On Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd June 2017, Ascot came to Bryn Meadows with our biggest attendance at the event of 300 people across the two days.
All guests glammed up for the occasion and were greeted to a Pimms drink reception in the Barn Suite before entering the marquee decorated for the day. Guests enjoyed a 2 course lunch including the summer favourite strawberries and cream before gearing up for the first race of the day.
Pontllanfraith Rotary administered the race stakes, unlike the totes and the bookies you did have to play to win and the horse was selected via a lottery number. All of the races were shown on the big screens dotted around the room; with many people cheering (often very enthusiastically!) their horse over the finishing line.
After the excitement of the races, all were served an afternoon tea buffet guests were able to enjoy the sunshine on the terrace, watching the golfers tee off the tenth.
Serving staff also dished out some prizes for the best dressed and best hat including a Time Out With Elemis spa day for two, afternoon tea and leisure passes.
There has been some fantastic feedback too:
