Christmas is all wrapped up at Uttoxeter Racecourse

With a busy season of winter racing coming-up fast on the rails, one of Staffordshire’s premier venues is also putting the finishing touches to a very special line-up for December.


The full festive fayre this year includes six party nights, some Winter Afternoon Racing on 6 December, a Christmas Party Raceday on 16 December and a New Year’s Eve Raceday on 31 December.


All nicely wrapped-up in time for Christmas and the New Year, the aim is to offer more glitter and glam than ever before. And it all gets under way in the new, award-winning 1907 restaurant with the first of six ‘Celebrate In Style’ Christmas parties on Friday 2 December.


Each one of the party nights will offer a night of indulgence and glamour with friends or colleagues, featuring a three-course meal, first-class live music and a classic disco until the early hours of the morning. A tribute band will invite guests “Into the 80s” on 2 December, 10 December and 16 December; “Wham Bam Duran” is lined-up for 3 December; “Olly Meets Buble” is set for 9 December; and “Spicey Girls, Girls R Aloud” will keep everyone entertained on 17 December.


Prices start from £42. Tickets, however, are selling fast; and Uttoxeter Racecourse is already getting close to hand-up the SOLD OUT signs above the doors for several of the dates.


Racing fans have a lot more to look forward to during the final month of the year with three great meetings, including a Winter Afternoon Racing race meet (, the annual Christmas Party Raceday on (, and the ever-popular traditional New Year’s Eve Raceday (


The Christmas Party Raceday features an exclusive “Christmas Jumper” competition – with prizes on offer to encourage everyone to come along wearing their favourite seasonal sweaters.


A full hospitality package will also be available on this day, offering Premier Enclosure Admission, Private Table in the Paddock Pavilion, Fully Inclusive Bar, Race Day Programme, a two-course menu, and Tote Betting Facility. Prices start from £37.
