5 of the Best, 14th -15th September  

As much as this week is all about the St Leger Festival – I mean why it would not be, it’s big, it’s exciting and it is of course the world’s oldest classic – but we know that it is not everyone’s thing so we are bringing you a few alternative weekend activity suggestions as well. There is something here to suit all tastes.

St Leger itself takes place at Doncaster Racecourse, 11th – 14th September. Tickets are very low for County tickets for Saturday – snooze you lose! As well as the main festival which we would strongly recommend, there are other events taking place around Doncaster in celebration of St Leger. Read more…
