Boxing Day Racing Comes To Fontwell Park

Boxing Day Racing Comes To Fontwell Park

On the 26th December, the gates of Fontwell Park will open for another glorious day of Boxing Day Racing. This meeting is a long-established Sussex family tradition and the perfect way to get some fresh air and walk off the Christmas dinner.

Enjoy seven thrilling National Hunt races, running around our unique figure of eight track, which allows you great views of the horses at every point in the race. You’ll see some of the best horses and jockeys racing has to offer testing their speed and stamina over National Hunt fences, while you cheer on your favourite to the winning post. We’ll also be playing the prestigious King George VI Chase on the big screen, so we’ve got all the action covered.

Aside from the great racing we have to offer, there’s plenty of free fun filled activities to keep children entertained, making Boxing Day Racing the perfect family day out. From our brilliant funfair to free face painting. You can transform into a snowman, reindeer or anything in between. For the first time, we also have Santa’s sleigh coming to Fontwell Park! Come and see the reindeer and even sit inside the sleigh just like Santa and his elves do. We also have a giant snow globe, ideal for taking the ultimate festive family portrait, so come and see Fontwell Park being transformed into a winter wonderland this Christmas. With under 18s getting free entry to Boxing Day Racing and adult tickets starting from £20– what’s not to like?

Boxing Day Racing is a really lovely opportunity to get the whole family together, and a chance to escape the chaos of Christmas celebrations and come and get some fresh air in the lovely Sussex countryside.

We have plenty of tasty Christmassy treats for you to purchase, with delicious mince pies and mulled wine to fill and warm you up.

This is one of our most popular racedays, and tickets are selling out fast. To get yours before they’re all gone, visit or call us on 01243 543335 today. We hope to see you there!
