More information from organisers:

The theme for this year’s festive family racing day is A Nutcracker Christmas.

The day features the most valuable meeting of Ascot’s Jumps season including the Grade One Howden Long Walk Hurdle.

Off the track, there’s a sensational selection of seasonal food and drink, as well as an abundance of festive entertainment set to delight racegoers of all ages.

The traditional fairground rides and candle-lit carol singing with the Ascot Brass Band remain firmly part of the entertainment. Father Christmas and his reindeer will be in attendance.

See if you can spot the Nutcracker Toy Soldiers roaming about the racecourse and become a princess, your favourite superhero or even one of Santa’s little helper elves at our face painting stand.

The, see if you have what it takes to become a young rider yourself as you embark on one of the Pony Rides.

After a busy day, you can also snuggle up to some festive stories with Mrs Claus In The Grandstand
