The Moët & Chandon July Festival at Newmarket

Join Newmarket Racecourses as the eyes of the world descend on the picturesque July Course for the Moët & Chandon July Festival. Enjoy three days of world-class horse racing, fabulous fashion and musical entertainment. The highlight on the track is the prestigious Darley July Cup on Saturday, which is Europe’s leading sprint race. 

Over the past few years we have seen some scintillating renewals of this race, including US Navy Flag in 2018, the wonderful Limato in 2016 or Hayley Turner’s first Group One winner with Dream Ahead in 2011. This year’s renewal is something to savour as many of its previous winners have been crowned Europe’s Champion Sprinter.

Not to forget the other fascinating racing over the Festival, including The Princess Of Wales’s Tattersalls Stakes where Poet’s Word was an impressive winner last year and The Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes on the Friday where winners have gone on to some fantastic honours including Alpha Centauri in 2018 and who could forget Goldikova in 2009. There are 7 group races across 3 unforgettable days of racing.

While off the track, the fashion highlight is The Style Awards which runs across all three days, starting with Ladies’ Day on Thursday. 

This year’s Style awards are set to be bigger and better than ever! Our best dressed lady will be crowned on the Thursday where we are also launching the brand new Milliners competition, followed by best dressed Gentleman on the Friday and best dressed couple on the Saturday.  

If you are looking to make your day extra special, we have limited availability in the Moët and Chandon Dining experience. Enjoy fine dining with first class Moët pairings located in the exclusive setting of The Trackside Pavilions. We have a brand new experience this year with the Moët and Chandon White Party on the Friday and Saturday of The July Festival. Enjoy the laidback surroundings, absorbing the ambient atmosphere throughout the afternoon and, following racing, an exclusive after party.

The exclusive Champions Lawn is the perfect July Course experience including a sumptuous picnic which is specifically put together for the July Festival alongside the exclusive bar area and outside seating for one of the best views in the course.

If you are not looking to dine in one of our hospitality experiences we have a range of walk up restaurants that do not require pre-booking. For our Grandstand and Paddock customers, we have our Carroll House Bistro offering a quieter location, serving a mouthwatering picnic salad and beverage options. Premier Enclosure guests can enjoy a fantastic selection of drinks perfect for the summer and accompanying food options in Stravinsky’s. As well as hot and cold food options in Mozart’s Bistro for a quick lunch.

At the conclusion of racing, join us for some incredible entertainment off the track. Our pulsating Après Racing after parties will be taking place on all

Three days of the July Festival with Nick Grimshaw taking to the DJ decks on Thursday, a special guest DJ from Heart on Friday and then on Saturday we are joined by Duke. This is a perfect ending to your day, as you dance the evening away on the wonderful July course with some guaranteed summer anthems!
