Tickets for the New Year’s Day event at Musselburgh are selling out fast, with most VIP packages already sold out, meaning those hoping to start 2020 off with a win had better move quickly.

The Betway New Year’s raceday, which sold out last year, promises to be a great day out for the whole family filled with spectacular jump racing, a racing programme of over £100,000 as well as the famed New Year’s Sprint, one of the most historic athletic events in the world.

This year’s event promises to delight foodlovers of all tastes with complimentary canapes provided on arrival.

Free tasty treats include Scottish venison and blueberry chipolatas, Isle of Mull cheddar and foraged truffle donuts and Lochaber smoked cheese tartlets with damson plum.

There will be plenty of seasonal food and drink throughout the day including boozy hot chocolate, haggis street food, ‘Poke of Pigs’ (pigs in blankets with cranberry sauce), as well as gourmet hot dogs and dirty fries from favourite street food vendors, Dog n Bon.

This year’s event will also see improved bar facilities and pop-up bars dotted around the course and there will also be ceilidh music from the upbeat Kilter and a DJ set from the quirky-but-cool Funkwagen.

Return coach transfers from locations across Edinburgh and the Lothians are also available to take racegoers to and from the event and can be purchased on the Musselburgh Racecourse website.

Tennis coach Judy Murray OBE said she was looking forward to the event.

“I'm so looking forward to spending New Year’s day at Musselburgh Races again, she said.

“It’s always a great day out and the very best way to welcome 2020 with friends, family and a bit of healthy competition.”

If you want to spoil your friends or loved ones on New Year’s Day at Musselburgh Racecourse then why not book a VIP Yurt which are available for exclusive hires for parties of 12 with welcome fizz, gourmet burger and chips and a private seated area next to the racetrack.
