Huddersfield Town has today confirmed that the annual ‘Town at the Races’ event will return on Friday 28 July 2017.

The event, which had a sold-out 100 guests attend last year, will start with a hearty breakfast at Town’s Training Ground, PPG Canalside, before the coach departs at 11.30am for Thirsk Racecourse.

Attendees on the day will gain entry to the Premier Enclosure, which offers grandstand viewing, seating, access to the Parade Ring, Winners Enclosure and Finishing Line.

Guests will enjoy an afternoon of racing from the Yorkshire Summer Festival meeting at Thirsk before returning to Huddersfield for food and drinks into the evening.

Places on the trip, including all the above, are priced at £50 + VAT per person, with sponsorship opportunities also available upon request.

Huddersfield Town’s Corporate Events and Sales Coordinator Jasmine Roebuck explained:

“This is our fourth year of holding our trip to the races, with each one getting bigger and better!

“It is a great day for guests to invite their staff, clients and family along to enjoy the excitement of the Horse Racing, so I would encourage people to book their places soon to avoid disappointment of missing out.”

Places are limited, so to book please contact Corporate Events and Sales Coordinator Jasmine Roebuck on 01484 484183 or email
