William Hill Winter Festival

The William Hill Winter Festival is the highlight of the national hunt season at Kempton Park Racecourse. Over two days right after Christmas, Kempton Park transforms itself into a winter wonderland for horse racing fans; hosting twelve high-class hurdle and steeple chase events and entertainment for the whole family.

All races taking place during the William Hill Winter Festival are sponsored by legendary bookmaker William Hill, meaning that great odds are guaranteed for all fixtures and antepost odds are available weeks in advance on the two-day meeting's feature races. But even if you prefer to simply attend as a spectator, rather than a punter, you will find the William Hill Winter Festival delivers everything you could possibly ask for.

Day One of the Winter Festival at Kempton Park Racecourse does not waste any time but jumps straight into the action. Featuring the Bonus Novice's Hurdle Race, the Feltham Novices' Steeple Chase, the Christmas Hurdle, the King George VI Steeple Chase, another novice's chase and a handicap race; the first day of the festival is truly packed with great national hunt racing fixtures.

After the excitement of the races, Kempton Park invites visitors to warm up at one of their many hospitality venues or get their groove on to some great local live acts.

On the second day of the William Hill Winter Festival the organisers up the ante even more, hosting one of the best and most valuable race days on the Kempton Park calendar. Day two stages the Blackjack Juvenile Novices' Hurdle, the Novices' Steeple Chase, the Bingo Mares Only Handicap Hurdle, the most anticipated Desert Orchid Steeple Chase, the Bonus 25 Handicap Steeple Chase and the Casino Handicap Hurdle.

The William Hill Winter Festival is the perfect race meeting for the festive season. It infuses the excitement of the horse races with a delightful dose of left over Christmas cheer and provides entertainment for all ages.

If you are looking for a great way to wrap up your holiday season, the Winter Festival at Kempton Park Racecourse might be just the ticket.
