Join us from 3.30pm when we’ll have seven exciting jump races followed by a performance from UB40!

UB40 are one of the world’s best-selling acts with over 70 million record sales to their name, and hits such as “Red Red Wine”, “One in Ten”, “Kingston Town” and “Can’t Help Falling in Love” are amongst some of the 20th Century’s best-known hit singles, the latter a number one single in both the UK and USA, and the theme tune of the Hollywood blockbuster ‘Sliver’.

Throughout their 30-year career they have been twice nominated for the Best Reggae Album at the Grammy Awards, and they continue to tour to sell-out arenas and festivals globally.

Please note: there is one ticket option for the viewing of UB40 (Premier ticket) – this will provide access to all usual Grandstand & Paddock areas, as well as the Premier enclosure.

Children are free in the Centre Course, however for Premier tickets children are £10.

UB40 will be on stage at approximately 9.15pm and will perform until approximately 10.45pm.

Dress code: No leisure wear, baseball caps, sports tops or sports trainers. Smart jeans and smart trainers are acceptable.
