If you’re looking for something a bit out of the unusual to do in east Newcastle then the greyhound racing at Newcastle Stadium is sure to tick many of your boxes.
If you’re out in a group of friends then greyhound races provides a fun and exciting way to spend an evening. If lady luck is on your side it may even be a profitable too. Running regularly throughout the week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings, with morning races on a Wednesday and afternoon races on Saturday there’s sure to be a good time to go too. At the stadium there’s a restaurant and bar, meaning that even without betting on the greyhound races you can still have a fun and enjoyable evening out.
Greyhound races can also be set up for specific nights out such as hen and stag parties, christmas parties and other party occasions. For these you’ll need to book in advance and pay a per-head fee. When it comes to betting you can make a minimum stake of £1, so it’s quite affordable to make bets throughout the evening. Even if you’re unsuccessful at winning you’ll still have all the excitement of following the outcome of the races and having a good time out of food and drinks with friends.
