The William Hill Winter Festival is one of the highlights  for jump fans during the festive season. Day one of the two day showpiece, on Boxing Day, features three Grade 1 races including the Festival’s flagship race, the William Hill King George VI Chase  which has been won by some of the great steeplechasers including Desert Orchid, Best Mate, Kauto Star and, most recently, Silviniaco Conti. There will be plenty of other entertainment for all the family.
Kempton Park Racecourse is a horse racing track near to Sunbury-on-Thames in Surrey, around 16 miles south-west of Central London. It is one of the few courses that features a National Hunt and an all weather flat racetrack.
