Hurrah! It’s almost half term!

Otford Races postponed

ln response to growing concern about rising rates of Covid 19 locally, we have reluctantly decided to postpone our much anticipated Race Night until 1 April 2022. Put the date in your diary, and do keep an eye on our website and social media for more information nearer the time.

If you have never been to Ascot and always wondered what all the fuss was about, then try Otford Races first! Entry to the event will be £5.00 per person payable on the night. Doors will open at 6.45pm and the first race, one of eight, will take place at 7.15pm. There will be a cash bar and refreshments, so why not get a party together?
