Bath Racecourse has opened a multi-million-pound conference facility, The Langridge Stand. Management hopes the new facility will significantly increase business events taking place at Bath Racecourse.
Marks and Spencer is one of the first brands to confirm an event booking at the new venue.
The stand’s Royal Crescent Suite has capacity for 300 people theatre style and there is a roof garden for gala dinners and weddings. In addition to the new space, event organisers can also use nine further suites available in the Kelston Hospitality Stand.
Jo Hall, executive director of Bath Racecourse, said: “The opening of the Langridge Stand is an exciting time for us and heralds a new era for business events at Bath Racecourse. Whilst the stand has been built to accommodate our racing business, there has been a real focus on delivering conferences and events, providing us with a great opportunity for us to grow non-race day business. Over the next three years we are looking to double the number of non-race day events.”
The redevelopment of Bath Racecourse was funded by its owners, Arena Racing Company – the largest group of racecourses in the UK. The Langridge Stand was designed by D5 Architects and constructed by The Design Works Group.
