GL events has worked with Ascot Racecourse for nearly 20 years, supplying temporary structures, tiered seating, grandstands, and supporting event infrastructure for key race dates including Royal Ascot, which we have supported as a principal supplier for six years.
Iconic Royal Ascot is attended by the Queen and recognised as one of the world’s greatest and most prestigious racing events. While the event is steeped in tradition, we have enjoyed many opportunities to innovate during Royal Ascot, where our sophisticated, multi-deck bespoke hospitality facility is re-imagined year on year to make a fresh and impactful lasting impression of the highest quality.
In addition to the hospitality structures, we supply a huge array of structures, from retail tents and event administration pagodas, to a beautiful and luxurious range of restaurants and bars in the Royal Enclosure Gardens.
Seating is supplied in the form of four grandstands in three locations, providing more than 3,200 seats. Two grandstands are erected in the Royal Enclosure, complete with flagpoles and a specially designed void, allowing for the installation of a temporary cashpoint. Nearly 800 spectators are seated on a further grandstand, installed upon a bank in front of the racecourse’s permanent main grandstand; while a final grandstand, which rises to nearly seven metres and seats more than 2,000, features internal staircases and a bespoke branded backdrop.
A dedicated GL events project delivery team is in place at Ascot Racecourse throughout the season. Our on-site team works in partnership with the client to ensure the highest levels of style, finish and quality, befitting of Royal Ascot.
