New year, new Towcester Racecourse
And guess what? The dogs are back! Under new management, Towcester Racecourse is set to be THE entertainment hub for Northamptonshire!
WE LOVE Towcester Racecourse! The vistas are so beautiful and we’ve often thought it’s a little under utilised! It was a popular venue and racecourse before it went into administration in 2018; perfect for weddings and live bands as well as the traditional racing events; but it never really used all of those 320 acres. Well not any more! It’s now under new management with plans for sailing on the lakes, al fresco opera performances and huge music, food and well-being festivals. We obviously had to have a nosy and check in to see what’s happening for 2020, and boy does it look good.
Firstly; the dogs are back! They’ll be making a return on Saturday April 18th with great new deals on admission, including free drinks, race cards, totes and hog roasts. Plus, there’s hope for Towcester Racecourse to stage the 2021 English Derby; oh yes readers, keeping Northamptonshire well and truly on the sporting map alongside other superb venues like Silverstone!
There’s lots of new events too including their Valentine’s Ball on February 15th, with 20-piece big band Jazz Colossus who will be playing a selection of music from Latin funk to contemporary jazz (we’ve heard great things). Tickets start from £44.95 which includes a glass of fizz and a three course meal, plus great entertainment for the whole evening (night owls will be happy with the live DJ and 1.30am finish).
Other fab events landing at Towcester Racecourse are Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea & Michael Buble tribute with 2 course carvery on 22nd March, the Easter Ball 4th April and The Summer Festival 11th July. If you love tribute bands they’ve got the full roster! Not The Rolling Stones & Special guests show 13th April, Dolly Parton Tribute show 30th May, One Step Behind Tribute 9th May, Planet Abba Tribute show 24th July, Taste of Tina Tribute show 3rd July and Queen II Tribute Show 31st August (phew!).
As soon as the website is up and running you’ll be able to grab tickets online or race tickets here. Check out what else is expected from the brand-spanking new Towcester Racecourse on their Facebook. They’ll have loads more events on this year, including some VERY big music names. Also a possibility are glamping pods, caravanning and camping!

There isn’t much camping accommodation around the area, so utilising all of this space gives endless possibility for events; how exciting!!! You’d better watch this space Mudsters; it looks like Towcester Racecourse is set to be the entertainment hub for Northamptonshire! Oh, and did we mention the new owners are lovely!
