Last night I took a trip to Walthamstow Racecourse. I’ve never been ‘to the dogs’ before but I’ve heard about this old stadium and seen it in the film Snatch and Blur’s Parklife artwork. Unfortunately it is due to close for good, last race is on August 16th. A real shame considering the charisma and heritage it has. In recent years it has failed to attract the crowds it had in its heyday and closure has become inevitable. I would urge anyone who has never been to get down before it closes, it’s cheap, fun and a real laugh, what more could you ask for on a night out? Its worth going just to see the fabulous neon signage and 1930's architecture.
