Great Racing Sunday

Ascot, Chester and Newmarket (01344 625912) tomorrow, 11.30am, adults from pounds 3, under-15s free

If you don't know your starting price from your starter's orders this could be the day to fill that knowledge gap. Bouncy castles, face-painting and street entertainers, plus free creche facilities are being laid on at leading racecourses this Sunday in a bid to encourage more families to follow the sport.

Children's Festival

The adults have had their festival; now it's the kids turn - let's hope it's equally mud-free! There are more than 20 shows a day, plus everything from giant ballponds and inflatable animals to a velcro wall to leap at. NS
