Racecourse offering popular packages for Christmas 2012

Kempton Park Racecourse has announced its Christmas party packages for 2012’s festive period.

Following its immense popularity in 2011, the racecourse will once again be offering Reindeer Racing Private and Joiner Parties to Yuletide revellers for Christmas 2012. Private parties in one of the racecourse’s exclusive suites are an option for groups of 50 or more, while joiner party nights are available for both small and larger groups.

On Friday 14th and Friday 21st December 2012, guests will be able to enjoy a winter PIMM’s reception while meeting Prancer, Dancer and company in the parade ring, before hedging bets on the winning reindeer. Once the lucky punters have collected their winnings, a three course festive menu will be served, before guests dance the night away to past and present Christmas hits until the early hours.

The racecourse is also offering Christmas Panoramic Restaurant packages for just £49 per person at various festive fixtures throughout December, including admission, a racecard, festive three course meal and unrivalled views across the finishing strait from the glass-fronted Panoramic Restaurant. Festive features are taking place on the following dates:
