A group of us visited for the races on a Friday night. Quiet on arrival but soon filled up to create a good atmosphere. Kaiser chiefs followed straight after the races and were very entertaining.

It would be best to check on their Website at the end of this year, when their Event Timetable is viewable. It depends where you are headed after Aintree. But it is usually approx 10/10:30pm when it winds down.
