Racing at York Racecourse

York Racecourse is one of our favourite racecourses to work with. We have a presence at all seventeen days between May and October and are very proud to offer shelter (or hopefully shade) to the c350,000 racegoers.

As accompanied Under 16s are free, it's no wonder families fill the Course Enclosure and with every afternoon offering at least £100,000 in prize money, the Grandstands are also busy. Selling champagne at under £30 a bottle, it is not surprising that the Champagne Lawns are popular as well. There is always a fantastic atmosphere.  

With fixtures from May to October and the glorious Yorkshire weather, there can be days when planning ahead to offer additional facilities helps to ensure the best possible customer experience.

We have over 1km (or five furlongs) of wet weather cover (subject to availability) to ensure that racegoers have shelter at key areas across the Knavesmire site.

If you are interested in hiring Wet Weather cover for your event, please contact Clare for more information.
