A free event to celebrate the Olympic Torch passing through Ascot will take place on Tuesday.
Ascot Racecourse will be open to the public with attractions including a fun fair, music and refreshments from 3pm to 7.30pm.
Karen Smith, PR manager at Ascot Racecourse said: “The Torch is expected to arrive in Ascot at 4.26pm and at the Racecourse itself at 4.35pm.
“The High Street will be closed for a period of time immediately before the arrival of the Torch until just after its departure.
“ Therefore, people should plan to arrive in good time.”
