Towcester Racecourse’s External Venue Space

Looking for a venue with plenty of external space? Look No Further…

Over 140 acres including three lawns, two lakes and one perfect venue for all your extraordinary event requirements. Towcester Racecourse is a unique, independent and visually stunning venue/event space located in the rolling Northamptonshire countryside and we aim to preserve our racing legacy whilst striving to be forward thinking and open minded to all opportunities.

Our centre course alone is a large 100 acre plot of undulating land with two spring fed natural lakes which play home to the national hovercraft championships, the Gung Ho! 5km inflatable obstacle run and vintage & supercar photoshoots. Accompanying our centre course are our selection of lawns which can be utilised for a multitude of events from hosting Jo Whiley and Melanie C DJ sets, to alfresco dining and national music tours. Our lawns are put to full use for the Towcester Summer Food Festival where our grounds support local suppliers in showcasing their products and the vast variety of local produce that deserves to be celebrated by the community.

In addition to being a racing attraction, Towcester Racecourse is a venue for hospitality, weddings, exhibitions, conferences, team building, festivals, national music tours, a filming location all whilst being rich in open land and grade 1 listed park lands. We are fortunate to be able to host such multi-faceted functions 365 days of the year.

With the testimonials below it is clear to see the vastness of land and the endless possibilities this provides in supporting local, regional and national customers searching for individual spaces in which to host their events, all whilst continuing to familiarise the industry with Towcester Racecourse as a venue and unprecedented outdoor event space.

Towcester Racecourse is aiming to continue it’s progression into the meetings and events industry. Whilst having been a venue with a proud reputation for having hosted events for some of the country’s most prestigious corporations the racing has always been the known entity to those outside of the Racecourse.
Despite this, the Racecourse as a venue and product, we believe, exceeds the industry expectations of a Racecourse. Across the last 12 months we have branched out into new horizons welcoming new businesses and their bespoke events to Towcester and from these events the response has been positive with the initial reaction of “who’s Towcester Racecourse” slowly being left behind.
The clarity of progression into the industry is only strengthened by the testimonials detailed below.

‘What a fantastic day and a great venue. I was really impressed with the facilities at Towcester and will look forward to keeping an eye on their future planned developments. A venue that I will definitely be recommending to clients for any future events’.
Wendy Green | Director, Days by Design


‘I’d like to thank Charlotte, Kieran and their team for providing excellent service throughout our business event. Everything ran like clockwork and the buffet lunch was delicious! We would definitely consider Towcester Racecourse again in the future’.

Nick Hickford | Pickering Interfaces


‘Young Driver has worked with Towcester Racecourse using their surplus car park space to deliver lessons to 10-17 year olds. This important initiative is reducing road accident among the young people of Towcester, with evidence showing that those who have attended Young Driver lessons at Towcester have 50% less accidents than the national population.
We have all times found the staff at Towcester Racecourse to be helpful, proactive, enthusiast and dedicated to working with the Towcester community’.
Jade Ogle | Young Drivers
