Next race meeting - 1st September

Britain’s newest racing venue offers thrilling all-weather racing under the mesmerizing light of its champagne fluted floodlights and the venue also highlights its versatility with a huge range of non-raceday events.

The brand new facilities provide a wonderful setting from which to anchor your raceday experience. The Grandstand boasts two restaurants, one ideal for families, friends and corporate events, the other, a more formal environment and perfect to celebrate special occasions. The restaurants are complimented by the lively Sports Bar area offering various raceday packages and bars for general admission.

In terms of prize money offered to our racing connections, Chelmsford City Racecourse consistently achieves its aim of sitting near the top of the table with regard to value and the course is reaping the rewards by hosting competitive races with large fields of runners.


Non-raceday events for 2016 include concerts, comedy and murder mystery nights, wedding and antiques fairs and a whole host more, details of all of these events can be found under our “Venue Hire” tab.

Coming up over the next couple of months we have our inaugural “Catwalk at the Course” on 8th October where a host of local and national designers will be showcasing their finest trends for the upcoming seasons. Following this we will be staging a racing themed Murder Mystery night (12th November), will you be able to solve the “Tale of the Dark Horse”?
