"The final day of the Royal Meeting always provides a dramatic climax, featuring one of the world’s most important sprint rac

es: The Diamond Jubilee Stakes.

As the second British leg of the Global Sprint Challenge, it is also Britain’s joint most valuable sprint race, alongside the Darley July Cup at Newmarket.

Although the fashions are as elaborate as they are during the rest of the Royal Meeting", there is a real party feel.


Upcoming Events

Here are some of the questions you have asked in the past...

Do I have to bet, or gamble to go to Ascot?

No... Personally I go for the hats ;)

But we have had a few big winners

How much wine will be served?

Included in your ticket is one glass of bu

bbles, and one beverage with lunch.

Once inside, will I be able to find the group?

Yes, I've carefully plotted out meeting points (which improve each year) and it's easy to find us throughout the day.  This means you can wonder off and rejoin us.

What's the after party like?

It's crazy.  It's fun.  Did I mention it's crazy?  It's about 1,000 people all having a blast - high on the air of Ascot.  Not to be missed.


Once we have sold out our tickets we will offer the service of reselling your ticket for a fee of £20.00 but I can not promise at this late notice that I will be able to.

With regrets, if you miss the bus, I will not be able to meet you or offer refunds.
