Towcester Racecourse

making its big return, the ultimate event destination for Northants is back, and it's bigger and better than ever.

After being taken over by new management Towcester Racecourse is back with some unmissable events! There’s the return of the greyhound racing as well as a whole host of entertainment, reminding us it’s one of the best spots in Northants to host almost any event!

Alongside dog racing, there’ll be horse racing, outdoor cinema, weddings, al fresco opera and theatre (plus loads more). It’s a full service venue which means you have everything covered from the flowers to the food, so a little less stress and a little more enjoyment. Located in 320 acres of gawjus and idyllic parkland, this is a beautiful location for  weddings with a suite of marquees, large outdoor spaces and parking. The Empress and Grace stands overlook the racecourse and countryside, superb for corporate events.

It’s been a while since the dogs have been here, but Saturday April 18th they’ll be making a return! There’ll be some great new deals on admission with some tickets giving you free drinks, race cards, totes and hog roasts. Also on the table are talks of Towcester Racecourse to stage the 2021 English Derby! With a whole lotta beautiful land and a packed calendar, Towcester Racecourse is looking like it’s going to be THE  entertainment destination in Northants!

Here’s a list of events planned for 2020:

Easter Ball: 4th April.

The cracking Faberge Egg Easter Ball has Jazz Colossus (a 20-piece big band) taking to the stage, playing a bunch of music from swing to jazz with dance entertainment from Andrezej Mialkowski and his talented troop of dancers – Step by Step.

Not the Rolling Stones & Special Guests Show: 13th April.

They truly do have the moves like Jagger! Lover of Rolling Stones? The Not the Rolling Stones are an authentic tribute who have the whole package to make it a true Rolling Stones show.

D Day Darlings: 8th May.

The D-Day Darlings, Britain’s Got Talent finalist, this singing troop is keeping the wartime spirit alive!

This event is going to be well and truly Madness! The UK’s premier and longest surviving Madness tribute who have played in great venues across Britain are stopping off at Towcester; so get your Baggy Trousers out and get ready to party.

Dolly Parton Tribute Show: 30th May.

This tribute really is SO GOOD. She’s worked 9-5 and then some, performing on national TV with Dr Hook, working on cruise liners along side The Bellamy Brothers and Frank Carson, PLUS she performed meet and greets for Dolly’s very own guests for The Better Day tour at London’s O2!

Taste of Tina Tribute Show: 3rd July.

Even the true Ms Turner would acknowledge this tribute’s talent. She has a powerful, booming voice ready to blow the roof off with an incredible physique and a stage presence like no other. Niqi Brown is a cut above the rest.
