Newbury Racecourse has introduced a new hospitality range ahead of a full year of racing in 2017. In response to increasing demand for hospitality offerings at events such as Betfair Super Saturday, Al Shaqab Lockinge Day, Thursday Nights Live and the Gold Cup Meeting, the Racecourse has designed three options to suit all budgets.
Aiming to create a simple yet memorable hospitality experience for visitors, the sporting venue’s packages reflect the diverse expectations of its expanding customer base.
The Classic package entails traditional hospitality perfect for informal entertaining which is served in an exclusive suite in the Berkshire Stand. This is inclusive of a Champagne reception, a three course lunch (either plated or buffet), a selection of cheese and biscuits, fresh filter coffee and English tea with chocolate truffles and a pay-as-you-go bar.
The Elite package is aimed at racing newcomers with the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes as well as a talk from the Racecourse’s tipster.
The Champion option offers guests the very best in hospitality with a dedicated host throughout the day as well as a Champagne reception, a three course lunch, a selection of cheese and biscuits, brandy, tea and fresh coffee with chocolate truffles, a full afternoon tea, a bar inclusive of wines, beers and soft drinks and a tipster talk.
Also on offer is the Royal Box Dining package which allows delegates to enjoy a premium hospitality experience in the historic Royal Box. This experience is enhanced by a four course seated lunch and a classic afternoon tea.
Tracy Skinner, Head of Sales at Newbury Racecourse, said: “By introducing new hospitality options we hope that we will be adding another layer to the rich experience on offer at Newbury Racecourse. We have tailored our packages in response to feedback from our clients to ensure that there is something for everyone, and we are thrilled to have already received enquiries”.
Prices for these new hospitality choices range from £145 to £315 per person.
