Following Government advice, all racing at Worcester Racecourse will continue behind closed doors until further notice. From 24/09/20 all attendees to Worcester Racecourse will be requested to fulfil the NHS Track & Trace system upon entry.
At Worcester Racecourse, our dedicated team know how difficult a time arranging a loved ones funeral can be, so we do all we can to ensure a peaceful and serene experience for you and your family. Our venue has adapted since Covid, and not only do we have safety measures in place, but we have big enough suites to accommodate the maximum of 30 guests for a funeral and maintain social distancing. (You can find all the latest funeral guidance from the Government here.)
The view of the city centre with the backdrop of the Cathedral, views of the River Severn and plenty of green space surrounding the racecourse makes the venue picturesque and relaxing despite being so central in the city. A venue that balances the want for reflection, the space needed for your guests, and the help in hosting this occasion.
With a number of suites available, you can be sure of a private setting for your gathering, and can choose to take advantage of the beautiful views across the racecourse if you wish. We hope to take the stress out of catering for the wake, with our expert chef and his team able to provide a menu to suit your tastes or honour your loved one.
