It’s the return of the tash as Nottingham Racecourse's annual Beer Festival continues as The Castle Rock Brewery Beer’d Festival.

The event will once again be celebrating all things facial hair with the second running of The Grand-Tashional. Following the Grand-Tashional, the racecourse will then have a great evening of racing.

The lawn marquee is where all of the action happens off the track. Enjoy live music and Castle Rock Brewery showcasing their excellent range of brews.

The Nottingham Racecourse Grand-Tashional

You've seen the Grand National. Now enter The Nottingham Racecourse Grand-Tashional. Back for 2019!

During the Beer'd Festival (10th May), Nottingham Racecourse are again running the Grand-Tashional. The Grand-Tashional will be a 1/2 furlong (100 metre) sprint with the winner collecting a furkin (40 litres) of ale & a meal for 2 at The Embankment courtesy of Castle Rock Brewery.

Plus if you are selected to compete in the Grand-Tashional, you will receive two free general admission tickets to the raceday.

No horses will run in the Grand-Tashional, it’s down to you and your facial hair! Whether you've grown it yourself or bought it from a shop, all are welcome. Any shape, size or style you like, just make sure that it can stay on your face for the duration of the race!

Tickets are now available via the Nottingham Racecourse website.
