Derby Final Preparations are well under way!


With The Star Sports English Greyhound Derby Final soon upon us, it’s all systems go here at Towcester Racecourse and everyone here has got ‘Derby Fever!’ Since signing the contract to host this prestigious event at the start of the year, we have been planning this momentous occasion and those 6 months have simply flown by.

It will be the first time Towcester Racecourse has staged this event and we are expecting around 5000 people in attendance. Our VIP Hospitality Packages sold out almost instantly, as the greyhound community did not want to miss out on what will certainly be a day to remember.

We are catering for almost 1000 VIP guests in our 2 Restaurants, 8 VIP Boxes and huge Westmead Hawk Pavilion Marquee. All Served by 120 waiting staff, 80 bar staff and 30 managers and we are expecting to serve 15,000 pints and 2000 Glasses of Champagne!

If you’re coming to the Star Sports Greyhound Derby Final be sure to bring a blanket or folding chair to sit on. Dress for the weather and fingers crossed the sun will shine again!

Get ready for an evening packed with entertainment, not only by the best greyhound race in the world with the winning greyhound taking home a prize purse of £175,000, but also by roaming bands, stilt walkers, bubble artists, jugglers, many food & drink outlets including the distinctive Hobmog Bar in the Hobgoblin village with trackside seating, a London Double Decker Bus with its own vintage bar inside, the Caffè Lambro Prosecco and Coffee vintage van, Pimms & Gin Bars serving all kinds of specialist varieties and all topped off with a DJ set from top radio DJ Jo Whiley for the after racing celebrations, from 10.45pm until midnight.

So put Saturday 1st July in your diary and book your tickets for the best night out in Northamptonshire!
