This summer, for one week only, the longest running drama returns.
Royal Ascot (Tuesday 16th – Saturday 20th June) presents a spellbinding modern classic, featuring an all star cast, stunning costumes and unparalleled action. Witness the majesty of the Royal Procession, the vibrant fashion and, of course, the thunder of hooves as the world’s finest horses compete for glory over five thrilling days in June. Be Part of the Drama.
The Royal Ascot Fine Dining portfolio for 2020 incorporates an astonishing ten Michelin stars, more than ever before and a number unprecedented at any other British sporting event.
Queen Anne Enclosure
The Grandstand Lawn has been reimagined in order to enhance the customer experience. Bars formally positioned in the middle of the lawn have been relocated to the sides, freeing up the space to accommodate a series of elegant pergola seating. Always a popular social destination with Queen Anne Enclosure guests, the lawn is made for unwinding with friends over a bottle of Champagne while enjoying the thrill of each race as the action unfolds on a nearby big screen.
The Lady Aurelia Bar will become an alcohol-free space for Royal Ascot 2020, making it a perfect spot for those wishing to savour the racing away from the social whirlwind of the Queen Anne Enclosure, its terrace offering an excellent view over the crucial final stages of each race.
Guests looking for a dedicated quiet space are invited to enjoy the Sunflower Lawn. Located on the Grundy & Bustino Lawn, this alcohol-free zone forms part of our ongoing accessibility commitment to providing additional facilities for guests suffering from invisible disabilities. The lawn complements Ascot’s Sunflower Lanyard Scheme, whereby racegoers whose needs are not immediately obvious may wear a green lanyard that discreetly indicates that they, or someone they care for, has a hidden disability. Sunflower lanyards will be available from all racecard kiosks and ticket offices on the day, while specially-trained staff empowered to provide assistance to those who may require it will be identifiable by a sunflower pin badge on their uniform.
The lively Village Green will see numerous new enhancements in 2020, including an impressive full service bar on the trackside rails, an unmissable chill out area and a stunning Royal Ascot selfie feature, all adding to the Village Enclosure’s uniquely eclectic vibe.
Live music is always an important aspect of the Village Enclosure experience; racegoers can look forward to an eclectic soundtrack throughout the day, from roaming a capella to a variety of live sessions on the canopy stage. Renowned party bands will perform upbeat chart hits before each evening’s headline act takes to the main stage, with this year’s line up including Ashley James, a Circa Waves DJ set and Chris Stark, with the celebrations continuing until 9pm. We will be announcing the Village Enclosure’s new feature DJ in due course.
An exciting new addition to the Windsor Enclosure’s collection of casual dining options this year is Kricket by Will Bowlby, an unmissable Indian tapas and cocktail offering from one of London’s hottest restaurant collections. Hosting seated dining at the heart of this unique and sociable enclosure each day, the restaurant has a myriad of bars and entertainment - not to mention a privileged view of the racing from the trackside rail - just a short stroll away.
The Winkfield Garden has been redesigned for 2020. With abundant seating, live music and elegant, tented bars at which to celebrate with friends, it makes a great base for a day of socialising and relaxed picnicking. Positioned at the far end of the Windsor Enclosure, its lawns provide a welcome opportunity to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the trackside lawns.
