Horse Racing and Claret Lunch, Friday 6th March 2019


And… they’re off! This lunch, which takes place a week before Cheltenham, is an opportunity to enjoy some delicious Claret with fellow followers of the turf. We will be joined by the charismatic Rolf Johnson, our gust speaker, the former racing correspondent for the Daily Express and an advisor to Harry Herbert and Al Shaqab, the Qatar Foundation’s equestrian centre. Far from serious, this will be a light-hearted chance to discuss Cheltenham, sharing tips and knowledge with fellow enthusiasts in the comfortable surroundings of our Sussex Cellar. Hosted by Mark Scholfield, Head of Events and Education, with guest speaker Rolf Johnson
