Paddington will be the special guest when Newmarket Racecourses holds its first Teddy Bears Picnic, this weekend.
Teddy Bears Picnic ‘Summer Saturday’ is this Saturday, with a bouncy castle, bouncy slide, garden games, soft play and toddle bouncer, plus appearances at regular intervals by Paddington.
With accompanied under-18s admitted free, and adult admission from £9, a value-for-money day out is guaranteed.
Amy Starkey, director of Jockey Club Racecourses East Region, said: “Families have already enjoyed many weekends of great fun on the Adnams July Course, combining exciting sport and off-track entertainment.
“Teddy Bears Picnic day, including appearances by Paddington, is another lovely opportunity for visitors to enjoy a family day out.
