A Christmas Winterfest

THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS AT TRENTHAM
SATURDAY 10 JUNE

Join us for two of our favourite things - racing and Christmas, with all the festive trimmings!

(including the first Steeplechase and Hurdles at Trentham for the Season) 

Experience the thrill of racing inside the comfort of a winter wonderland with a full Northern Hemisphere Christmas feast to warm the cockles of your heart. A few Christmas carols, mulled wine and sprigs of holly will soon whisk you into your favourite memories of chestnuts roasting on an open fire....

Cheer up your winter and treat your family, friends or colleagues to Christmas Winterfest Racing! 

To add to the excitement, the day holds the first Steeplechase of the season - run on the classic "figure 8" course, it is spectacular! Followed by a Hurdle, todays racing provides a taste of "jumps" before the prestigious Wellington Steeplechase and Wellington Hurdles on July 15th.
