Octonauts at Royal Windsor Racecourse

Sound the Octo-Alert! Captain Barnacles and Kwazii, from the hit TV show Octonauts, are making a special appearance on 25 May 2015 at Royal Windsor Racecourse’s late May Bank Holiday Family Fun Day.

Children will be excited to know that throughout the day they will be able to meet the two intrepid underwater explorers; brave polar bear Captain Barnacles and ex-pirate cat Kwazii.

There will also be a fabulous traditional fun fair and face painting to enjoy and for any hopeful young jockeys attending, pony rides will be available too. All of the children’s entertainment is free of charge and starts at 10.30am, two hours before the first race.

Book in advance to save £5 on admission to all enclosures and entrance is FREE for racegoers under the age of 18 when accompanied by an adult – adults can be responsible for up to three children.
