Beverley Racecourse's 2015 season will get off to a flying start with the unveiling of the new Premier Enclosure bars, in the first of a two year Premier Enclosure remodeling project.
The winter months have seen £650,000 of investment including the refurbishment of two stunning new Premier Enclosure bars, featuring the unique addition of reclaimed seaside carousel horses.
This building work is phase one of a two year project that will see the entire Premier Enclosure redesigned and refurbished by 2016, a project that has been entirely worked on by Yorkshire based tradesmen using Yorkshire sourced products. Investment over the winter has also seen the addition of a new digital information screen for racegoers, which will be used in partnership with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
Sally Iggulden, Chief Executive said “The latest work undertaken by the Race Company is perhaps the most exciting in recent years. Not only will it provide some of the smartest facilities for racegoers, but it will also allow the Racecourse to be used throughout the year as a wedding, conference and party venue. We are rightfully proud that the success of the racecourse in recent times has allowed us to invest so heavily not only in our facilities, but in the prize money we offer to participants in our sport. We continue to improve the racing programme, which attracts the support of the very best trainers and jockeys”.
Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire adds: “Beverley Racecourse is one of the hidden gems of East Yorkshire, showcasing some of the best racing in the north. This year, the picturesque town of Beverley plays its own part in the Tour de Yorkshire and combined with this year's fantastic prize fund and the completion of phase 1 of its refurbishment work, this unique racecourse is truly a major player in the country's flat racing scene. With facilities to match its reputation and its views, I wholeheartedly recommend it as the perfect destination, whether you're a horse racing aficionado or looking for a great day out.”
