CHESTER Racecourse has announced its race days and themes for 2024.

The new season starts with three spectacular days of racing at Boodles May Festival from Wednesday, May 8 to Friday, May 10, where the running of the Weatherby’s Digital Solutions Cheshire Oaks, the Boodles Chester Vase, the Boodles Dee Stakes, the Ormonde Stakes, and the prestigious Chester Cup attract some of the best in the sport.

Then there will be a race through history at Roman Day on Saturday, May 25 – one of two family-focused race days, alongside the ever-popular Family Fun Day on Sunday, August 4.

Prepare for the unbridled excitement of Summer Saturdays, including a Summer Style Race Day on Saturday, June 29, or move to the rhythm of racing and summer beats at Summer Music Weekend – featuring Ibiza Classics on Friday, July 12, and Soul Sunset Racing on Saturday, July 13.

Ladies Day will be in full flow on Saturday, August 31, where you can up the fashion stakes in a Best Dressed competition and dance to the sounds of a post-racing DJ set.

Autumn racing and culinary delights take centre stage at the Autumn Racing Food & Drink Festival in September, while the season concludes later that month with the return of Oktoberfest on Saturday, September 21.

Steve Davies, Chief Operating Officer at Chester Racecourse, said: "We are excited to announce an amazing line-up of race days and themes for the 2024 season, featuring a host of entertainment on-and-off the track. From racing to music, food to fashion, we have something for everyone across all 15 of our fixtures and many reasons to come to more than one race day.

"We look forward to welcoming guests back to the racecourse in 2024 to enjoy so many of these memorable and immersive race day experiences with us."
