Good Friday Race Meeting

Is there a dress code?

Our general admission tickets in most cases provide you with access to the racecourse grounds including the Grandstand and Sports Bar. These areas allow for a casual dress code. However, the racecourse does request that standards are maintained.

We kindly request that you do not wear the following:
• Beach flip flops or backless sandals/shoes*
• Team shirts
• Vests and bare tops
• Swimwear

*Please note that these are not recommended due to the nature of our site and health and safety. If you do wear these it will be at your own risk.

When dining in the Fairwood Restaurant, all general admission standards apply with the addition that we ask that you do not wear any form of shorts or trainers.

Are there additional security measures?

We conduct thorough and relevant risk assessments for each and every event held at Chelmsford City Racecourse and put robust safety measures in place in line with our security policies. We follow government guidance on the number of security staff required for events.

During horseracing events, we have stewards in line with BHA (British Horseracing Authority) requirements.

For large events such as Ladies Day, we monitor the perimeter of the racecourse with robust security. With so many safety measures in place including bag searches and ID scan systems, you can enjoy your day at the racecourse confidently.

Can I book a table in the restaurant?

There are hospitality packages available in The Club Restaurant & Lounge, The Fairwood Brasserie. We also have packages available in our marquees, The Queen Charlotte Marquee and The Parade Ring Marquee.
