Can I bring my tradestand?

Tradestands are organised by individual meetings. Please contact the Secretary for the meeting you wish to attend and they will put you in touch with the correct person.

Meeting secretary information is shown on the individual meeting pages, available form the main menu.

How much is admission?

On the gate
Admission on the day is decided by individual meetings but is generally around £15.

Purchased in advance
If you buy an e-ticket in advance (using the tickets menu item here) then you can get deals on tickets. Normally an e-ticket is £10 until a month before the fixture, £13 after that.

U16s are always admitted free.

Do children have to pay to get in?

No, all Midlands Area courses allow under-16s in free of charge.

Is there a disabled car park?

Parking areas with less-abled access vary from course to course. The best thing to do is to contact the Secretary for the meeting you are planning to attend and see if they can arrange something for you?

What time does racing start?

This varies from meeting to meeting but will normally be advertised on the separate meeting pages under the "Race Meetings" menu item.

In general meetings at the start of the season will have their first race at 12pm, 12.30pm or 1pm. After the clocks change racing normally  begins at 2pm.

If there is pony racing at a meeting this will normally start at 12.45pm or 1pm.

Is there a bar? Bookmakers?

All of the Midlands meetings provide a bar and catering stands are also available.

Bookmakers are always available at Midlands Area meetings, although the number varies from course to course.

Can I take photos?

You are very welcome to bring your camera and take photos or video on the day.

However it is important to note that all courses are private land and the land owner control the rights to photography. All unofficial photography MUST be for personal use only and may not be sold for profit under any circumstances.

Can I bring my dogs?

Dogs are very welcome at all our courses but should be kept on a lead at all times, even when walking the course before racing begins.[
