The Tack Room

Marlborough Events operates The Tack Room Bar at major venues. This is a popular facility at equestrian events such as Bicton Arena and Barbury Castle.

The Tack Room provides a comfortable and welcoming environment for refreshment, relaxation, simply filling in some spare time, or winding down at the end of the day.

“I have used Jeremy, Steve and the team at Marlborough Events for two 21st birthday parties and honestly couldn’t have done it without them. They are highly efficient, totally reliable, extremely good at coming up with ideas for the party, and able to provide all sorts of additions that really made the venues look fantastic – and one was a Festival vibe in a wood so not easy!”

In recent years Jeremy has moved full time into events organisation and management, using his extensive experience and contacts in the hospitality and music industries. His hog roasts and giant paellas are famous, and he caters for many trainers’ hospitality and open days. Marlborough Events represents another step forward, partnering with leading jockeys Steve Drowne and Martin Dwyer.
