Picnic, pints & horse racing perfection at Cartmel Races this June

The annual June race weekend at Cartmel Races has all the usual excitement plus a bit extra this year. On Friday Race Day enjoy not just high level horse racing but fabulous trade stands as well as a cacophony of Cumbrian micro breweries. Sample some of the best real ales and lagers brewed in South Cumbria including Cartmel itself, a region firmly on the micro brewery industry map.

On Sunday step into the circus and the race day aimed at families with The Acrochaps – an amazing acrobatic display, Miss Bubbilicious, The Hoola Girls and much much more. A picnic is a must topped up with some delicious treats available from the food & drinks stands.
