Friday 5th July, 6.00-9.30pm, The Hunt Paddock, Stratton Audley, OX27 9BT
In 2017 Stratton Audley held a sell-out success ferret racing evening and by popular demand, it is once again staging the event with one of the country’s few remaining professional teams returning with their feisty ferrets.
The first of the 8 races will start at 6.30pm with gates open from 6.00pm. Food and a bar, raffle and a Tote plus other supporting activities will make for a great fun-filled-family-friendly-ferret-evening. All tickets must be purchased in advance to allow for catering. So book now to avoid disappointment. AMPLE OFF ROAD FREE PARKING.
Tickets cost just £10 for adults to include entry and a meal of fresh fish & chips, £7 for 5-12 years of age (for entry plus the exact same meal as adults) and kids under 5 are free (excludes food). Note: you can request a sausage instead of fish.
The event has been made possible by our wonderful sponsors – we are extremely grateful to them!
Also thanks to Mr J O’Neill, The Jenkinson Family, Mr M Hackney
All monies raised will be split between the Village Improvement Fund, the Church Fabric Fund and Sobell House.
