Windsor Races – Monday 29 July[masked] pm start.
Royal Windsor Racecourse, Maidenhead Road, Windsor, Berkshire, SL4 5JJ
Ladies get your green dresses and the ready and gentleman come release your inner leprechaun at this one off Irish Night at the Windsor races.
Join the Craic and sample a taste of Ireland at its best on one of our most popular nights of the year. With the Guinness flowing and live music after racing, it's not one to be missed!
The gates, bars and restaurants will be open two hours before the start of the first race so why not come along early and enjoy the fantastic atmosphere whilst selecting your winners from the racecard.
These one off events are only held on Monday nights…so not good on a work day/school night I hear you say. However, I attended a Carribean night a few years ago which was excellent. We drove there at 4.00 pm arriving about 5.30 pm and left about 10.30 pm still dancing to Caribbean tunes on a beautiful summer’s night and we were back before midnight. But of course it all depends on your job and where you live. Takes me about 1 and a half hours.
It is a really lovely race course. Much more intimate than the likes of Ascot and really fun if you fancy taking your first flutter or just watching how others do it. You can eye up the horses in the parade ring before placing your bets so you can spot the 3 legged horses before you part with your money.
I would probably only look at either the Grandstand or Club Tickets. The Silver Ring is too basic. In the past I have used Tesco Club Card Vouchers to buy tickets so some may like to look at this option and save some money if the scheme is still operating and you allow enough time to send off for the vouchers in advance.
Like any English event, it all depends on the weather, but we can sing and dance in the rain can’t we?
