Following flooding from the River Greet in October, Southwell Racecourse is pleased to confirm the next step in its partial reopening from Saturday 24 February.
With repairs to the extensive flood damage across the site continuing, Southwell Racecourse will be able to offer access for up to 100 members of the public, alongside Racehorse Owners, Annual Members and associated staff, at all fixtures from Saturday 24 February.
Further work on the public facilities at Southwell continues, with the aim to return to full operation as soon as possible in the coming months.
Southwell Racecourse Executive Director, Mark Clayton, said, “The damage caused by Storm Babet last October was devastating for the Racecourse, but I have to thank all of the team here who have been working incredibly hard to deliver our staged return to normal operation.
“To be able to start racing again in the first instance, with all of the work required in repairing our turf and tapeta racing surfaces alongside the installation of temporary facilities, was a big step for us.
“We acknowledge that whilst the number of public tickets that we are able to make available is relatively small, it is equally represents another step forward. The damage, particularly to the ground floor of the Grandstand, the bars, kitchens and other facilities located there was extensive, but the renovation work continues and we look forward to a return to full operation as soon as possible”.
