Chester's finest race days return to the Roodee

We’re delighted to be once again holding our famous Boodles May Festival 2022!

In 2020, the May Festival was cancelled due to the pandemic, and in 2021, we were also forced to race behind closed doors without a crowd. As a result this will be the first May Festival at Chester Racecourse in 2 years with a crowd and it has been sorely missed.

Our most popular meetings at Chester Racecourse, the May Festival sees the most thrilling races take to the Roodee. This means there’s no better time to attend the world’s oldest racecourse, and soak up the unmissable atmosphere. Watch as the horses thunder past you towards the final furlong and experience the roar of the crowd as the jockeys cross the finish line. The Boodles May Festival lends itself well to hospitality. It’s an ideal time to treat yourself, your family or even your employees to an exceptional days racing and fun. So book today to make sure you don’t miss out on the first race day of Chester’s 2022 season, and the first May Festival with a crowd on Chester’s track since 2019.
