The Kids’ Zone in the Dee Stand will have additional free activities for youngsters aged 10 and under, including glow in the dark face painting and lantern-making.

The bucket collection will be conducted around the periphery of the racecourse and across the site and members of the public enjoying the festivities are encouraged to give generously to this deserved cause.
