The Craic Is Back At Sandown Park

Celebrate everything the Emerald Isle has to offer as the popular Irish Day at Sandown Park returns on Saturday.

Racegoers can enjoy a pint of the black stuff while watching all the exciting action on and off the track, with horses not the only attraction.

Dancing, food, music and entertainment will light up what is undoubtedly a craic’ing day out for all.

Present on the day will Shane Filan from Westlife, a local resident to the Esher venue.

U2 tribute act, U2UK will be playing live after the racing has concluded.

Racegoers may also be tempted to perform a jig or two after watching ‘Ceolsha Dance’ perform throughout the day.

The dancers’ careers have included performances in some of the most successful stage shows that we have seen in the last 20 years, namely Riverdance and Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance.

Bentleys Restaurant is London’s most famous Oyster Bar and traditional Irish grown oysters will be on sale in the Grandstand throughout the day.

Richard Corrigan, the head chef at Bentleys, recently launched his newest restaurant, Corrigan’s Mayfair to great acclaim and is also involved in Lindsay House Restaurant in Soho, London.

A regular on TV programs such as Saturday Kitchen and BBC2’s Full of Food, Richard uses his Irish roots in all of his cooking and will present on the day.

Tickets start at just £18 for Grandstand Enclosure and £26 for Premier Enclosure when booked in advance.

Turn up in emerald green clothing (which must be half the visible outfit eg shirt or trousers) and £5 will be taken off your entry ticket to the Grandstand enclosure.

Racing is a really social occasion and all group bookings of 12 or more receive a 20% discount, booked in advance. As always, children aged 16 or under go free.
