Chester Racecourse has announced its race days and themes for 2024, with tickets and hospitality on sale for 15 exciting fixtures between May and September.

The new season starts with three spectacular days of racing at Boodles May Festival from Wednesday 8 to Friday 10 May, 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.

You can then take a race through history at Roman Day on Saturday 25 May – one of two family-focused race days, alongside the ever-popular Family Fun Day on Sunday 4 August.        

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

The elegance of Ladies Day is in full stride on Saturday 31 August, 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 21 September.
