It’s East Yorkshire’s hottest summer day out, but stylish racegoers at Flemingate Ladies Day will have one eye on Christmas this year.
Beverley Racecourse has teamed up with Humberside Airport to award the winner of the coveted Most Stylish Lady competition an unforgettable weekend at the Christmas Markets of Cologne, one of the world’s most magical festive experiences.
Beverley Racecourse has teamed up with Michelin-starred chef James Mackenzie to bring a season of gastronomic delights to discerning racegoers.
The Chef and Proprietor of Michelin-starred gastropub The Pipe and Glass has created an array of mouthwatering dishes for the award-winning racecourse, reflecting his style of modern British cooking using seasonal produce from his own kitchen garden and herbarium.
Award-winning Beverley Racecourse is launching an action-packed 2019 season with an Easter-themed raceday packed with family activities, including a “magical” Easter tree adorned with 500 chocolate eggs!
The family-friendly Westwood venue has teamed up with Pocklington-based chocolatier, Butterflies Chocolate, to host the Easter tree hung with real chocolate eggs, as well as egg-decorating workshops.
Beverley Racecourse enjoyed an impressive 6% rise in visitor numbers in 2018 as 80,000 people attended its meetings to watch the thrilling action unfold.
That strong performance came despite it clashing with the World Cup, with England and Sweden locking horns on a key race day. It has filled chief executive Sally Iggulden with a great deal of optimism ahead of the 2019 season and she believes the course will continue to go from strength to strength.
Beverley Racecourse has been named as a triple finalist in the racing industry’s top awards. Beverley course has been shortlisted in three categories in the prestigious Racecourse Association (RCA) Showcase & Awards.
Beverley is the most nominated racecourse in Yorkshire and will now compete with the likes of Ascot, Aintree, Goodwood and Sandown Park for the overall Showcase Champion award.
Beverley Racecourse has revealed plans for a new grandstand – the largest single investment in the history of the venue.
The racecourse has submitted an application to East Riding of Yorkshire Council for full planning permission for the £4.8m development which will provide an enhanced customer experience and additional hospitality opportunities for racegoers.
Racegoers can expect new themed race meetings, more family-friendly days, new and improved party nights, plus, of course, exhilarating flat racing over one mile and three furlongs on the spectacular Westwood course.
The Beverley Races season gallops out of the stalls with the season opener on April 18 and is quickly into its stride with one of this year’s new highlights – Bygone Beverley – a themed raceday taking us back in time to one of the most defining decades of the 20th century.
