HEREFORD'S season is now in full swing with the next fixture the popular Locals Raceday on Monday, November 5 when any local residents or businesses with an HR postcode can apply two for one tickets.

The offer is only available in advance online at and as Rebecca Davies explains: “We came up with the idea in the Autumn of 2016, since then it has really grown.

"I was very keen after our historic reopening on October 6, 2016 not to go from an attendance of 4,500 on that day to 450 on the next raceday!

“Since the opening had been announced, local people in particular had been very positive and supportive of the racecourse and it was a way to give a little back to local people, whilst also helping ensure a healthy attendance!”

As it happened, there was no need to worry about declining crowds however it is an initiative the racecourse honours today for the same reason.

They say some things are too good to be true but this really isn’t and it’s very simple; local residents can get two for one tickets as a thank you for their support of Hereford Racecourse.

The day has a local business theme as well with the Hereford & Worcester Chamber of Commerce entertaining 25 guests in a double box.

Leaders from local Hereford businesses will network before racing and listen to Champion Jockey Richard Johnson talk through the Card before enjoying one of the new luncheon menus recently introduced.

The racecourse is passionate about local business and where possible puts its own business within the county as well. Whether it is printing or cleaning those sectors in the city have benefitted from new business courtesy of the racecourse, and it is an area that is constantly being explored to determine where we can keep our spend as local as possible.

Giving as well as taking is a mantra at the heart of Hereford Racecourse.
