How about spending Boxing Day watching horse racing at Lincolnshire's own course?
BOXING Day horse racing at Market Rasen Racecourse is as much a part of Christmas as turkey, mulled wine and crackers.
It’s being billed as Lincolnshire’s big day out at Christmas time.
And, with 10,000 people descending on the market town from all over the region, this is one of the most popular annual sporting events and family days out in Lincolnshire.
In a new development, spectators on Boxing Day will receive a free ticket to a regular fixture of their choice at the racecourse in 2013.

Visitors have every incentive to buy their Boxing Day tickets in advance and get along early to the racecourse – for they will save money and avoid traffic jams.
Prices start at £10 for adults – and all accompanied under 18s are admitted free of charge.
The gates of the racecourse will open at 10am for a first race time of 12.25pm.
The last of the six races, with the feature event during the afternoon being the Clugston Lincolnshire National, is at 3.20pm.
Pip Kirkby, the racecourse’s general manager, said: “We’re all geared up for a great family Christmas day out in Lincolnshire with our Boxing Day racing fixture.
“It is always our most popular racing day of the year, with crowds since the turn of the millennium averaging 10,500.
“We’re laying on new attractions this year, including skating and free meals for 200 children. Spectators will also get a free ticket back to the racecourse in 2013.
“With all accompanied children admitted free and advance admission for adults starting at just £10, Boxing Day at Market Rasen Racecourse is also a very affordable Christmas day out for families.”
