I’VE HAD MY FILL OF THE RACING, WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?

Participating in a cocktail making class with Fever-Tree’s Master Cocktail Maker? What about listening to a talk from bike historian Scotford Lawrence of the National Cycle Museum? Or checking out the World National Cycling Museum Historic bike exhibition? Re-vamping your look at our 1940s vintage fashion village? Hopping onto a historic tethered hot-air balloon? Admiring a never-before-seen collection of classic cycling photography? Taking a gander at our immersive vintage activities and beauty parlours?…Listening to live jazz from the legendary ‘Godfather of Swing’ and Ronnie Scott regular Ray Gelato and the Giants? Dancing to saucy swing and stomping electro beats from Electric Swing Circus…we think you’ll find there’s plenty to do!
WHERE DO I VIEW THE ACTION?
Anywhere on perimeter of track – both from infield and outside
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
Don’t worry! There are lots of undercover areas, including our bars and exhibitions. We will still be putting on a comprehensive racing programme. Not only will this give you ample opportunity to check out some of our non-racing activity, including live music, immersive vintage activities, wide-ranging talks and interviews, but the track will be dry and race-ready 20 mins after rain stops.
WILL I SEE ANY CELEBRITIES?
CAN I TAKE FOOD AND DRINK INTO THE REVIVAL?
