Epsom Downs Racecourse is the home of one of the most iconic events in the British sporting and social calendar – The Investec Derby Festival.
Derby Day dates back to 1780 and is still the greatest flat race in the world. The Derby remains the race that everyone wants to win, as horses and riders are pushed to their limit around the unique and challenging course.
As well as race fixtures, Epsom Downs regularly hosts private and corporate events throughout the year, including exhibitions, boxing & cage fighting as well as conferences and a very busy Christmas party season. There are regular opportunities for work both in evenings and weekends, as well as throughout the working week. Epsom Downs is also able to offer opportunities to its staff at our other local racecourses, Kempton Park and Sandown Park which are staffed by the same team
