Beautiful Sunday morning run around part of the course. Very nice thing to do. Going was firm and it was a bit of a one horse race. Actually more of a one nag trot. Enjoyed it though.

I visit many courses across the country and this is not one of my favourites. The layout is confusing, limited toilets with huge lines of people who are drunk urinating over the floor . And that was at 3pm . It just seems to be an excuse to get drunk and ignore the horse racing . Viewing of the track... More

It gets three stars from me, and that's only because the acts were amazing.......... Not allowed to take any food or drink in, not even water. Food, such as it was, was pretty dire and overpriced, as were all drinks, be it alcohol or soft drinks. We followed instructions to the letter, ie not to take cameras or photo taking,... More

Pop concert. Mid summer and blistering heat. 4000 people and 20 single portaloos. Witnessed females having to relieve themselves in the open due to 300 metre queues for the loos on either side of the field. Absolutly humiliating I would imagine Everybody was frisked on entry in case you 'smuggled' in any food or drink - including water. £1.50 for... More

My partner and I paid £50 each for the 80s event ( normal ticket price was £25) for Gold Circle tickets. For this we thought we would get some sort of preferential treatment, but sadly not.
