The Last of the Summer Evening Meetings

As the summer nights draw to a close, we try to make the most of the last of those long evenings. With the summer nights coming to an end we look at getting the most out of what is left of summer evening race meetings.

Starting with a course often forgotten Chelmsford City Races.

Chelmsford Races

Chelmsford Races

Chelmsford offers some great summer and winter evening racing, and with around 58 meetings throughout the year in the summer with the evening meetings on a Friday; meaning you can get that Friday feeling and head to the races after work. This is the perfect way to kick start the weekend with some great racing, often followed by a DJ in the sports bar after racing! 

Next, and better known for its evening meetings, is Royal Windsor, famous for Monday night racing, a great way to shake off the Monday blues and kick start the week! Windsor Monday nights are a great way to start the week with friends or family during the school holidays. There is lots to see and do with different themes for every week so let your hair down and get involved. As well as the Monday nights at Windsor, they offer some great music nights too, with everything from tribute acts to Rita Ora, so there is something for everyone!

Next is Salisbury offering a great family night at the races. The kids have broken up from school and a night at the races is perfect for them to blow off some steam and enjoy something a little different. Salisbury have lots of free things for the kids to enjoy such as fairground rides, face painting, and much much more. The perfect way to break up the week plus U18 go FREE.

Another great track you should explore is Bath, they offer some great nights with lots of different themes. Coming up on the 24th August is the Free Residents night out so anyone with a BA postcodes gets in for free, a great way to bring the locals in who otherwise may not have been, so if you are a local, make sure you take full advantage!
