SANDOWN PARK, ESHER, UK
It’s become quite a tradition for Caswell to host a box at the races. Everyone who attends tells us how much they enjoyed it. This year was something extra special however; the 50th Anniversary of Caswell being founded…a couple of months before the Apollo 11 moon landing back in 1969. To say there was high demand for an invite is a massive understatement.
The draw of our 50th Anniversary, the cunningly titled ‘XL’ 40th Anniversary tour performance by Madness and promise of horse racing in wall-to-wall sunshine encouraged us to up the numbers for this Sandown Live! 2019 event to 70 to accommodate our guests’ wishes.
Caswell were delighted to be joined by leading designers, national contractors and heads from globally recognised restaurant brands.
Conversation between our valued contacts within the Restaurant & Bar industry flowed as smoothly as the wine and sundry other tipples. The (thankfully air-conditioned) Royal Box and balcony overlooking the finishing post was the perfect place to spend an afternoon with good friends, followed by an evening with Suggs & Co.
Lively as ever, they trumpeted out all the instantly recognisable hits from their back catalogue including Baggy Trousers, House of Fun, Driving in My Car, My Girl, Our House, Embarrassment, Night Boat to Cairo and many more.
Thanks to all our guests, Caswell staff and the Jockey Club hospitality team who helped to make the day so memorable. After this, Tomorrow's just another day (as Madness famously noted).
