Tadcaster Rd York
Liverymen, Freemen & Guests
A first class day at York Races with full hospitality, this event returns to our social calendar following the positive reviews of members and guests who attended in 2015 in Past Master Gill Moore’s year. The itinerary is as follows:
10.45 – 11.00: Guests assemble for welcome drinks at the PRINCIPAL HOTEL, Station Road, York, YO24 1AA.
Drinks will be served in the EBOR ROOM, exclusively reserved for our party.
The PRINCIPAL is adjacent to York Railway Station.
11.30: Coach transfer to the Racecourse. There will be a 5-minute walk from the Coach Park to the Racecourse
12.00/12.15: Make your way to the York Race Committee Room, floor 3 of the EBOR stand. Guests must take the Elevator, not the Escalator. Drinks reception upon arrival.
This Box is widely regarded in Racing as being the second-best hospitality venue, second only to the Royal Box at Ascot – indeed, when Royal Ascot was held at York in 2005 it was used as the Royal Box. It features a private dining room serviced from a private kitchen, private restrooms, a huge lounge with antique racing art and memorabilia and, most importantly, a private viewing balcony adjacent to the finish line.
13.00/13.15: Buffet-style lunch, with wines.
14.00 (approx): Racing begins, probably 6 races.
16.15: Afternoon tea.
18.00: Leave Committee Room for coach transfer back to Principal Hotel.
