At Chelmsford City Racecourse there are 10 unique venues that you can choose from or combine to create the ideal space to celebrate with your guests on your special day. Indoors we can cater for up to 600 seated, or 2000 standing. If you choose to utilise our outside space you can welcome an astounding 10,000 guests.
The Queen Charlotte
With remarkable views, The Queen Charlotte is a fully equipped, draped, private marquee wonderful for up to 250 guests seated with a dancefloor. Featuring a brand-new beautiful emerald green art-deco bar and a private tiled patio wraparound terrace that includes comfortable contemporary seating. The marquee is ideal for racing enthusiasts who may wish to host their wedding on a raceday. This venue works perfectly for seated dinners, speeches and evening dancing all in one space.
Our new Champagne Bar
A brand new area due to be completed by summer 2024, this is a more intimate space for smaller guest numbers. This venue features a state-of-the-art circular champagne bar as the centrepiece, stocked with the finest wines, champagnes and cocktails in sumptuous surroundings. This space works brilliantly for canapes and drinks receptions as one element of your big day, or the main evening event space for a smaller reception. Intimate booth seating and incredible views of the site and finishing line make this a very special place to be.
The Club Restaurant and Lounge
This is a fine-dining restaurant and our private members lounge. The restaurant will be completely refurbished in January 2023. The restaurant boasts panoramic views of the racecourse and offers the best viewpoint over the track and beautiful surrounding grounds. This area pairs perfectly with the Champagne Bar (situated directly below). Clients can have their welcome drinks and canapés in the Champagne Bar before heading up to The Club for the wedding breakfast and evening entertainment.
