Hamilton Park Racecourse refurb off to a racing start

One of Lanarkshire’s most unique meetings and events venues, Hamilton Park Racecourse has unveiled plans to invest more than £800,000 in the property. 

The extensive re-modelling and re-branding project, which will begin immediately, will see the whole of the grandstand first floor transformed with full renovations taking place across the Duke’s Bar and Restaurant, Panorama Bar and the Conservatory Café.

The development is part of a larger strategy to establish the racecourse as one of Scotland’s leading sporting and entertainment venues. To help achieve this aim, Hamilton Park Racecourse is reaching out to the wider Lanarkshire community who are being urged to share ideas for the rebrand. Suggestions should encapsulate the history of the racecourse and local area, and can be submitted on the venue’s social media channels.

While the facilities off the track undergo a makeover, Hamilton Park Racecourse has also confirmed that the race day prize pot has reached a new total of almost £1.2 million.

Vivien Currie, Chief Executive at Hamilton Park Racecourse, said: “This is a very exciting time at Hamilton Park Racecourse. We are already a truly unique asset for Scotland and a valuable part of the Lanarkshire community however this investment ensures our facilities not only lead the way, but are unrivalled in Scottish sport and are in line with the high-end experience we wish to deliver to the general and race-going public.

“This is a significant project which will change the face of the dining and socialising experience in the historic grandstand. Great planning and consideration has been put into the fixtures, fittings and furniture with the existing spaces being completely ripped out and extensively refurbished.”
