The dates are Thursday 14th November and Wednesday 20th November , there is a maximum of 30 places on each day , we will progress the list for 14th November first and if this fills up , we will commence a new list for 20th November
Entry is through the gates on Grand National Avenue which is off Ormskirk Road ( A59) Aintree Station is opposite (park in front of the Princess Royal Grandstand straight ahead as you drive in) , meet at 1.45 – 2.00 pm . Tour should last approx. 60 minutes.
We will then gather at the Princess Royal Reception where we will meet Jessica Dalgleish and then be taken to the Community Hub to meet Jane Clarke , the Historian.
