On Sunday there’s racing from Nottingham, Uttoxeter and Fontwell Racecourses, with the latter organising a family fun day that includes chair-o-planes, games stalls, funfair rides, penalty shoot-out inflatables, face painting and much more!
Bank Holiday Monday provides another six opportunities to go racing, including Chepstow, who will be hosting their British Street Party Raceday where there will be face painting, trampolines and inflatables to keep the youngsters entertained.
