On 22nd February the Prime Minister announced the Government's roadmap out of lockdown and that the return of spectators to sporting events will begin no earlier than 17th May.
The Government roadmap will move forward in steps every five weeks (including one week notice periods) from 8th March. Assuming the Government plan remains on track, we therefore look forward to being able to welcome racegoers to Royal Ascot (15th to 19th June).
The Prime Minister announced that capacity limits will be in place. We will continue to formulate plans based on the Government's roadmap and will provide a further update as early as possible in April when the start of step two is confirmed.
Guy Henderson, Chief Executive, Ascot.
