Ascot Raceday Heath Closure
11th, 25th, 26th July & 8th August 2020

In order to comply with ongoing governmental and British Horseracing Authority instructions for behind closed doors sporting events, the Heath will be closed to the public on the above race days between the hours of 12.00 and 17.30. 

The Heath will be open to the local community during mornings and in the evening on these dates. 

We look forward to reopening the Heath for future race days as soon as possible.  

“Ascot Racecourse Supports” helps in the local community in many ways including donations of raceday tickets, typically in excess of 650 annually, to help with fundraising activities.  We are also grateful for the assistance of our local emergency services and in recognition of their support to the racecourse, provide 2-for-1 raceday ticket offers for all staff within a 10-mile radius of the racecourse.

We support local schools with family raceday offers which earn cash back for school projects and run an annual Royal Ascot Schools Arts Competition with cash prizes which sees artwork displayed in the Ascot Heath tunnel for the local community to enjoy.

Over the years we have also supported the Sunninghill Victorian Street Fayre, Sunninghill Wheelbarrow Race, Mayoral Charity Balls, provided complimentary tickets for community events and provide the Ascot Durning Library and Ascot Hall for local community hire from within racecourse owned premises.   

The Racecourse sits on the Neighbourhood Action Group, contributing to key issues identified by Ascot’s community.
