Racegoers are now able to return to racing across all three nations in Britain after the Welsh government announced today that the public can return to Welsh sporting events from Monday. The first race meetings in Wales after attendance rules are relaxed are due to be held at Chepstow on Friday 11 June and Ffos Las on Thursday 17th June.
Spectators returned in England and Scotland on 17 May.
Each nation has different limits on the number of spectators permitted to attend. In England, it is currently 4000, with the pilot event at Royal Ascot permitted to allow 12000. In Scotland, the limits are currently 250 at Ayr and Hamilton, with 500 allowed at Musselburgh, Perth (and Kelso where the season has now finished). These limits can be varied by agreement with the local authorities.
On Monday 7 June, Wales will move to alert level one and Welsh racecourses will be permitted to welcome up to 4,000 spectators.
