The Jumps Season Starts with a Bang.
The National Hunt season promises to get off to a memorable start and visitors can enjoy one of the region’s largest firework spectaculars. A safe environment for families and there is free entry for under-18s when accompanied by an adult.
The £100,000 Sodexo Gold Cup Chase over three miles is the feature race of seven and there is plenty of fun to be had off the track with fairground rides and an epic fireworks display after racing.
White-knuckle fairground rides and adrenaline attractions will be on offer throughout the day, with gentler rides such as Mini Jets, Dodgems and clip clop pony rides for the under-10s. Rides are free of charge until 4 pm and cost £1 thereafter - with proceed donated to local charities.
Gates open at 10:45am.
Racing is followed by one of the region's largest fireworks displays, with over 11,000 shots released to a carefully-timed playlist of songs for everyone to enjoy.
History’s great National Hunt horses have triumphed here, and excitement will be huge as the winter season begins.
All our fairground rides are FREE until 4pm, where they will then be charged at just £1 per ride with all proceeds going to the Ascot Round Table to donate to local charities. We have a wide variety of rides suitable for all ages. Rides close at 7pm.
Enjoy family activities including face painters, a slime making workshop, jugglers and balloon modellers throughout the day!
