GOODWOOD Racecourse is proving it’s about more than just horseracing as it unveils a top international line-up of DJs.

In June DJs Boy George, Chris Evans and Mark Ronson take to the decks after the racing has finished.

The Parade Ring will be transformed after the last race into a unique dance floor for racegoers to dance until late at the Three Friday Nights meetings.

To make it a night to remember racegoers can book their own private entertaining suite.

Goodwood Racecourse has invested £500,000 on a refurbishment programme of the hospitality boxes in the Sussex Stand, which offer spectacular panoramic views across the Racecourse and Sussex Downs.

Boy George will be on the decks on June 3, followed by Chris Evans on June 10 and Mark Ronson on June 17.

Free buses to the racecourse will run to and from Midhurst, Petworth and Petersfield town centres. There will also be free shuttle buses running from Chichester train station throughout the evening.

Racing begins on April 30, kicked off at Goodwood with a garden party.
