Bath Racecourse Shortlisted For 2 RCA Awards

Partners & Sponsors

10 October 2018

Bath Racecourse is delighted to announce that we have been named as a Finalist for the prestigious Showcase & Awards, hosted by the Racecourse Association (RCA).

The Showcase& Awards is the marquee event of British racecourses that annually celebrates first class customer experience in partnership with Moët Hennessy, Racing Breaks, Racing Post and Great British Racing.

Bath Racecourse has been listed as a Finalist in the Event category and the Food & Beverage category. From the five Finalists the winner will be revealed at the Showcase & Awards ceremony on Thursday 8th November at Aintree Racecourse.

The Events Award celebrates superb events that provide memorable days out and attract new customers to racecourses. Entries were asked to demonstrate a defined strategy and excellence in execution, along with a clear link to the racecourse brand and encouragement of return visits.

The Food& Beverage Award identifies excellence and innovation in racecourse food and drink quality and service. Successful Finalists had to reflect both the fare itself and its journey from conception to plate, as well as the level of service underpinning the operation.

Russell Smith, Executive Director at Bath Racecourse, said: “To be nominated for two categories is an incredible achievement and it’s testament to the fantastic year that we have had at Bath Racecourse.  There have been a number of challenges outside of our control but as a team we have pulled through it all together.  I am extremely proud of all of our efforts this year."

Caroline Davies, RCA Racecourse Services Director, said, “I am thrilled for Bath Racecourse for their success in being named a Finalist in two categories at the 2018 Showcase & Awards.

“It is one of the most exciting times of year to see the Showcase submissions go before the judges to demonstrate the care and attention given to enhancing the raceday experience

“I extend my congratulations to the team for their hard work in securing this achievement as one of our Finalists wish them the best of luck ahead of the Awards ceremony at Aintree Racecourse on Thursday 8th November.”
