Move to the rhythm of racing and summer beats at our summer music weekend

The second day of our music weekend brings Funk to the forefront. Soul Sunset Racing is a race day all about Soul and Funk music. An immaculate pairing with summer racing, this is an unrivalled way to spend your Saturday – basking in the manicured surroundings of the world’s oldest racecourse, enjoying delicious food and drinks, experiencing the thrill of horse racing and all to the backdrop of soulful live performances.

Live performers from across the spectrum of Funk and Soul will be dotted across the racecourse, ensuring the atmosphere is just right from the moment you arrive. As racing ends, the volume will be turned up for all of us to bid farewell to another incredible race day at Chester Racecourse.

Please note: racing on this Saturday starts from 4pm onwards.
