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 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 Betfred Northumberland 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.
To celebrate the 135 year of the “Pitmen’s Derby” you can take advantage of our heavily discounted admission packages. Don’t delay as these offers are valid for a limited time only.
