At the Races

It's never too early to start planning for Chester races 2018 as it won’t be long until they’re off and the race season is here!

The season starts with the May Festival on Wednesday 9th May, running for 3 days. The Boodles May Festival includes Ladies Day (Thursday 10th) and the Chester Cup Day (Friday 11th) and is the most highly anticipated 3 days of the racing calendar. From the excitement of the races, the glamour of the crowd and the scintillating atmosphere you don’t want to miss out. There’s nowhere better than BarLounge for your pre-and post-race base.

May also plays host to the MBNA Roman Day on Saturday 26th May celebrating Chester being the oldest racecourse in the UK. Start and finish this celebrated meet with us at one of Chester’s most established bars.

We have a range of winning packages including brunch, race-day platters and special champagne deals catering for corporate and none corporate bookings.
