Counted by the Queen as the best horse race meeting in the world, you can be sure that Her Royal Majesty will be including the Epsom Derby Festival in her summer schedule of events. In fact, this year’s Epsom Derby is the first official event of the nation’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations!
No stranger to Royalty, this years Festival is in it’s 233rd year and the Queen has attended every Derby Day since 1953. Set To Music, the Queen’s filly, is set to run the Diamond Jubilee Coronation Cup too which provides the tantalising prospect of a double royal celebration.
Therefore we here think it’s not too bold to state that there has never been a better year to book Epsom Derby hospitality. With a unique and varied hospitality offering, Epsom has one of the best race day atmosphere’s around. Gleaming open top buses, each featuring their own party, line the Lonsdale and Upper Tattenham Enclosures. Guests can choose from a gourmet cold buffet provided by our luxury caterers and also with a complimentary bar. Alternatively guests may enjoy a sumptuous Carluccio’s picnic hamper which features a selection of their signature Italian dishes.
Alternatively we offer hospitality within the Tattenham Straight marquee. The Tattenham Straight marquee is one of the best value for money hospitality facilities we offer at any sporting event. The marquee is located in the heart of the action between the Open Top buses and Stands, which provides a superb atmosphere as well as great views of the horses charging up the finishing straight. Guests can view the action from a viewing balcony or stroll to up to the fences. The Tattenham Straight also features a full hospitality experience including a Pimm’s reception, 3-course meal, light afternoon tea and complimentary bar.
And of course, last but not least, there’s a range of exclusive Private Boxes to choose from within the Queen’s Stand and the Duchess’s Stand. There’s few hospitality facilities areas more exclusive than a private box located in the same stand as the Royal Family and so this provides a true wow factor! Private balconies overlook the final straight and winning post, as well as the beautiful Dons, providing a beautiful backdrop to an unforgettable day with clients and staff.
