Hamilton Park Racecourse has announced a £250,000 investment in its visitor experience ahead of its upcoming racing season.
The leading Scottish venue has revealed its latest plan to further improve customer facilities, following last year’s game-changing £800,000 refurbishment programme.
Before the 2018 season kicks off in May, all hospitality boxes, situated on level three of the grandstand, will be upgraded with luxury fixtures, fittings and interiors, and have been designed to reflect the standards of last year’s upgrades. Braveheart’s Bar will see new toilet facilities installed, while the Owners and Trainers bar will undergo a revamp.
All improvements around the grounds will be complete before gates open to race-goers on Sunday 6 May for the Totepool Family Raceday featuring Scotland’s first National Chef, Gary Maclean.
The move comes after the relaunch of the racecourse’s grandstand restaurant, bar facilities and hospitality areas last year, and hot on the heels of the announcement of a new £10 million hotel in the racecourse’s grounds.
On the course, there will also be further investment in the race programme, following last year’s record-breaking prize money of more than £1 million.
Vivien Currie, Chief Executive at Hamilton Park Racecourse, said: “We pride ourselves on delivering a first class customer experience and I’m delighted to announce this latest investment in our facilities ahead of the new season.
“Having had our planning application approved for our new hotel just before Christmas, and all these improvement works ongoing around the racecourse site, it’s an incredibly exciting time for us, and we can’t wait to unveil the results of the team’s hard work to improve the facilities when the new season arrives in May.
“We’re already experiencing high demand for our hospitality offering from guests having seen the transformation last year, and there are lots of exciting fixture announcements to come in the weeks ahead, with Dermot O’Leary already announced as our headliner for Ladies’ Night in August. This season is already shaping up extremely well!”
