It’s Official – Get on Your Marks for Owlerton Stadium’s Grand Reopening!

Are you ready to get back to some fantastic family fun at Sheffield’s premier greyhound racing stadium? We can hardly wait to tell you the news – Owlerton Stadium will be back open for business again as of the 17th of May.

We’re thrilled to have a provisional re-opening date in place. It’s been a long, hard ride for all of us. We’ve missed you all terribly, and we know that you’re all looking forward to spending a few evenings with us cheering on your favourite dogs.

So – now really is the time for you to start booking that fantastic evening out you’ve been looking forward to with your friends and family. This is it – we are nearly at the finishing line – and it’s safe to say we could all use a bit of decompression!

 

Bookings Now Open

Owlerton has taken the decision to re-open in May very seriously. We want to make sure that it is safe for us to welcome our loyal guests back into the stands, and that has meant keeping a close eye on the lockdown roadmap set out by the Prime Minister.

We’re now open for you to book parties, get-togethers, and evenings out at Owlerton Stadium from the 18th of May onwards. This means you have around two months to start planning that ultimate end of lockdown celebration with us.

Of course, we understand that there may be changes to the roadmap along the way. We, like everyone else, have our fingers tightly crossed that conditions will be safe once again for us to open up and share our fantastic facilities with you all. Should anything change in the meantime – and should the government make any announcements to the contrary – we will update you as soon as we can.

 

What You Can Look Forward To

Heading back to Owlerton this May means heading back to all of our much-loved deals, packages, facilities, races and more. It’s going to feel like going to the dogs for the first time all over again! The weather’s getting brighter, and dog racing evenings in the cool summer air are just around the corner.

Of course, we’re preparing our Panorama Restaurant for the big re-opening. This means you’ll be able to experience the wonderful atmosphere, track views and waiting service you’ll remember from all those months ago. Of course, we’ll also make sure the restaurant opens up within safety guidelines set by the government, too! You’ll be able to grab a tote bet and enjoy a delicious basket meal while keeping your fingers crossed for those runners coming in.

We’re also bringing in brand new seasonal menus, too. Things have changed a lot since this time last year, and of course, so have our cuisine selections – but not too much! You can still enjoy the old favourites on our long-standing dinner and snack menus, but you’ll also be able to sample some new seasonal staples to really mix up the old palate. You can take a look at all the menus we’ll be bringing your way online.

Of course, greyhound racing action is coming back, and during lockdown we have kept our close links with the local Greyhound Trust. Therefore, you can be sure our runners will be healthy, happy, and raring to go by the time mid-May rolls around.

Do also look forward to checking out our fabulous selection of drinks and facilities. We offer three separate bars here at Owlerton, each with their own atmosphere and style. It’s like having a night out without having to leave the building!

And yes – the 6 Pack Plus offer, giving you a drink, a basket meal, racing access and bets – will be coming back, too. This amazingly popular racing package is one of the biggest hits with customers here at Owlerton. It’s incredible value, and frankly, we’d be mad to not bring it back with the rest of the racing fun!

 

Something to Look Forward To

It’s been a long and difficult year. There have been stops and starts, and we’ve been working hard to make sure we can re-open our doors safely, so that racing fun can return to Sheffield in a big way. We now have something even bigger to look forward to – with the lockdown roadmap easing up in the months to come, Owlerton is throwing open its doors and bringing back all the racing fun you’ll remember from early 2020!

Start booking with us online now – take a look at our online form, email us at enquiries@owlertonstadium.co.uk, or call us directly on 0114 234 3074. We’re still working behind the scenes, and we can’t wait to see you all again – it’s been a long time coming, and fingers crossed we’ll see you by the track this coming May!
