Cheltenham Racecourse, home to the world famous Cheltenham Festival and Gold Cup, provides a unique setting for western wedding receptions, as well as specialising in Asian weddings and large capacity events.
Bookings are now being taken for wedding receptions at Cheltenham Racecourse’s brand new Grandstand – a magnificent room at the very top of the venue, stretching the full length of the building and featuring a stunning glass rotunda overlooking the famous Cheltenham Paddock and Winner’s Enclosures.
One of the largest wedding venues in Gloucestershire, and with a spectacular backdrop of Cleeve Hill, Cheltenham Racecourse is also home to The Centaur, which is a flexible 2,600m² space, complete with its own dance floor that can cater for more than 1,100 seated guests, making it the perfect venue for lavish celebrations and Asian weddings.
For wedding parties of up to 260 guests the popular Gold Cup room, located off the central Hall of Fame, is a great choice. The self-contained suite connects by a foyer area and guests have access to a private bar.
The Centaur can cater for more than 1,100 seated guests making it the perfect venue for lavish Asian celebrations.
While for more intimate wedding breakfasts and evening receptions, the Mandarin Room and Panoramic Room are perfect options. The Mandarin Room has capacity for up to 130 guests for dinner and overlooks the racecourse, while the Panoramic Room has breathtaking views of the entire racecourse and can welcome up to 120 guests for the wedding breakfast and evening do.
Jockey Club Catering works with brides and grooms to create imaginative and bespoke menus for the reception. For couples hosting Asian weddings, outside catering tailored to ethnic cuisines can be brought in to provide the menu on the big day. All of the rooms feature private bar facilities and brides and grooms can provide their own alcohol for a corkage fee.
Couples can choose from a range of packages including everything from the master of ceremonies to the drinks and disco. While the dedicated Cheltenham Racecourse wedding coordinator can also help organise decoration, entertainment, the cake and photographer.
Unlike more traditional venues you and your wedding guests can dance into the night as the racecourse’s late license permits the bar to stay open and the entertainment to carry on till 2am.
The bride and groom can also use their own musicians and entertainment, as well as providing their own audio visual equipment to create a truly memorable atmosphere on the big day. The on-site technical manager will be available to help couples with planning their lighting and sound systems.
Set on a 360-acre estate, this heritage-rich venue lends itself to photo opportunities aplenty and on the big day the bride and groom will have access to the stunning Cheltenham Racecourse grounds for truly iconic wedding photographs.
Cheltenham Racecourse can welcome up to 1,100 people
