Family Fun Galore as Under 18s Go Free to a Day Packed with Entertainment
Epsom Downs Racecourse is getting ready for an unforgettable day of laughter, excitement, and entertainment as it presents the ultimate Family Fun Day on Bank Holiday, Monday 28th August. Packed with a kaleidoscope of activities for all ages, this event promises a day filled with joy and memories for the whole family.
Racegoers should prepare for an adrenaline rush, with an assortment of action-packed activities including Action Wheels, a climbing wall, Derby horse hoppers, crazy golf, and an exhilarating assault course. There are also Carnival elements throughout the racecourse, with a classic carousel or the thrilling helter-skelter slide.
All under 18s go free when accompanied by an adult, and there’s plenty to offer children of all ages, including those wanting to get creative. Throughout the afternoon, there will be sessions of hands-on biscuit decorating and skilled face painters while an expert balloon artist will craft amazing creations, chosen by racegoers.
On the track, and kicking off the racing action, over 30 vibrant mascots from all around the country will be taking part in the Mascot Race at 1pm. This fun-filled race is in support of The Children’s Trust in Tadworth, a local charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with brain injuries.
Little athletes will have their moment in the spotlight with the chance for those under 11 to race on the famous Derby track, whilst football enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to learn from the best, as the Rio Ferdinand Foundation presents football skills sessions.
Tom Sammes, General Manager at Epsom Downs, commented, “Family Fun Day at Epsom Downs is one of the highlights of our summer, with something for everyone to get involved in. One of the best parts of the day is the opportunity for youngsters to run on the historic Derby track, a unique experience which only happens on this day each year.
“We are looking forward to welcoming the Epsom community to our racecourse, with colour, face paint, bubbles and fun at every corner of the course. This truly is a day for all ages, and with under 18s going free, it’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy the Bank Holiday Monday as a family.”
