Grease is the word

Get ready to race, rattle ‘n’ roll at Ascot’s 1950s-inspired race meeting.

With the Grandstand transformed into a chic American diner, the retro atmosphere will be electric. 1950s dress is welcome and there will be plenty of live music, so don’t forget your dancing shoes.

On Friday, you can dive away from the jive and enjoy guys and dolls of a different kind thanks to a screening of the hit film, Grease, on a large open air cinema screen. Sit back and sing-along with this family favourite as Sandy and Danny look to rekindle their romance in high school.

On Saturday, it is back to the dancefloor as live music brings the weekend to an energetic close!

All entertainment is in the Grandstand Admission area so all can enjoy the 1950s vibe.

This is racing with a twist, and the perfect excuse to get together with friends, family or colleagues.

Ascot’s only evening meeting will have an electric retro atmosphere as the Grandstand is transformed into a chic American diner.  Set against a backdrop of classic Cadillacs and ice cream sundaes, racegoers are encouraged to wear 1950s dress.

The evening consists of six competitive races over distances from five furlongs to two miles.

After racing, sit back and sing-along to a screening of the hit film, Grease, on a large open air cinema screen.
