There’s a chance for kids to experience all the fun of the races for free this weekend.

Yarmouth Racecourse is hosting its Family Fun Day on Sunday, August 28 featuring racing and a whole host of free family entertainment.

Gates open at 11.30am with the action kicking off with the first race at 2.15pm.

Organisers said: “If you’re looking for a way to spend quality time together as a family over the Bank Holliday Weekend then look no further than an action-packed day at a local racecourse.

“And, with children going free, it’s a great family day out that is also kind on your pocket.”

For youngsters who have not been racing before there is a special activity pack, created by Great British Racing – the sport’s marketing and promotional body – including jockeys’ autograph sheet, racecourse i-spy and the chance to design your own jockeys’ silks.
