The Hampshire Stand

The first built…

Built in 1905, The Hampshire Stand was the first building at Newbury Racecourse and has been transformed over the years into a welcoming space fit for premium   racegoers and high profile corporate delegates. Maintaining its original heritage, this versatile facility is ideal for conferences, parties and dinners, combining a contemporary setting with outstanding panoramic views over the racecourse and finish line.

Highlights include, Wi-fi across the whole building, two reception areas on the ground floor creating a unique boutique feeding space that works well for welcoming guests or post event entertainment. Networking areas and bar are located on the first floor which offer catering space that lead to a private lawn on the track side, amidst the action! On the top floor there is floor to ceiling windows with blinds for full white-out and catering areas for post networking.

…because we are ‘more than just a racecourse’.

Newbury Racecourse was the perfect venue for us to hold our event, they were very accommodating with our specialist requirements and went out of the way to make it a huge success, It was so good we have rebooked for a larger 3 day event this summer!

I would just like to thank you for all the work you put in to organise our show for us. It was one of the slickest shows I have managed and that was helped massively by you and your team
