If you’ve not been to Chepstow Racecourse it’s in a lovely part of the country with some spectacular views. Chepstow Racecourse opened its gates in the early 1920’s and has since blossomed into a bustling track that is home to the Welsh Grand National. From just a pretty park, this venue is now home to racing fixtures and music events throughout the year, including A Taste of Wales.
Last year it was the venue for some really huge outdoor gigs including GEORGE EZRA and LIONEL RICHIE. We were there for both those events and you can look back at them by click on the artist name link. Our video in the features gives you a good view of the race course too.
