Festival Zone Upgrade

£35 per person

Festival Zone is the new name for Tattersalls but is better than our previous enclosure. Why? Because you can choose exactly where you go, within this zone, to make the most of your festival experience.
Course-side, you can watch the action from the unreserved seats at The Chair, or The Embankment area as well as the lower part of the trackside viewing area, as well as watch the runners and riders at the beginning and end of each race in the Parade Ring. In Grand National Ave, you can access the Moet et Chandon Champagne Bar as well as the Princess Royal food court. Turn right from here and you’ll find the Red Rum Garden, home to after-racing DJ-sets, such as Jo Whiley, and the Ladies Day Style Award. If entertainment is a big plus for you, the Aintree Pavilion is a lively hub of both music and sport, with bands such as the Lightening Seeds performing after racing.
