Blow away the January blues at Cocklebarrow Races

Where: Cocklebarrow Farm, Aldsworth GL54 3PP

When: Sunday, January 27, gates open 9am

The Cocklebarrow Races is the perfect family day out in the Cotswold countryside and the perfect cure for rubbing away those January blues.

The Heythrop Point-to-Point event has in the past attracted a host of celebrities - whether it's David Cameron, Jeremy Clarkson, Alex James, Giles Coren, John Inverdale, Jilly Cooper, Xander Armstrong, Zara Philips or Liz Hurley, you are almost certain to see one or two of them on January 27.

Better still, everyone hangs out together, so it's highly probably you will be able to rub shoulders and get that selfie in!

Cocklebarrow is "the" place to be on January 27 and it promises to be bigger than ever.

There will be pony racing at the beginning of the day followed by countless quality jump races to follow.

Organisers have erected a massive heated marquee with space for you to enjoy a BYO picnic, a licensed bar, and a bucking bronco in case you need warming up some more!

For children, there is a bouncy castle, bungy running and face painting. For all ages, there is dog racing, a "tough farmer challenge" and for those not content with their Christmas presents, there is plenty of retail therapy on offer too!

Gates open from 9am. Admission is from £12.50 per person (16+) / £50 per car or £60 per car in the safe family friendly premium car park in the middle of the track.
