From Lincolnshire to darkest Peru there is no better way to spend the first Sunday in August than at Market Rasen Racecourse.
That’s when the track hosts the Nomad Trust Family Extravaganza, a day of sporting action and fun for kids of all ages.
Topping the bill is Paddington Bear who will be making appearances at scheduled times throughout the afternoon on Sunday, 6th August.
There is also a children’s race on the track, a treasure hunt, Rand Farm Park children’s farm yard, a giant slide, giant assault course, toxic meltdown, super hero sumo suits, bounce house, small castle and slide and soft play.
Families can save money by buying a discounted pass in advance. Two adults and their children get into the Lawn Enclosure for just £16. To book tickets CLICK HERE or call our Booking Office on 0344 579 3009.
All three enclosures at the racecourse – County, Tattersalls and Lawn – will be open, offering visitors a choice of where to watch the races and enjoy refreshments. On the day admission ranges from £10 to £21 for adults, while accompanied children get in free. Gates open at 12.25pm and the seven races are between 2.25pm and 5.40pm.
The Lincolnshire-based Nomad Trust is the ‘charity of the year’ at Market Rasen Racecourse.
The organisation, which was registered in 1986 and celebrated its 31st year in the spring, is a Christian-based charity providing welfare services in the City of Lincoln for those who are homeless or otherwise in need. It upholds the worth and dignity of all individuals and asserts that everyone should have the basic essentials of life, not least companionship.
The charity was initially launched in 1984 offering food and basic shelter at St Swithin’s Church Hall. Since then the shelter has supported over 5,000 people. The Nomad Trust merged with Lincolnshire YMCA in 2013.
Nadia Powell, General Manager, Market Rasen Racecourse, said:
“The Nomad Trust Family Extravaganza is a tremendous opportunity for families to relax with a picnic and enjoy a day at the races. What’s more, an array of entertainment, including appearances at intervals by Paddington Bear, is being laid on to add to the excitement of seven horse races.”
