting, and more. It’s the perfect excuse for treating family and friends alike to an enjoyable summer’s day out at Ascot.
One of Ascot’s greatest occasions, QIPCO King George Diamond Weekend, on Friday 22nd to Saturday 23rd July, offers a relaxed afternoon of racing where racegoers can wander across the racecourse’s luscious lawns and sample the many Champagne and cocktail bars on offer under the glorious English sunshine. Although less formal than the Royal Meeting, QIPCO King George Diamond Weekend has become a showcase of contemporary summer style. The headline act, the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth QIPCO Stakes is Europe’s indisputable midsummer middle-distance showpiece and the weekend closes, on the Saturday, with live music at sunset.
For more live music entertainment and unmissable racing, join us at the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup, on Saturday 6th August. A unique fixture in the global racing calendar, the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup sees the world’s top jockeys compete in a competition format as they join forces to try and lift racing’s ultimate team prize. Find out whether Great Britain & Ireland, Europe, Rest of the World or the Ladies will lift the trophy after a thrilling eight-race contest before rounding off the day with live music after racing. This year’s concert will be headlined by Grammy Award winning Clean Bandit, with multi-platinum selling The Hoosiers also performing, and more artists still to be announced!
