About Start 2020 in style with a day at The Races

The hugely popular raceday, which sold out last year, promises to be a great day out for the whole family filled with spectacular jump racing, a racing programme of over £100,000 as well as the famed New Year’s Sprint, one of the most historic athletic events in the world.

New for 2020 are enhanced bar facilities and more pop-up bars for those looking to continue the festivities. Visitors can also enjoy live ceilidh music from Kilter, a DJ set from brilliant Funkwagen, heated marquees and plenty of seasonal food and drink throughout the day. This year first footers will also receive complimentary canapes on arrival.

Back by popular demand are the VIP Yurts, available for exclusive hire for parties of 12, with welcome fizz, gourmet burger and chips, private seated area next to the racetrack for all of the action as well as a wood burning stove to keep cosy.

And if racegoers need any more persuasion, there are return coach transfers* available from across Edinburgh and the Lothians to take racegoers to the Racecourse.

Advance purchase tickets are available offering a saving of £5 per adult at musselburgh-racecourse.co.uk Under 18s go FREE when accompanied by an Adult.

This event will likely sell out so make sure you buy in advance and don't miss out.
