Chester Racecourse will work with renowned chef Aiden Byrne for what they say will be its most ambitious race day dining and entertainment concept to date.

The venue have revealed plans to unveil an 'intimate, stylish, invite-only live sports entertainment experience' that promises to be one of the best at any any sporting venue, in time for the start of the 2019 Boodles May Festival.

Parade with Aiden Byrne, a luxurious trackside venue positioned in the ultimate location for race-goers, will be unveiled on Wednesday, May 8, and run for the duration of the 2019 season.

Parade will host just 60 guests in an intimate setting with a keen focus on design, indulgence, impeccable service and fine dining.

On race days Aiden, who owns a number of exclusive dining establishments in the north west, will create a seasonal six course tasting menu for diners in an open plan kitchen.

It promises to be a 'luxurious haven' on the racecourse, featuring a summer garden roof bar and viewing terrace.

And when the racing draws to a close, the atmosphere will continue into the evening with a resident DJ and cocktail mixologists, transforming the space into the most 'desirable night spot in Chester.'
