A CHRISTMAS shopping fayre will follow an afternoon's jump racing at Ascot.

The Prince's Countryside Fund Racing Weekend and Country Living Christmas Shopping Fair will take place on Friday 24 and Saturday November 25.

The Christmas shopping fayre will allow racegoers to enjoy the day's sport, while also getting their festive gifts at the same time.

The fayre will include gifts, from handmade crafts, to festive delicacies, ensuring there is something for everyone.

Next month, when the festive season is in full flow, there will be a Christmas racing weekend held on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 December.

The weekend offers up jump racing, as well as festive entertainment for those not as interested in the horses.

There will be a special visit from Santa Claus and his reindeer, as well as carol singing in the Grandstand, fairground rides and festive food and mulled wine.
