VSL hospitality experience at Ascot
Monday 20 June 2022
Some of the Venue Search London team were lucky enough to be invited to the first day of Royal Ascot, and here we share some of the exciting things about hiring Ascot Racecourse, along with some of the fabulous catering you can expect...
One of our favourite suppliers, Moving Venue, was on site catering for the lovely ladies and gentlemen of the Village Enclosure at Royal Ascot last week, and its thanks to them, the team were lucky enough to be invited down to this prestigious event.
With Moving Venue, food really is the heart of soul of the company. Their seasonal dishes are lovingly produced by a team of talented chefs and they show experience in ensuring all of their menus are deliverable for all events whilst ensuring innovation and creativity, using seasonal and sustainable ingredients.
From historic palaces to museums, blank canvasses and everywhere in between, they use their outstanding operational expertise and foodie finesse to ensure the menu is befitting of your surroundings.
Moving Venue clients have also benefited from a wide range of event services provided by Smart Group, including Christmas party venues, corporate hospitality and a creative event design service, not to mention food from Michelin-starred chef Angela Hartnett, who has been working with Smart since 2010.
Our menu at Ascot offered everything a seated lunch through to afternoon tea and interactive dessert stations, all washed down with plenty of champagne of course. But they don't leave non-drinkers high and dry either. Moving Venue offer an extensive list of non-alcoholic options and cocktails to make every guest feel special and considered.
As if the catering wasn't special enough, Ascot Racecourse is a remarkable venue and an inspirational setting for any occasion, whether you’re planning an event for a few special people or tens of thousands of guests.
With the gorgeous weather here to stay and now that we're all allowed to enjoy it, Ascot has a multitude of options for your corporate summer party, be it an elegant Afternoon Tea with Champagne, a hearty hog roast and a cold beer, or a sundowner barbecue on the manicured lawns, the opportunities are endless.
Heading inside, few spheres of business span the bridge from traditional to the contemporary like exhibitions and product launches, and Ascot has the breathing space for them all. With over 300 diverse function rooms in the most aspirational of settings, Ascot will captivate and energise clients and colleagues alike. With outstanding connectivity, they can also put you into real-time contact with your colleagues around the globe who can’t make it on the day, perfect for hybrid or virtual events.
Not to forget our favourite time of year, Ascot is a unique setting for any Christmas party, and with the freedom to either choose their generous standard package as it stands, add some enhancements or go fully bespoke and design the night entirely your way, you can confidently expect a Christmas party that will linger long in the memory of colleagues, and friends.
