The Derby

4 July

This year, the Investec Derby and supporting card, will be run behind closed doors. While this will necessitate the exclusion of the public from parts of Epsom Downs for 24 hours, in reality the Downs will be available to the public for more time than if the Derby had been run in the traditional way.

While we understand the temptation for local residents to try and see elements of the races from vantage points, we urge you not to. The best way to support the event and our historic heritage, to protect your health and the safety of others and to not unnecessary burden essential services is to stay at home watch the races on ITV or one of the racing channels.

Derby 1856

The Derby in around 1856 - no need for social distancing (although on examination, perhaps there should have been)!
