About Us

Roman Day is the first of the family themed fixtures in 2019 and offers families the perfect opportunity to celebrate the beginning of the Half-Term holidays on Saturday 25 May.

On Roman Day, we’ll be celebrating our historical roots and location within the Roman city of Chester. Did you know, Chester Racecourse, established in 1539, is the oldest racecourse still in use in the UK, if not the world!

Expect plenty of entertainment on the Open Course in addition to the seven races during the afternoon, including chariot and jousting displays. Roman foot soldiers will be on hand to pose for photos and teach youngsters some fascinating facts about their Cestrian ancestors.

So, pack a roman themed picnic, get the family together and join us at Chester Racecourse for a day to remember. Carpe Diem!
