Chester Racecourse today announced Mappin & Webb as the title sponsor of their Ladies Evening fixture on Friday 24 June, expanding the jeweller’s presence in the city after opening the new store on Eastgate Street, Chester last month.
The Mappin & Webb Ladies Evening, which takes place on Friday 24th June, is a fixture whose tradition has endured throughout the years and become a hallmark in the social calendars of ladies (and gentlemen) up and down the country.
Mappin & Webb has a long-standing relationship with the city of Chester, having traded in the City for many years and recently moved into a larger showroom on Eastgate Street which includes a luxurious hospitality area and bar.
Mappin & Webb hold strong ties with the racing industry already, producing trophies for Royal Ascot in The Gold Cup, the Queen’s Vase and Royal Hunt Cup.
The partnership between the jeweller and Chester Racecourse is the perfect fit, with heritage and customer experience at the core of both businesses. Mappin & Webb has over 240 years of tradition in the world of fine jewellery and that will be on display at Chester, the world’s oldest operating racecourse, on Friday 24 June.
Louise Stewart, Chief Executive at Chester Racecourse, said: “We are very grateful to Mappin and Webb, a jeweller with over 240 years of tradition in the world of fine jewellery, for supporting Chester Racecourse through this new sponsorship.”
“Ladies Evening is a highlight in the racing calendar, and we are looking forward to seeing the partnership with Mappin and Webb come to life in front of thousands of racegoers.”
Craig Bolton, President UK and Europe at Watches of Switzerland Group, said: “Mappin & Webb is delighted to be the title sponsor for this esteemed event. Mappin & Webb is a British treasure with over 240 years of tradition in the world of luxury watches & jewellery. Chester Racecourse with its own incredible heritage and iconic status is the perfect venue for us to partner with. Having recently opened a larger showroom in Chester on Eastgate Street, our experienced team will be delighted to welcome race goers and locals into the new showroom”
