We are now welcoming back Racegoers to our first floor facilities, but on a limited capacity due to a severe flood in late 2023. Please check the individual ticketing page for availability and please purchase in advance of the race meeting.



Racing Returns To Southwell On Friday 24th November


16 November 2023

Following extensive flood damage to the site in October, we are delighted to be hosting race meetings at Southwell once again starting from Friday 24th November. 

As part of our staged return to full operation, we are working hard to repair and refurbish the various public facilities that were damaged during the flooding. 

Please note that whilst this work takes place, we are currently unable to offer general admittance tickets, but can accommodate Owners and Trainers, Racing Staff and Annual Members on the first floor of the Grandstand.

Rest assured that we are working hard to complete the work necessary to once again welcome more people back to the racecourse, and we will offer further updates in due course.

Whilst we’re delighted to be able to welcome owners and trainers, Racing Staff and Annual Members to attend, due to the significant flood damage, many facilities have been damaged and your experience may be a little different.
