CHESTER Racecourse has announced that award-winning jewellers Beaverbrooks will be the title sponsor of its Friday Night Social on June 30.

The family-owned jewellers has stores nationwide - including in the city's Eastgate Street - and it renowned for its exceptional quality diamonds, jewellery and watches. Its sponsorship will be coupled with on-site diamond and jewellery cleaning services at the event.

The popular Friday Night Social makes use of the long summer evenings to present a full programme of racing with a unique atmosphere that is different from weekend day events.

Sam Taylor, Store Manager at Beaverbrooks Chester, said: "We are thrilled to be establishing a partnership between Beaverbrooks and the iconic Chester Racecourse by sponsoring the Friday Night Social. "It’s really exciting to be supporting such a big, glamourous event in the North West that sees people flock from across the region and beyond to have an amazing time with friends and family.

"We are a family-owned diamond, jewellery and watch retailer founded in 1919 and have a long history of providing excellent customer service and exceptional diamonds, fine jewellery and watches. We’ve been in our Eastgate Street store for over 36 years, where offering a luxury experience is central to our service, so naturally, sponsoring an exclusive soiree at the races is something we are very excited to be doing!

"Last year, we invested £750,000 in an extensive refit of our store on Eastgate Street to continue providing the people of Chester and beyond with our passion and extensive product knowledge. We welcome customers to enjoy an immersive retail experience, where our teams are on hand to share our expertise when making those special purchases of diamonds, bridal jewellery, and luxury Swiss watches from our range of brands.

"Celebrating special moments with friends and family means the world to all of us at Beaverbrooks. We can’t wait to share this very special evening at Chester Races as the official sponsors of the Friday Night Social with everyone who attends."

Kate Dawson, Commercial Director at Chester Racecourse, added: "We are delighted to welcome Beaverbrooks as the official title sponsor of our Friday Night Social.

"As an award-winning, nationwide jeweller with a store here in Chester, Beaverbrooks join a growing portfolio of businesses that see the value in partnering with us here at Chester Racecourse.

"Like ourselves, Beaverbrooks are committed to providing an excellent experience for all guests and supporting local communities through various charitable initiatives.

"Adding prestige and sparkle to our first Friday evening fixture of the season, this partnership brings together two go-to places that specialise in those magical moments and occasions to cherish.

"The Beaverbrooks Friday Night Social promises a thrilling and stylish evening of racing and entertainment, where new memories can be made and shared amongst family and friends."
