Marathonbet Festival of Racing August

Marathonbet Festival of Racing - Ladies Day

Thu 09 Aug

TIME TO PLACE YOUR BETS: BRIGHTON WELCOMES THE MARATHONBET FESTIVAL OF RACING

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 2nd year of an exciting partnership with the online bookmaker.

This iconic venue will be teaming with racegoers all dressed to impress and looking for a win from 8th – 10th August.

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 music and entertainment, food trucks, vintage pop-up bars, a ladies’ lawn with a complimentary photobooth airstreamer, and, of course, seven exciting races each day to get your heart pumping.

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!

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 extended our hospitality packages this year to include fine dining in our luxury marquee across both Ladies’ Day on Thursday and Festival Finale on Friday.

So pick your day, 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!
