Cheltenham Festival 2016

The Cheltenham Festival has grown to attract 250,000 visitors to the four day highlight of the jump racing calendar, with £4.1 million prize money contested across 28 races culminating in the Gold Cup. Arena Group supported Cheltenham Racecourse, a Jockey Club Racecourse, with the expansion of facilities to accommodate the increase in hospitality tickets.

 

The 125m long triple decker was the largest ever installed alongside the home-straight, including the 55m Arcus Long Run facility with cantilever balcony. This venue hosted hosting a range of bespoke private suites along with Silks and Chez Rous restaurants, for clients and guests of The Jockey Club, Needham and Needham’s, Keith Prowse, Front Runners. The structure incorporated full kitchen, bathroom and rear access facilities on all levels, along with Tote betting booths, phone charge points and cash machines.

The new two storey Guinness Pavilion combined a public bar with a VIP hospitality area overlooking the famous Guinness village, which incorporated a 756 capacity tiered clearview™ seating grandstand in the upper level to give great views over the finish line. Also facing the course on the ground level was an exclusive VIP hospitality sponsors’ suite for Betway, complete with Arena Deck viewing platform and tiered standings.

 

Spaceworks, Arena Group’s furniture hire specialists, provided a wide range of furniture across 22 areas of the Cheltenham Festival site, including The Jockey Club Chalet, Final Fence Restaurant and the Chez Roux Boxes. The array of furniture supplied from the company’s extensive inventory, included Bravo dining tables, white Olympus chairs and Chesterfield sofas.
