Why not extend the festivities this Christmas with a trip to the races? There is something for everyone at our favourite event of the year if you are looking for things to do on Boxing Day, a day at the races is your answer.
Forget slumping on the sofa or heading to the sales, dust off those Christmas cobwebs in the fresh air with us at the Boxing Day races, place some bets and grab some delicious food and drink.
Since the 1920s, crowds have flocked to Sedgefield on this day for one of the leading horse racing fixtures in the North-East.
This is a wonderful opportunity for a day out with the kids in a festive atmosphere at one of the most welcoming racecourses in the country.
Slumping on the sofa yet again simply doesn't stack up against the appeal of a fantastic winter afternoon enjoying Boxing Day horse racing in a friendly setting.
If you're looking for some different Boxing Day activities, why not spend the morning walking and taking in the picturesque countryside of Sedgefield.
Children 17 and under go free to the races when accompanied by an adult (some exclusions apply for Festival fixtures and Live After Racing events). Children do not require a ticket in advance and a free ticket will be issued on the day.
Concessions discounts are only available on the day.
Great news! All booking/fulfilment fees have been removed for racedays and events in 2024. The price you see is the price you’ll pay at the checkout. All bookings are made in accordance with our terms and conditions of entry.
