Family friendly


An evening of Racing For Everyone! Pontefract Racecourse‘s award-winning relaxed and accessible race day will be back for a second year.

At one of the most relaxing race meetings during the season, it’s an ideal way to experience a race meeting for the first time. The Pontefract Racecourse team want to make the race meeting as accessible to everyone as they can and have made a few additions to the day to improve the event including:

  • an orientation tour of the Racecourse

  • two BSL interpreters on the big screen

  • an autism friendly, mobile sensory space provided by Immersive

With excellent views of the course from all of the enclosures, the option of private boxes and hospitality packages, a selection of dining delights and drink outlets, it really is a great way to spend your evening!

Gates will be opened from 4:30pm with the first race likely to be around 6pm (timings will be confirmed nearer the race meeting).
