Regarding Protests

There has been speculation about potential disruptions by the animal rights group ‘Animal Rising,’ given their previous targeting of events like the Grand National and the Derby. However, no high court injunction will be applied for by Ascot Racecourse.

Ascot officials have expressed confidence that existing legislation is sufficient to handle any incidents of disruption or disorder following consultations with Thames Valley Police. The officials also confirmed their support for peaceful protests and ensured they would be accommodated outside the racecourse.

With increased police presence, additional security measures, and enhanced CCTV provision, Ascot is gearing up to ensure a safe and undisturbed event. Their close collaboration with the Thames Valley Police and security providers aims to prevent any disruption during the Royal Ascot.
