16th & 17th September 2017

about-header

We look forward to welcoming you all to the 32Red Newmarket Open Weekend on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September 2017. The Open Weekend gives visitors the unique opportunity to go behind the scenes at British horseracing’s HQ and enjoy two fantastic days of fun.

Racing nutters and food lovers are equally catered for thanks to the NOW Food & Drink Festival, which takes place over both days (10am-5pm) and boasts over 50 bespoke stalls.  Placed right at the heart of the action in Newmarket’s town centre it brings a festival feel to this racing town.

Over the past four years the Newmarket Open Weekend has raised a fantastic £225,000 for local charities.  We hope that this year you will once again give us your support for our 2017 chosen charities; The Racing Welfare Newmarket Housing Project, the Newmarket Day Centre and the Newmarket Academy.
