We are pleased to confirm that, following investigation into the large leak in the Macron Stand on Sunday (June 18), there is no structural damage to the stand.
In the wake of the torrential rain that impacted the whole region on the day, the underground drains became overwhelmed which led to our downpipes and gutters to overflow. This led to a significant amount of water leaked into the Stand causing a suspended ceiling to collapse and damage to the internal decorations.
Guests attending the third sitting of our Father’s Day meal in the 1864 Suite were safely escorted out of the building, as a precaution, in case the situation worsened and will be refunded in full.
All the repairs will be carried out and completed long before fans are welcomed back into the Racecourse Ground for the new season.
