Uttoxeter Racecourse has announced it will welcome back spectators for the first time in more than a year later this month.

Punters have not graced the grounds since the Midlands Grand National in March 2020, just days before the first national lockdown was announced.

But now, 14 months later, race-goers will be allowed through its gates once more.

The sports venue has announced that it will welcome the public back on Sunday, May 30 for an afternoon of jump racing.

Social distancing and Covid protocols will be in place but bookmakers and card-only food and drink bars will be on-site.

Face coverings will be required, aside from those who are exempt, and all bookings must be made in advance.

A spokesperson for the racecourse said: “Uttoxeter Racecourse are delighted to welcome back spectators for a Sunday afternoon of jump racing.

“We look forward to welcoming you back to our racecourse soon!”

General admission tickets have already sold out ahead of the much-anticipated meeting.
