Reading Time: 4 mins

Christmas isn’t too far away now, which means more and more people will be getting their last-minute bookings in for parties leading up through December. But what if you’re still thinking about where you’d like to head to for a Christmas bash? Whether you need to set up something special for your office, or want to take friends and family out for a festive night to remember, there are plenty of great reasons to head to Owlerton Stadium. As well as being a fantastic venue for racing fun all through the year, we’re also well-known for being the perfect hosts of a Christmas event Sheffield guests can head to year after year.

Festive Racing Fun

Our Christmas parties are open for booking now – so make sure you get your numbers together and get in touch! Racing fun at Christmas is always a spectacle at Owlerton Stadium. As well as hosting fantastic race galas and meetings throughout the year, throughout late November and into December we set up special festive parties. We’re ready on hand with drinks menus, festive feasts and more.

What’s more, you’ll be able to take advantage of racing packages so that you can win big on the dogs while you’re letting your hair down. Open from early evening until late, you’ll be able to book entry with us from just £3 per person, adding on any drinks, food and hospitality packages you like on top.

Party Until Late

Looking for a Christmas party Sheffield can be proud of? You’re going to want to take in an evening of greyhound racing action, followed by an in-house DJ and party playlist until the early hours. Our in-house DJ will be on hand to crank out the festive tunes and party hits every weekend from 29th November until 28th December. Get your group to request some old favourites and really cut loose long after the racing has finished for the evening. Our expansive party lounge will give you plenty of room to get down and socialise.

What’s more, we’re proud to be offering a late bar stacked with all your favourite drinks and even a few special cocktails. The fun doesn’t stop there, however, as once the bar closes down for the night, you can head next door to Napoleons Casino for a spin on the roulette wheel. It’s free admission, so what are you waiting for? Make a real evening out of it.

Festive Fare

Our in-house restaurant is popular with guests throughout the year for its extensive menu of traditional meals and treats. However, when Christmas rolls around, we like to make things that little bit extra special! Easily seating 300 people, there is plenty of space here for you to make room with your party and to take on our superb festive menu – all four courses of it!
We’re serving turkey with all the trimmings, Yorkshire puddings, sirloin steak and more besides. We also have a variety of options for vegan and vegetarian diners, too. From just £25 per person, you can settle down for a fantastic four-course Christmas spread while you’re waiting for your dogs to come in! Of course, we’ll also provide you with traditional Christmas crackers for that little bit of extra fun, as well as a fabulous drinks menu to help your dinner go down with a fizz!

Our Christmas packages at our restaurant also provide you with up to four hours of live greyhound racing, meaning you get your racecard included as standard. You’ll also benefit from a full waiting service, meaning that you can place bets and enjoy drinks top-ups while you keep your fingers crossed for a big win.

Go Executive

If you’re looking for a Christmas event Sheffield or elsewhere with a difference, why not go full VIP? Our fantastic executive boxes are designed to provide you with the ultimate in hospitality. Not only do you get access to a private balcony offering an incredible panorama of the track, but you’ll also be able to pick from a superb buffet menu crammed with festive favourites. You’ll also get access to your own private minibar and a complete waiting service to your box.

If you’re interested in a more private party this festive season, you’re going to want to reserve yourself a box for your group. We have spaces available from £25 per person, but hurry – as our executive options are amongst our most popular! You can even book in for our full VIP box, which will comfortably hold up to 20 people, or when merged together, up to 80. What a great way to see out the end of 2019!

Get yourself a racecard, a hot meal free bets and a select drink from our menu. What’s more, you can still take advantage of our fantastic DJ and live bar throughout November and December.
