Blow away the January blues at Cocklebarrow Races

A glorious day of jump racing is in store at the Heythrop Point-to-Point at Cocklebarrow, near Northleach, on Sunday, January 23rd.

And it's also a great chance for a bit of celebrity spotting, 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 at Cocklebarrow Races.

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

Cocklebarrow promises to be bigger than ever making it "the" place to be on the 23rd January.

It is a fabulously spoiling and enjoyable day out for all the family in the Cotswold countryside - the perfect cure to rubbing away those January blues...

Gates open at 9.30am with three pony races followed by seven quality jump races through to dark. There are 11 horses entered into the seven races.

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!

The course is located at Cocklebarrow Farm, Aldsworth GL54 3PP, approximately one and a half miles south of the A40. The course can be reached via the road signposted to Lodge Park. Please do not follow signs to Aldsworth from the A40 as there will be no access to the course through the village from this direction.

Entrance will be £20 per person on the day and tickets can be bought in advance at the discounted price of £12.50 at www.cocklebarrowraces.com/tickets
