On the hunt for places to go with the kids this summer? Southwell Racecourse is happy to be hosting its hugely popular Family Fun Day this August. It’s ideal for when you’re looking for things to do with the kids, as it packs in sporting action, child friendly entertainment and a bustling atmosphere everyone can enjoy. And kids go free too!

Things To Do In Southwell With The Kids

It can be hard to plan a fun filled family day out on a budget. Our family fun race days are there to help. With free entry for children aged 17 and under, family entertainment, and all the thrills of the races. There’s something for everyone, and it doesn't cost the earth. Make the most of the summer day, being out in the fresh air, letting the kids run some energy off and enjoy some sports.

Family Day Out Entertainment

All our entertainment for 2024 will be confirmed closer to the day. In previous years this has included: • Funfair • Face Painting • Bouncy Castle

Family Fun Day Tickets

Remember, kids go for free, and you don’t have to book them a ticket. Simply collect a child ticket from staff when you arrive for the day. Adults still require a ticket, and we have a selection of tickets and packages to suit whatever style of day you’d like. From general admission, to hospitality options if you don’t fancy sorting dinner for the night.
