Newbury Racecourse is one of the largest conference and event spaces in Berkshire. With fantastic facilities that can be adapted to fulfil client requirements. Ensuring that events have that WOW factor everyone is looking for. Set amongst 225 acres of natural beauty, the four main buildings each offer a diverse collection of event spaces. Each one offering spectacular views of the racecourse and Parade Ring. The centre of the course is one of the most unique spaces, not only is it a driving range but it can accommodate almost any external event.
What is quirky and unusual about Newbury Racecourse? We can offer space from 10 to 22,000 guests, with a large spectrum of opportunities in between. It’s a flexible space too, from filming to team building, award nights and sporting opportunities. We pride ourselves on the flexibility the racecourse can offer, for all types of team building activities both internal and external . We have preferred suppliers on hand to assist with your team building requirements, from digital interactive games to Segway experiences.
With the majority of the £50m site redevelopment completed in 2018, the racecourse’s external areas are at a high standard. Therefore, part of the redevelopment means fantastic new spaces were launched in 2019, including The Paddock Bar, offering an unbeatable view of the Parade Ring. Delegates and guests can enjoy the rustic interior and the beautiful external space. The Members Club, launched in November 2019 in the Hampshire Stand, predominantly used on race days but also a modern space for VIP networking.
With such a large leading venue in the local area, we are conscious of making a sustainable difference. Therefore various procedures are in place across the whole site in order to do this. For instance, we have a dedicated Green Team, responsible for new initiatives and constantly looking for new ideas on how to reduce our impact. Some of these currently in place include solar panels, water recycling and the use of natural bio products. We understand the importance to event bookers that they source a sustainable venue, therefore we are proud to present our initiatives to them.
