The Coral Welsh Grand National will return to Chepstow Racecourse on Thursday 27th December. Alongside the 7 jump races that will take place on the day (including the biggest race in Wales), there will be lots of Welsh-themed entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.
This includes stunning vocal performances from the Chepstow Musical Youth Theatre, The Bridgend Male Voice Choir, and jazz band The Hipcats. There will also be a Tom Jones tribute act to provide the post-race entertainment in the Bonanza Boy marquee.
Throughout the day, there will be plenty of classic Welsh delicacies and other delicious treats for you to tuck into. From BBQ pulled pork, to Welsh faggots with mashed potato, roast beef, pizza and more! You can also grab a hot drink from the new Cwtch Coffee shop to keep you warm.
