Funfair & Live Music

Get ready to be thrilled at the huge funfair, watch the spectacular displays and enjoy the live music. The entertainment will continue on after the displays so don't rush off, stay on and enjoy your evening.


Please check the local forecast before departing and dress accordingly. Wrap up warm and bring waterproofs as this is an outdoor event with limited indoor space.


A range of bars and food outlets are available serving tasty bonfire night snacks and drinks. A range of gluten free, vegetarian and vegan food options will be available across the racecourse. Please be aware that no food, drink or picnics can be brought into the racecourse.


We take security and safety very seriously. There will be a strong security presence and you will be subject to a bag search on arrival.

Please be patient and limit the bags you bring. Remember, no food or drink can be brought into the racecourse.

We ask all visitors not to leave bags unattended and to report anything suspicious to a member of staff.



Please remember, the food outlets and bars are card only but we advise you to also bring cash for the funfair rides. There are no cash machines on site so please bear this in mind.
