Thirsk Racecourse has been a hive of activity this winter with the redevelopment of some its dining and bar facilities, and the grounds are set for the opening of another fantastic season of racing. There are 15 race days at Thirsk this year, commencing on 12th April and concluding on 16th September, and as always there will be a host of themed race days to look forward to, ranging from Irish Day to Jazz Night. If you're a fan of the fizzy stuff, one of the highlights of the calendar will undoubtedly be Champagne Tuesday – taking place on Tuesday 17th June, it coincides with the first day of Royal Ascot, and promises to see a flurry of champagne corks popping as the winners thunder past the post. To celebrate this quintessentially British summer racing affair, Living North have teamed up with Thirsk Racecourse to offer three pairs of Premier Badges. 17th June, Thirsk Racecourse, Station Road, Thirsk 01845 522276 www.thirskracecourse.net
