Competitive Fun, Engagement & Team Bonding
We bring all the excitement of a “Day at the Races” to your event!
The Events Company specialise in providing corporate and charity race nights at venues throughout the UK for both small and large scale events.
This exciting activity is staffed by a professional compere and experienced tote staff. We use a large screen video projection system and high quality PA with horse racing video footage from various courses across the country including both jump and flat races.
Our Corporate Race night
Our corporate race nights focus on fun and entertainment. Guests can bet individually or as teams, usually denoted by the table they are sitting at, and are given fun money as the event opens. The person or team with the most fun money at the end of the event wins the prize!
How our corporate race night works
At the start of the activity our compere and tote staff will introduce themselves and the explain how the race night works before handing out fun money and branded race cards.
The race cards contain instructions but the compere will also explain the format to the guests. Once the introduction is over and the form guide perused, the odds are announced and the guests place their bets at the tote booth.
When the race finishes, the winners will go to the tote booth and collect their winnings. A typical Corporate Race Night has four to six races and lasts for around 2 hours.
At the end of the event the individual or team with the most fun money is the winner and prizes are awarded! Race Nights are just one of the many types of Fun Evening Entertainment that we can offer.
“I just wanted to officially thank you for your part in the success of the corporate race night held last week. Everybody enjoyed it and you and your teams’ organisation and professionalism were very much appreciated. Should we need anything else in the future I will not hesitate to give you a call.” – Rapid News.
“Just a short note to thank you both for a thoroughly enjoyable evening last night. In spite of losing every penny on the horses, the actual event was great fun – and we’ll never hear the end of it from Tanya after winning the weekend away!” – MIRA Ltd.
“What a fantastic evening, made even better by the fact that my table won!!! Joking apart we have already had some very positive comments from a few of the delegates, the racing was enjoyed by all and from my point of view you left me nothing at all to worry about which was just superb. I really can’t thank you and your team enough.” – Companion Care.
“Just wanted to say what a fabulous night Saturday was. The race night was excellent and enjoyed by everyone, I think we will definitely do that again. And as usual you were a star and all the crew you bought with you.” – Sandwell & Birmingham Hospital.
