Popular TV characters Bluey and Bingo are set to appear at Chester Racecourse later this year.

The adorable doggy duo depicts Blue Heeler puppies from the award-winning series Bluey, and they are coming to the racecourse for Liverpool John Lennon Airport Family Fun Day on August 4.

This free, activity-packed event for children is set to have a high turnout, as Bluey and Bingo make appearances throughout the day on the Open Course.

Bluey has been an international smash hit, being hailed as the number one show on CBeebies in the UK and being aired in more than 60 countries around the globe.

It's been streamed more than 450 million times since its introduction on BBC iPlayer.

Steve Davies, chief operating officer at Chester Racecourse, shared his excitement about the fun summer event.

He said: "Bluey is a global, smash-hit series loved by families everywhere, so we're thrilled to have Bluey and Bingo join us for one of the family events of the summer in the North-West.

"Our very special guests are bound to make it a memorable experience for the whole family, as children young and old get to see their heroes out on the Open Course.

“So come and dive into a world of imagination and fun and immerse yourself in all the activities we have going on at this great value, fun-packed family raceday. You’re guaranteed to have a pawsome time."

Attendees can purchase adult tickets for the Roodee Enclosure, where the beloved puppy characters will be featured, and they are priced at £17.
