The Stobart Rail Northumberland Plate DaySaturday 1st July 2017

One of the top class major racing events within the U.K, the Northumberland Plate has been celebrated and enjoyed by the community for 135 years!

The 2017 Northumberland Plate is proudly sponsored by Stobart Rail, who will be displaying two of their popular trucks at this year’s event, and bringing along their mobile shop.

The historic race previously known as the “Pitmen’s Derby”, formed the centrepiece of the holiday period known locally as “Race Week” for local mine workers. Today’s Plate Day attracts a diverse crowd of racegoers and many ladies treat it as the North-East’s version of Royal Ascot, but with a more relaxed and informal atmosphere.

New for 2017, there will be free kids activities and free fairground attractions on offer to keep the little ones entertained throughout the day. The activities and attractions will be located within the family enclosure, where picnics are also permitted. There is no charge for use of the attractions! All children under 18 are admitted FREE to the enclosures.

The event features a host of live music acts performing for guests throughout the day. Starting with John Gatenby & Dan McClew before racing from 11am, outside the racecourse entrance and on the Premier Lawns respectively, before it’s over to the fantastic Aaron Bayley Band after racing for all guests on the Grandstand Lawns. Then don’t miss more live music in the Border Minstrel, with acts performing late into the evening!

Enjoy the day with one of the many craft ales, beers or ciders on offer at the Horsewalk Super Bar on the Premier Enclosure Lawns, thanks to Marston’s & Box Social Breweries. To commemorate this year’s Plate Festival, there will be a Stobart Rail Northumberland Plate Pale Ale; a lighter blonde ale with subtle citrus flavours and a delicate bitter aftertaste, delivering refreshment with flavour.
