What's happening at Brighton

Racing at Brighton Racecourse is back for 2015

Thu, Apr 16, 2015

Following the winter break in exhilarating flat horse racing over the turf at Brighton's exclusive track, the popular sport is back on Tuesday 21st April 2015 with the season opening race evening in association with Piglets Pantry. Racegoers celebrating the start of the new flat season at Brighton Racecourse can enjoy a brand new Piglet's Pantry Pie & Pint Package, launched at the season opener.

Set high on the Sussex Downs with stunning views of Brighton and Hove and the English Channel, Brighton Racecourse boasts one of the most unique racecourse settings in the country and hosts 21 flat racing fixtures between April and October. The season opener, with a planned seven race card, will offer plenty of opportunities to experience the thunder of hooves on the turf. The first race is at 4.40pm and the last at 7.50pm.

Brighton Racecourse is urging regular racegoers and those new to racing to mark in the diary dates not to forget for the 2015 season. Highlights include:
Gentlemen's Day on Friday 29th May
The popular three day Festival of Racing between the 5th and 7th August
The Family Fun Raceday on Sunday 23rd August

George Hill, Brighton Racecourse Marketing Manager, said:

"There's so much going on at Brighton this season, we can't wait to see the course fill up with excited racegoers starting at our season opener this month.

"For lovers of all things retro the Jukebox and Retro Fair comes to Brighton on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th April and, after a successful 11 consecutive years at Brighton Racecourse, the Brighton Bank Holiday Market will return this May too."

Added Davina Wells, Brighton Racecourse Executive Director:

"Our season is indeed looking very exciting and we're delighted to be kicking it off this month. We particularly hope those new to racing will find something they can enjoy at our superb Sussex track."
