Saturday update

Saturday fixture update! 

We are racing on Saturday, first race is off at 2.05pm, with gates opening at 12.05pm. Thanks to Blue Square Bet, admission is FREE of charge to the Grandstand, £5.00 for the Premier Enclosure and £33.95 in Horizons. We thought FREE admission had ended, but its back for one day only! Get your tickets on the gate, and tell everyone you know!

These sort of offers don't come along that often, especially on a Saturday afternoon, so make the most of this while you can. It is abit chilly at the moment so make sure you wrap up warm, better still come with a group of friends and huddle together for warmth between races!

We really would like to thank our loyal racegoers who visit the Grandstand, Premier Lounge and also the Horizons and Ringside restaurants. Make the most of Saturday, we never know when we will get an offer like this on a Saturday again!

See you at the weekend

Where has January gone?

With Christmas well and truly in the past, its time to look forward to events at the racecourse over the next month. We do still have 3 fixtures left in January that are totally FREE of charge for entry into the Grandstand. If you fancy a little bit more comfort, the free tickets can be upgraded for just £5.00 for entry into the Premier lounge. Tickets can be pre-booked in advance of the fixture, or just turn up on the day. The offer is for January only, so get your FREE tickets while you still can! 

Our live entertainment dates kick off on February 11th with the fantastic Bootleg Abba. After selling out the Ringside in 2011, we booked the band again, so book now for a great evening of classics such as The Winner Takes it All and Waterloo! Click here for more information.

On Saturday 18th February, Wolverhampton Racecourse will be hosting Compton Hospices 30th Anniversary. The 80's themed event will celebrate 30 years of the hospices great free of service work, to a catchment area of 1.3 million people. Communities across the Black Country, including Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall, South Staffordshire and East Shropshire have benefited from the work they have done. With an evening of live entertainment, 80's themed food and a classic DeLorean at the racecourse, this should be a great evening to celebrate the anniversary, and to also raise some funds for this worthwhile charity. 

Tickets which are still available, but are selling fast, are priced at just £26.95 per person. For further information contact Sally Woods or Simon Cater on 08452255497.

Happy Chinese New Year, its the year of the dragon!


Have a great Day and month!

Wolverhampton Wanderers Match Sponsors

The Racecourse had the privilege on Monday 2nd January to sponsor the Wolves vs Chelsea game, and other than the result, what a great day it was! The day started at 11.45am with a tour around the ground and back areas, big thanks go to Harry for giving us the guided tour! We were lucky enough to see inside the Wolves dressing room before the game, all shirts and boots were ready to go. We then had a meal before the game and took to our seats just before the whistle blew! Although Wolves lost, they gave it a good go and we thoroughly enjoyed the day.

It was great for us to get involved with another local sporting event, and we hope to work with the Wolves again in 2012. We visited the game not only to support the Wolves, but also to promote our FREE January admission offer. The leaflets we distributed around the stadium seemed to spark peoples interest, and the digital sign-age around the ground looked fab, so fingers crossed the month will go really well!
