Jumping for joy at Perth Racecourse
It has been a great start to the year here at Heritage Portfolio. We are delighted to announce that we won the contract to operate the catering and hospitality at Perth Racecourse. Visiting the races is becoming increasingly more popular in Scotland and when you experience a race-day at Perth you can see why!
The racing season starts in April and we have been working hard on some new concepts to enhance the dining offering across the site to ensure no two visits to be the same. We promise to post images of the new catering once the season starts but for now, if you are planning on visiting some of the early races in the season just know that you are in for a treat! Alongside the hospitality offering and trackside bars will be a gastro restaurant, a speciality lighter bite restaurant, Champagne Bar and café serving fresh, seasonal and delicious food to fuel a fantastic day at the races.
Perth Racecourse is known not only for its race days but also for its conference and events business. We will be working with the team onsite to drive that business and bring awareness to the fantastic events that can be held at the venue. With the addition of The Lodge at Perth Racecourse hotel, it has never been easier to hold conferences, weddings or away-days where you can utilise all of the spaces across the venue.
As the caterer and hospitality operator at Musselburgh Racecourse, we know a thing or two about race-days and events and our team has a real passion for it. Operating both Racecourses is a perfect fit for us and allows us to push ourselves even more creatively. Our new Perth Racecourse client, Hazel Peplinski says it best….
“Heritage Portfolio has demonstrated a natural focus to align with our brand and adopt our culture, while their partnerships with other local and Scottish producers sits perfectly with our own ethos. The aim of the partnership is clear – Heritage Portfolio will provide an enhanced customer experience to match enhanced expectations, creating an exponential lift in quality and service throughout the racecourse.
It is essential that racegoers are given an affordable, quality choice throughout our enclosures and that the service standard is prompt and courteous. The bespoke qualities of Heritage Portfolio – their scale, nimbleness and passion to create the right fit – means they understand the raison d’etre of each of their venues. In recent weeks Heritage Portfolio has already got under the skin of what makes Perth Racecourse tick and provided a welcome boost of energy, virtuosity and aptitude to our operation.
Advance sales are well ahead for this time of year and we also have a crazy busy book of conference and events this spring. Heritage Portfolio is landing at Perth at the full gallop, their mobilisation process is well underway and the early signs suggest this new partnership will make for a very exciting year. Perth Racecourse has tremendous potential and I believe in Heritage Portfolio we have found a partner that can help us to achieve our goals – it’s all to play for.”
