Spaces and Suites

“We ran our debut Fair in the Centaur at Cheltenham Racecourse. It was a huge success with 45 leading art galleries and 4,300 visitors over three days. All our exhibitors were impressed and delighted with the venue and our visitors were simply saying “wow” as they walked into the show.

The venue was outstanding for us with every facility we could need, a great location and unlimited parking. The racecourse team was absolutely amazing – for operations, technicians, catering and stewards nothing was too much trouble and they often took the initiative.

Our sales contact didn’t dump us once we’d signed the contract, he stayed with us all the way. We couldn’t fault it and we’re here again in 2018.”

Anthony Wardle, Director of Fresh Art Fairs Ltd
