Racegoers are not permitted to bring helium balloons into the racecourse as they can distract the horses or ‘spook’ them. If you have booked a hospitality venue or box for the day, celebration balloons can be pre-ordered with your booking or catering order. The balloons are not permitted to leave the facility. Should customers arrive at the turnstiles with a balloon, it will be taken away by a member of Ascot staff and stored in the racecourse offices. Racegoers may collect the balloon at the end of racing from the Main Racecourse Reception.
