If you fancy a drink at Chester Races this year, and want to take your own booze, you won't be able to take your alcohol further than the designated car park picnic area, following a no-drinking ban that was launched at the Roodee back in 2015.
Many had strong opinions when the Racecourse decided to prohibit alcohol from the open course last June, which they said was a response to comments from those affected by the influx of 'anti-social' racegoers.
Last year was the first race season that attendees were not permitted to bring alcohol into the open course on foot.
Instead, race-goers were invited to picnic and enjoy a 'moderate' amount of alcohol before entering the course.
All alcohol must be consumed in the picnic area before entering the open course.
However, race-goers are permitted to bring food and soft drinks in sealed plastic containers onto the open course.
Punters will still be able to buy alcohol via independent vendors on the open course as usual.
