300 Year Anniversary Raceday

Wed 04 Jul

In 2018 Worcester Racecourse is celebrating 300 years of racing at the historic Pitchcroft site, making this one of the oldest racecourses in the UK. Join us for an afternoon of racing and celebrations as we recognise this landmark in our history.

THE WORCESTER GRAND ANNUAL STEEPLE CHASE

We are delighted to announce that for our 300 year anniversary raceday, we will be reviving the famous Worcester Grand Annual Steeple Chase after an 85 year absence. Ran from 1836 - 1933, this was once one of the most important races in the National Hunt calendar, producing winners such as Bourton in 1853 who went onto win the Grand National in 1854. Share this historic moment with us by watching the first running of this race in 85 years!

County Enclosure tickets are £17 when booked in advance, or they will be available to buy on the gate for £21. Centre Course tickets are £10 both in advance or on the gate. For group booking discounts please browse the ticket packages below.
