We are really looking forward to welcoming visitors back to both the Food Festival and the Open Weekend this autumn!
The Henry Cecil Open Weekend 2019 proved a huge success and we would like to thank everyone involved for their invaluable support. Since the inaugural event in 2012, the Open Weekend has now raised approximately £300,000, a fantastic contribution to both local and racing charities
The Open Weekend was renamed last year to commemorate Sir Henry and his legacy, whilst continuing the event’s commitment to supporting the welfare and development of young racing staff in Newmarket, primarily through the work of our main beneficiary; Racing Welfare.
Through funds raised Racing Welfare has started the renovation of MacDonald Buchanan House which, once completed, will provide 18 units of high-quality accommodation for the young racing staff in the town.
