Civil Licence

& Weddings

We now have 2 licences for wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships. You can now have your special ceremony within the Grandstand or the Owners and Trainers Lounge.

From our first meeting with Tracey to the big day everything was really well organised. Leicester Racecourse was the perfect venue for us. Friendly, helpful staff and nothing was too much trouble. The venue had space for all our guests both at the reception as well as the ceremony with good food and service. We had such a wonderful day we want to get divorced and do it all over again! David Himan and Adrian O’Callaghan
