Beverley Racecourse announces they are extending their 2015 Season with an additional event on 1st October. The new fixture, the new Season Closer, wraps up the season in style and is an event that is transferring from Newcastle Racecourse for this year only, following the redevelopment plans of the Gosforth Park track. This not only means that the good folk of Newcastle will be visiting Beverley but that the two planned September events at Beverley Racecourse, the Totepool Afternoon’s Racing on Wednesday 16th September and an Afternoon’s Racing on Tuesday 22nd September, will now lead seamlessly to this extra race day on what is forecast to be a mild October. The October event will cost £10 for Grandstand & Paddock and Premier Enclosure entry (usually £21 and £14 pp) with concessions priced at £8 pp. The Course Enclosure will be open as usual (£6 pp). Children are free.

Beverley Racecourse also has plans for the winter following this final race day, with the second and final phase of work commencing on the Premier Enclosure. This year, visitors to the racecourse have enjoyed an investment of £650,000 on work to the two Premier Enclosure Bars, and winter/spring 2016 sees the additional investment of £500k on work to expand, update and refresh the Restaurant and Premier Enclosure entrance and staircase.

Sally Iggulden, Chief Executive of Beverley Racecourse says: ‘We continue to invest in upgrading and refurbishing our facilities at Beverley Racecourse in order to raise the bar ever higher and meet the competition head on. This year we have enjoyed staging 20 glorious events and with plans in place for spring 2016, we can certainly promise another busy year.’
