Cheltenham Set To Host Kids Love The Races Roadshow

New interactive roadshow for kids on course on Sunday 17th November.

There aren’t many places that you can take the kids for free but Cheltenham Racecourse is a great exception with children under 18 admitted free of charge throughout the year.

And there’s never been a better time to visit than this Sunday 17th November on their Open Sunday, when the course will be hosting an interactive ‘Kids love the Races’ roadshow designed to entertain and engage children in the sport.

As well as a range of family activities including The Cotswold Farm Park who will be on hand to help children get up close to their favourite small animals, children will also be able to visit the Kids love the Races roadshow where budding young jockeys can enjoy finding out more about the equine and human stars of the sport, design their own racing silks and take a look at some specialist racing equipment. They’ll also be able to check out what racehorses eat to keep them in tip-top condition and learn about what happens at the track.

Rod Street, Chief Executive of Great British Racing, said: “Racing provides fantastic entertainment and sporting action for all the family and is one of the few leisure activities where kids go free. As well as the thrill of watching horses race around the track at over 40 mph this new, interactive roadshow will help kids get the most out of a great day at the races.”
