Aintree Racecourse has launched a brand new hospitality suite for this year’s Randox Health Grand National. The Silver Birch Garden Party, which boasts a premium, informal experience in a superb location will have fantastic views of the start line and home straight, whilst enjoying the very finest dining experience in a stylish and exclusive setting.
John Baker, Regional Director of Jockey Club Racecourses North West who runs Aintree, said: “We’re delighted to launch this new facility for the 2018 Randox Health Grand National and provide another area for our valued customers to be able to get unique views of the fantastic racing on offer over the three days. The Randox Health Grand National Festival is in a great place and this is just another example of how we’re trying to further improve the customer experience and provide more options for our customers.”
Named after the Gordon Elliot trained 2007 Grand National winner, Silver Birch, who won the 160th running of the world’s most famous steeplechase, the unique facility will include a signature cocktail with a selection of delicious appetisers upon arrival, followed by a superb four course choice lunch. The complimentary bar with ice-cold beer and chilled wines, will ensure your glass is never empty, allowing you to fully enjoy the day’s celebrations.
Gordon Elliot, said: “Winning the Grand National in 2007 was one of the best day’s in my racing career, so for Aintree Racecourse to name this superb new facility, Silver Birch is a real honour. I’m looking forward to seeing it in April!”
In addition to the racing and first class dining, there will also be a DJ on hand to keep the atmosphere at fever pitch throughout the evening!
Aintree Racecourse has offered its new hospitality experience in The Silver Birch Garden Party enclosure to the HELP Appeal, on the opening day of the Grand National 2018.
Aintree has also offered the facility on Grand National Thursday to raise funds for The HELP Appeal, the only charity in the country dedicated to funding hospital helipads, who recently covered the entire cost of Aintree University Hospital’s helipad, which the Duke of Cambridge visited in 2017. The charity will fund its upkeep in the future. For more information and to book a table, please go to www.helpappeal.org.uk
Michael Henriques, HELP Appeal trustee said: “We are very grateful to the Jockey Club Racecourse for letting the HELP Appeal have this very special venue for the opening day of the Grand National Festival. Our guests will be the first to soak up the Silver Birch’s garden party atmosphere and benefit from a completely new and unique view of the racing at ground level, whilst enjoying a champagne reception, delicious brunch and traditional afternoon tea, ensuring this will be an unforgettable experience. The proceeds from this event will help to fund many more helipads, including the Royal Liverpool Hospital’s helipad, which is due to open in 2020, meaning there’s even more reason for people to come along.”
