Gentlemen’s Day in support of the Armed Forces, March 24
Heroes of the armed forces will be front line at Exeter Racecourse on Sunday March 24, when the track stages its first ever Gentlemen’s Day in support of the Armed Forces.
The racecourse and Exeter-based 6 Rifles have combined forces to create an action packed day that will also be a fund raiser for the Army’s national charity, the Army Benevolent Fund.
And it won’t just be horses that pull in the crowds. 6 RIFLES will showcase some of The Rifles key equipment and capabilities, providing an interactive display involving the impressive Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle and a capability stand. There will also be a climbing wall, provided by the Army’s regional Outreach Team. The Salamanca Band and Bugles will be on hand to provide a taste of the regiments unique history and traditions.
With incredible prizes on offer for the best dressed gentlemen, including a one off chance to enjoy a ceremonial dinner at Wyvern Barracks, it’s a day to embrace the Westcountry’s armed forces.
Entry for Under 18s is free.
