Race, Rattle 'n' Roll
This is racing with a twist, and the perfect excuse to get together with friends, family or colleagues.
Ascot’s only evening meeting will have an electric retro atmosphere as the Grandstand is transformed into a chic American diner. Set against a backdrop of classic Cadillacs and ice cream sundaes, racegoers are encouraged to wear 1950s dress.
The evening consists of six competitive races over distances from five furlongs to two miles.
After racing, sit back and sing-along to a screening of the hit film, Grease, on a large open air cinema screen.

RACING AT ASCOT
A RACE FOR ALL SEASONS
From its beginnings in 1711, Ascot Racecourse has cultivated a rich racing heritage. Flat racing has been taking place here for more than 300 years, the most famous event being the 'Royal Meeting', which started to take shape with the introduction of the Gold Cup in 1807.
Since then, several new events have been introduced, notably Jumps racing in 1965. From high-profile 'Prestige Days' to relaxed 'Family Days', and with entertainment encompassing wine, food and beer festivals, 1950s rock'n'roll, live music, and Christmas markets, Ascot's racing calendar caters to a wide audience.
Whether you're a serious racegoer or a social one, there is something for everyone.
THE ASCOT GRANDSTAND
Sitting within beautiful woodland adjacent to Windsor Great Park, the Ascot Grandstand perfectly complements the Berkshire landscape. The arc-shaped layout ensures that much activity is concentrated in the heart of the building near the Parade Ring and finish line.
With two different levels of admission, there is something to suit all tastes and occasions. Premier Admission on Level 4 contains the best public facilities in the Grandstand, whilst Grandstand Admission racegoers have access to a variety of facilities on the Concourse Level, with easy access to the Parade Ring, and elevated and lawn-level track viewing.
Ascot offers several fine dining venues, casual dining restaurants and private boxes and loges for hire, along with a wide range of bespoke dining packages.
