Racecourse adds ‘Turkey Costume’ race to the line-up, inviting guests to get involved

Kempton Park’s popular Reindeer Racing nights return after popular demand for 2013’s festive period. The racecourse will be offering unique Christmas Party packages this season for both private and shared parties.
This year the reindeer will be accompanied by Shetland ponies and their talented young jockeys, who will also be taking to the track in a separate, but equally as entertaining race. Along with this, the London racecourse is encouraging guests to take part and represent their company in the all-new turkey costume race. A hilarious spectacle to cheer on but also a great way for businesses to increase their exposure on the night – advance registration, and sense of humour is required.
Guests will be treated to a Winter Pimm’s reception and the unique opportunity to meet the reindeer and ponies before the races start, allowing them to pick their favourite and place their bets before the inaugural Shetland Pony Derby and spectacular reindeer race get under starters orders.
After the races, party goers will be able to head indoors to enjoy a delicious festive three course dinner before dancing the night away to a disco and DJ.
Private parties in one of the racecourse’s exclusive suites are an option for groups of 50 or more, while shared party nights are available for both small and larger groups.
Reindeer Racing shared party nights are available at £59 inc. VAT per person*, and Reindeer Racing private parties are priced at £66 inc. VAT per person*. Parties will be available to book on the following dates:

  • Friday 6th December
  • Friday 13th December
