Cheltenham Racecourse nurtures delegates - South West venue advocates the benefits of seeing and being in natureCheltenham Racecourse has launched a dedicated DDR promoting its spaces which feature views dominated by greenery.
Following a recent report by Deborah Franklin titled Nature That Nurtures proving the benefits of seeing and being in nature, the south west venue is further advocating the new findings by promoting its event spaces which overlook countryside vistas.
The DDR of £30 + VAT is available to all bookings in the venue’s Panoramic and Hattons Grace suites which overlook the 300 acres of space incorporated within the racecourse. The DDR will include room hire, three servings of tea, coffee and biscuits and a freshly prepared working lunch consisting of Chefs soup of the day with accompaniments and create your own Deli Baguettes.
The recent report forms part of a growing trend of statistics demonstrating that simply looking at environments dominated by nature ameliorates stress, improves mood and sustains interest. Through promoting the venue’s spaces commanding scenic views the new DDR aims to boost conference and event success by channeling these benefits.
Set in the backdrop of Cleeve Hill and located only one mile from Cheltenham town centre the venue boasts an enviable mix of accessibility alongside a picturesque setting. Situated close to the heart of the UK’s transport network, Cheltenham Racecourse is accessible from the midlands’ major arterial routes including the M40 and M5, as well as direct train links to London and Bristol.
Susie Bradshaw, conference and events manager at Cheltenham Racecourse, said: “We are very proud to be able to offer this dedicated DDR promoting the benefits of our impressive setting. The notion that greenery is good for us has been present for centuries however this recent report scientifically proves the notion. What we aim to do at Cheltenham Racecourse is further cement the bond between nature and stress reducing environments enhancing event success.”
