Christmas is almost upon us!

It has been a little while since we last blogged, but what an exciting period it has been for us. In recent weeks we have had the pleasure of being a part of two of Wolverhampton’s biggest events on the calendar. As well as these exciting events we have also seen the last live music act of 2014 perform and the start of our Christmas party season. Looking forward, we are preparing for our popular annual Boxing Day raceday, which once gain has seen all hospitality packages sold out!  Do not worry though, Grandstand Admission and Premier Admission tickets are still available, contact our sales on team 01902 390000 to book your tickets now.

November saw us once again host the annual awards for the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, which was a massive success. The event was compared by BBC radio WM’s Phil Upton, with Chamber President, Ninder Johal also making a presentation to members of the Chamber. The evening was a lively event and we look forward to this event next year as well.



We also had the pleasure of hosting the annual charity gala for Promise dreams, which this year carried the theme “putting on the Ritz”. As usual the evening was a great success and guests pulled out all the stops to bring glamour and glitz to the racecourse. Patrons of the charity, Susie Perry and Steve Bull made an appearance as well as popular 80’s band Go West and the evening’s surprise guest Chloe Jasmine, from this year’s X Factor!


November 29th saw our last live music act of the year, Baby Love, performing in a sold out Ringside Restaurant after racing. The last live music event of the year made way for our Christmas party season to begin the week after. We are pleased to say that they have so far been amazing festive evenings. We also have a new event this year as we are hosting a Willy Wonka themed Christmas party this Friday, which will include Willy Wonka’s Magic Chewing Gum Menu (as tasted by Violet Beauregarde) and a lively disco until late, with our very own DJ as Willy Wonka. Just a few spaces remain for this fantastic party!



Lastly the Racecourse is preparing for Boxing Day, which is one of the highlights of our racing calendar. This year has seen all hospitality packages once again sell out for this raceday, and we are sure that this fixture will see record crowds and be filled with festive fun!

To accompany these wonderfully festive racecourse events the action out on the track has been nothing short of highly competitive and enthralling. The All-Weather Championships has brought about three Fast-Track Qualifiers already on the Tapeta, with Godolphin runners showing superior strength by winning two and finishing a very narrow second in the other. Hidden Gold and Portamento (pictured) will both be going to Finals Day at Lingfield Park on Good Friday next year.


Coming into its fifth year, racegoers will be able to enjoy racing for FREE again this coming January with the Free January Racing initiative here at Wolverhampton. Upgrades are available too for Premier Admission tickets and Horizons Restaurant packages at brilliant value!
