During the festive period Arena Racing Company’s (“ARC”) 14-owned racecourses have hosted Christmas parties for over 30,000 people.

From private family parties through to corporate events for several hundred people, ARC’s racecourse teams have hosted and entertained at events which have each been specifically designed and themed at the request of guests.

Doncaster Racecourse has hosted Christmas parties for over 10,000 people in December. On ARC racecourses traditional Christmas decorations have mixed with more usual decorations, including a Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory party, and a wide range of entertainment including live cabaret shows, fire eaters, stilt walkers, dodgems and rodeo reindeer.

Simon Lane, ARC’s Group Operations Director, said “We have been delighted to be able to provide exciting and unique venues for so many Christmas parties. It’s always a fun period of the year and all our racecourse teams have had a great time getting in a festive mood with our guests. We’re looking forward to helping even more guests to welcome in 2015 with us at the New Year’s Eve parties our racecourses will be hosting next week.”

The ARC Team would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and a successful 2015.
