Northumberland Plate Festival

Jennings bet Northumberland Plate
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.
Plate Festival

Day 1 - Thursday 27th June

Where it all begins!

The exclusive Jenningsbet Northumberland Plate Festival is kickstarted with the competitive and valuable Class 2 race - the Seaton Delaval Handicap Stakes. The race is named after both the local village in Northumberland and a horse by the same name, who was victorious in the 1893 Northumberland Plate.

The first day of the prestigious meeting presents both high-action racing and a lively atmosphere as the festival gears up!
