Music at Newbury
Newbury Racecourse is also the venue for a whole host of other events. Having its own train station (with extra services running on race days) the course is an ideal location for other large events. Easy transport and great facilities for hospitality have lead to many other events being held there in the past.
This includes a large number of music concerts. Most notably Westlife, Jess Glynne, Olly Murs, Craig David and Rudimental have all performed there in recent years.
Newbury Racecourse Hospitality
Of course, being a top-class racecourse with Grade 1 races means that Newbury is a wonderful day out to treat clients or celebrate with guests. To help you have the most incredible time at the racecourse, there are luxurious hospitality facilities.
Expect Champagne receptions in all three facilities at the Racecourse, as well as three-course fine-dining, afternoon teas, and access to exclusive enclosures.
The Queen’s Birthday at Newbury
Queen Elizabeth II spent her 86th birthday at the racecourse, watching the day from the Royal Box. She had two horses entered that day, Sequence ridden by Ryan Moore and Momentary ridden by Hayley Turner. Unfortunately, neither horse won the races, but that didn’t seem to deter her from having an excellent day at the races.
