Racegoers are being invited to join in a special occasion in Staffordshire on Thursday 19 October - when the 1907 Raceday will mark the 110th year of horse racing at Uttoxeter Racecourse.
Uttoxeter Racecourse was built and opened in 1907 by a company formed to take over the licence of Keele Park Racecourse, which had recently ceased to operate. There were five days of racing in 1907 and, according to The Racecourse of Great Britain and Ireland, the meetings were largely patronised by the nobility and gentry and sportsmen in the county there being 100 members already subscribed to the Club.
The first meeting held in May, 1907, passed off successfully. So much so, that it encouraged more people to join the Race Club as well as the construction of a new luncheon room for them in time for the second meeting on Thursday 17 and Friday 18 October.
By comparison, a stylish restaurant with floor to ceiling windows giving scenic views across the entire racecourse was opened at Uttoxeter Racecourse in 2016. Boasting the name 1907, it's the perfect place to celebrate.
Newly redeveloped in 2016, if youre search of something extra special look no further than the 1907. This rustic-modern restaurant brings the outdoors indoors whilst providing magnificent panoramic views across the racecourse.
In the 1907 you can be sure to enjoy first-class service and exquisite food. Expect a sumptuous selection of starters, mouth-watering main courses, followed by a delicious array of desserts.
Package includes Premier admission ticket, a glass of Bubbly on arrival, a four-course à la carte menu, reserved table for the day, access to an exclusive viewing balcony, raceday programme, table bar service, and Tote betting facilities.
With breathtaking views across the racecourse a Private Box boasts an intimate backdrop perfect for creating memories with your guests.
