Event Summary:  Bring dad and all the family for a fun-filled day with exciting racing and a brilliant open-air concert afterwards by the fabulous Fake Tan - The Ultimate Party Band. Fake Tan play every show like it’s their last, with an energetic stage performance that even the band’s medic says is high risk at best! Fake Tan play dance floor fillers from the 1980's to present day and are suitable for all the family.They made quite an impression when they made their first visit to Salisbury Racecourse last September, so we are delighted that they are coming back to perform at an even bigger race day! Racegoers in all three enclosures will be invited to enjoy the concert, which will start about 15 minutes after racing has finished and last for about 75-90 minutes.

“We all thought Fake Tan were fantastic when we saw them perform at Salisbury Races last September, and we didn’t want them to stop! It is great to hear that they are coming back on Sunday 18th June. The whole family will love them”. Helen Edwards, Finance Director, Edwards Ford, Salisbury

THESE RIDES/FACILITIES ARE PROVIDED FREE OF CHARGE, SO THEY CAN BE USED AGAIN AND AGAIN!

"We came to Salisbury Races on 1st May last year for your family day and I just wanted to say what a great day we all had. The kids entertainment was brilliant, in particular Dewi the Dragon which my daughter watched about four times and wanted to go back for more! He was amazing, and managed to keep a wide age range of children sat down for his whole show, and even intrigued my one year old. Definitely book him again. Also the simulator was amazing." Claire Fisher, Southampton.


These facilities are all located in the Sarum Enclosure (in the centre of the course), however, all racegoers with children i.e those in the Bibury Enclosure and Grandstand & Paddock Enclosure, are welcome to come across and use them.
