Blackpool-based catering and event management company, Campbell and Rowley is under starter’s orders for a busy summer after winning a new contract.

Directors Lindsay Campbell and Paul Rowley said they were proud to announce their latest partnership – with Hexham Racecourse.

They will be the exclusive caterer for the course in High Yarridge, Northumberland.

They said the seven-year business partnership will see the company with a reputation for sporting venue catering and hospitality, as well as corporate event and wedding catering leading the field.

With Cartmel Racecourse in Cumbria and Fylde Rugby Football Club already in their portfolio along with the facilities at Bloomfield Road, they have a growing track record in sports events.

Lindsay said: “We are proud to have been selected as the exclusive caterer to the racecourse, it is a very exciting challenge and we look forward to looking after race-goers and getting to know all of the clients and guests that frequent Hexham Racecourse.

“With a seven-year partnership there is enormous potential and both businesses are invested in implementing some exciting ideas, maybe a few surprises too.”

He said Hexham Racecourse, with a 128-year history, is one of the most scenic in the country.

It offers a venue for weddings, celebrations, parties, corporate days and conferences in the natural beauty of the Northumberland countryside.

Racecourse manager, Robert Whitelock said: “We are looking forward to working with Lindsay, Paul and team.

“Campbell and Rowley have embraced the best of business and culture in the locality of other venues they manage which aligned to our approach here at Hexham.

“We are excited to see what the future brings but with the ideas on the table we really look forward to welcoming more events, weddings and taking the experience for our race-goers to another level in 2018 and beyond.”

The company also works with Holker Hall and Gardens in Cumbria, Blackpool Football Club and Lytham Hall.
