Newbury adds comedy value to corporate race days

A new – and free – twist has been given to the corporate hospitality packages at Newbury Racecourse, home of the famous Hennessy Gold Cup, with the aim of providing an “extra treat to round off a day at the races”.
Three comedians will be taking to the stage in the Racegoers Restaurant after popular racing days, including the Newbury Gold Cup on Saturday 28 February, Juddmonte Lockinge Day on Saturday 16 May and finally Armed Forces Day on Saturday 24 October. The two-hour session will be included at no extra cost as part of the racing hospitality package, adding further value when entertaining clients or staff.
“Newbury is home to some of the finest horseracing in the country with hospitality to match,” said Kate Walthew, marketing and PR manager for Berkshire racecourse. “After indulging in a sumptuous three-course meal in our panoramic restaurant, what better way to end an evening than in the company of some fantastic comic talent?”
The comedians performing will be: Mike Wilmot, best known for numerous appearances on BBC TV’s Never Mind the Buzzcocks; Hal Cruttenden, who alongside TV performances is a regular at the Comedy Store and Jongleurs; and Kevin McCarthy, who has supported comedy greats, such as Jack Dee and Lee Evans.

Tickets are £60 per person for each raceday and comedy show, with members discounts available, and includes racing and three-course lunch.
