The Marathonbet Festival - Ladies Day

Thu 08 Aug


Summertime wouldn’t be complete without a day at the races and few days out have the charm or the spectacular views of our racecourse. It is the place to be this August, once again, for the three-day Marathonbet Festival of Racing, which will celebrate our 3rd year of an exciting partnership with the online bookmaker.

It is planned to be the festival of the summer where over 15,000 people will attend, 1,500 bottles of prosecco are consumed, 1,000 bowls of fresh strawberries are served and 7,000 pairs of high heels will be cast aside by the end of the three days!

This iconic venue will be teaming with racegoers all dressed to impress and looking for a win.

Today is the hugely popular Ladies Day where the glamorous and stylish congregate here at Brighton.

Growing in popularity over the years, this day is a sell out! So make sure you get glam and enjoy the sensational atmosphere at the top of the hill!

Throughout this popular event there will be entertainment, food trucks, vintage pop-up bars, a ladies’ lawn with a complimentary photobooth airstreamer, and, of course, seven exciting races to get your heart pumping.

Brighton Racecourse and Marathonbet will also be engaging with racing fans in the run-up to the festival with competitions to win prizes and tickets, so keep a look out on social media.

Tickets start at £18 and we have a range of hospitality packages including fine dining in our luxury marquee.

Children under the age of 18yrs are admitted free when accompanied by an adult

So pick your package, pick your outfit, and pick your winner!

Our unique course is set high above the sea, overlooking the vibrant city of Brighton and surrounding countryside and South Downs. The view needs to be seen to be believed! It is the best in Brighton! In fact the Telegraph voted us “one of the best places to watch sport” in the UK last year.

We are known as one of the friendliest racecourses in the UK so if its your first time racing you can be sure this is the place you want to start!

Look forward to seeing you up here!
