Fontwell Park will open its gates to the public next Wednesday (Feb 19) for the first open day of the year.

This is an excellent opportunity to view the fantastic facilities at the unique venue, which apart from race meetings is ideal for meetings, conferences, banqueting, exhibition and fairs.

It comes after the track’s first three race meetings of the year - the most recent one last Thursday - all fell victim to the weather.

You can join them for afternoon tea between 2pm and 5pm with a chance to win a table for four in the venue’s Premier Restaurant on a raceday.

George Hill, Fontwell’s marketing manager, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to Fontwell Park for the open day. Our venue can be used for various events on both racedays and non-racedays, and the open day is the perfect way to demonstrate what we can offer.”

The event is open to the public and no appointment is needed. For more information, contact Rebecca Waddington, events executive, at rwaddington@fontwellpark.co.uk, call 01243 543335 or visit www.fontwellpark.co.uk
