The Build Up

The hugely successful Alternative Ascot Day Lunch will once again be held in The Voltigeur Suite, York Racecourse on Thursday 22nd June 2017 in aid of Action Medical Research for Children.  Early booking is advised.  This is the 10th year that the Alternative Ascot lunch has been held and the team are taking a break next year, so do please enjoy this year's event.


Indulge in a decadent afternoon of fun and entertainment with your friends.  Whilst this is not an actual raceday at York, and you won't be able to see the horses and their jockeys, you will enjoy all the fun of the races.  


Dress in your finery, watch live coverage from Channel 4 see all the latest fashions from Royal Ascot and cheer your favourite horse on, while enjoying a delicious two course lunch and afternoon tea. 


Set in the appropriate setting of York Racecourse, you and your guests will enjoy a drink's reception and two course lunch and coffee with afternoon tea served later in the afternoon.  Racing live from Royal Ascot will be shown on numerous televisions and fun betting will be available.  Luxury raffle, silent auction and prize for Best Dressed Lady all in aid of Action Medical Research for Children and if there are any spare moments you can also spend time browsing our exclusive boutique shops. 


Action Medical Research for Children (AMR) is a charity dedicated to building a better, healthier future for everyone.  AMR is a leading independent medical research charity specialising in children’s health. For over 60 years they have touched the lives of many thousands of families in the UK.  During the last 10 years, the Alternative Ascot Lunch has raised around £25,000 for this very worthwhile charity.
