There are few occasions in the UK live events calendar that are as iconic as Royal Ascot, which took place recently, and the Spaceworks team was naturally delighted to be one of the key furniture hire suppliers to Ascot Racecourse for this event.
Located in Berkshire, Ascot Racecourse covers 179 acres, leased from the Crown Estate and enjoys close associations with the British Royal Family, being founded in 1711 by Queen Anne and located approximately 6 miles from Windsor Castle.
Supplying furniture for the various areas around this gorgeous venue, there were, in fact, a total of over 20 furniture suppliers, providing different ranges and quantities of furniture, with the equivalent of 33 artic trailers-worth of temporary furniture being installed on site. It took the Spaceworks team a total of 3 days in the run-up to the event to supply and set up the furniture in the various hospitality spaces around the venue.
Products supplied by Spaceworks included 460 Gold Chiavari chairs into the Lawn Club, 360 blue Picasso dining chairs in the Queen Anne enclosure, over 1,000 teak chairs with tables for outdoor areas, rattan sets for lounge terraces (pictured) and around 350 buttermilk cross back chairs with ivory seat pads in the Royal Enclosure. Other items included the new copper Tolix poseur tables with matching stools, Brompton dining chairs, Spectre chairs and almost 250 parasols with bases.
Managing Director of Spaceworks, Les Vipond, said “It’s always a privilege to supply prestigious and iconic events such as Royal Ascot, and our team played an important role by providing a seamless service, contributing to the overall success of the event. We look forward to working with the Ascot Racecourse team for many years to come.”
Another of eventhireGroup’s companies, Event Hire UK, also supplied this event, providing over 1,000 limewash Chiavari chairs for various hospitality areas around this iconic venue.
