Chester Event News

Savour a day at Chester with Silks!

Grab your racecards and finest attire! The Chester May Festival is moving swiftly into view! Three spectacular days of racing await at this treasured flat racing venue, with proceedings getting underway for Chester City Day on Wednesday 4th May 2022. Thursday sees the return of Ladies Day whilst Friday plays host to one of the most famous and historic races of the season for the very first time, the Chester Cup.

Whether looking to entertain your prized clients, enjoy a day with the family, or simply get the weekend off to a racing start, a visit to Chester Racecourse presents the ideal opportunity to rally the troops and enjoy the excitement of live-on-turf action.

It is the hospitality, however, that is arguably the event’s real showstopper.

Eventmasters’ Silks facility has established itself as a firm favourite among racegoers in recent years. Offering prime viewing from its premier course-facing position on the racecourse, it allows guests to soak up the sun-splashed action in true style.

But a prime vantage point certainly isn’t the only highlight at this splendid corporate setting. A cordial prosecco reception, four-course luncheon, and all-day complimentary bar are also among the package’s other signature benefits!
