A World Like Nowhere Else

Commissioned by Royal Ascot, ‘A World Like Nowhere Else’ by Peter Bellerby of London globemakers Bellerby & Co (pictured above) is a one-of-a-king artwork.

The Goring Royal Ascot

Peter Bellerby, Bellerby & Co. said;

‘I was thrilled to be asked to work with Ascot creating the ‘World Like Nowhere Else’ globe. I spent the early part of my childhood in Buckinghamshire and I learnt to ride very early, so it was particularly fitting. In eight years of globemaking, this is the first time a client has put their own world on to a globe, which excited me and the team. I hope it will capture the imagination of the British public in the same way that it did for us.’

With 30 hand-painted illustrations telling the tale of Royal Ascot’s long-standing traditions and rich heritage, the globe illustrates the world according to Royal Ascot. Titled ‘A World Like Nowhere Else’, the globe will be displayed in a host of locations, beginning at The Goring in London, before embarking on a journey around the capital and the South of England for members of the public to see. Afterwards, it will take centre-stage at the racecourse for Royal Ascot from Tuesday 20th – Saturday 24th June.

The Village Enclosure

The first new enclosure to open at Royal Ascot for more than 100 years, the Village Enclosure will provide a new perspective on the spectacle of Royal Ascot racecourse, located on the inside of the track looking back towards the final Furlong with Ascot’s iconic Grandstand as a backdrop. A highlight of the summer season and the best of British summertime event, the enclosure will host a ‘pop-up’ summer scene comprising dining experiences, bars, and live music over three stages throughout the day and into the evening.

The Village Enclosure will sit between the Queen Anne Enclosure and Windsor Enclosure in terms of pricing and the Queen Anne Enclosure dress code will apply. Its introduction will allow Ascot to reduce capacity in the existing public enclosures, Queen Anne Enclosure and Windsor Enclosure as part of its continued commitment to customer comfort at the Royal Meeting. The Village Enclosure is open on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Royal Ascot, with an exclusive after party until 9pm.

Julia Slot, the commercial director of Ascot Racecourse said, ‘Placed in a prime position for the thrilling final furlong on the inside of the track, The Village Enclosure celebrates contemporary British summertime.’

Tickets for the Village Enclosure start from £49 if booked before 31st March 2017 and £67 thereafter. To book tickets or for further information visit ascot.co.uk or call 0844 346 3000.
