What's happening at Brighton

Rockinghorse Family Fun Day

Tue, Jul 16, 2013

A local children's charity will be holding its first Family Race Day this summer.

Rockinghorse Children's Charity has teamed up with Brighton Racecourse for the Rockinghorse Family Race Day on Sunday 1 September to host an afternoon of racing and entertainment for all ages.

With seven races across the course of the afternoon, a funfair and the chance to meet your favourite superhero, it's a great day out for all the family in support of Rockinghorse, raising money for sick children in Sussex.

As the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital, and a vital supporter of the Trevor Mann Baby Unit, Rockinghorse raises money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment whilst ensuring that children are treated in an environment better suited to their needs.

Stuart Dorn, General Manager at Brighton Racecourse said, "We are delighted to be partnering with Rockinghorse to raise awareness and funds for the excellent work that the charity do, supporting the work of the Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital and Trevor Mann Baby Unit that benefit so many families throughout Sussex."

Advance tickets are £10 for adults or admission on the day is £15 into the Grandstand and Paddock enclosure and free entry for under-18's.

Gates open at 1pm and racing starts at 2pm with the last race at 5pm.
