The annual event brings together a host of clients, sponsors, supporters and leaders from the equestrian world for a four course lunch, entertainment and business update on the activities of Chester Racecourse and its subsidiaries. Guests present included O2, Boodles, MBNA, Toyota, LDF, Matalan and Worldpay.
During the event, Angus Wilson, Head of Catering at Horseradish presented an update on Horseradish to the assembled guests, discussing the history and business case behind the launch of Horseradish as well as its recent successes and plans for growth.
Key highlights from the presentation included:
• The decision to become an event services provider rather than just a caterer
• Recent business wins with Chester Cathedral and Tatton Park
• Potential new business opportunities with regional and national venues
• Major event successes such as Chester Rocks and Chester Winter Wonderland
Angus Wilson, Head of Catering at Horseradish said: “Whilst Horseradish is rapidly emerging as a brand in its own right, we remain a vital part of the Chester Racecourse family. This lunch was the ideal opportunity to showcase our event management talents, catering knowledge and creativity as well as our successes and aspirations.”
The event provided a showcase for Horseradish’s event management capability including all areas of logistics and planning. The four course meal also demonstrated Horseradish’s focus on local and seasonal food whilst allowing the service team to demonstrate their new uniforms. It was concluded with a Question of Sport themed quiz hosted by and featuring a range of local and sporting celebrities such as John Parrott, John Barnes and ITV presenter, Lucy Meacock.
