Kempton Park – 80s Day

Kempton Park is the place to be for a retro day of racing with an after-party DJ set from 80s icon Martin Kemp.  Gates open at 12 noon and tickets are available.

What better way to start the weekend than an afternoon at the Sport of Kings?  With an 80s party for good measure!

The historic Kempton Park course – they’ve been racing since 1878 – is just 16 miles from central London and easily accessible.

Gates open at 12 noon ahead of an afternoon of Flat racing action.  And following the last race the after-party will get into full swing from 5.45pm with Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp taking to the stage to mix all the best hits from the 1980s.

Are you ready to party?  Pull on your leg warmers as Kempton Park gets ready for the ultimate end of summer celebration … they positively encourage you to step back in time and dress the part!
