With Goodwood Revival sadly cancelled this year we look back on some of our favourite pictures from previous years and look forward to Goodwood Speedweek.
After much speculation, we’re pleased to reveal that Goodwood Speedweek presented by Mastercard will take place on 16-18 October 2020. The greatest elements of the Festival and Revival will be combined into one unmissable three-day extravaganza, staged behind closed doors at the Goodwood Motor Circuit. With no spectators, Speedweek will be optimised for broadcast and will be transmitted free of charge globally via the website www.goodwood.com, social channels and a range of broadcast partners.
Nothing like Speedweek has been seen before, as organisers bring more than a century of world class motorsport to life to celebrate the legendary feats of speed, courage and endurance that make it the most compelling sport on earth. On the track, the most valuable cars will do battle in the closest, most competitive historic racing in the world, driven by a glittering line-up of famous faces. Embracing the lack of spectators, a dramatic rally competition will see cars go on, over and even under the circuit, the inaugural ‘Goodwood Gymkhana’ will literally take over the venue, going to places that would normally be strictly out of bounds, and a never-to-be-repeated competition will see some of the fastest cars in motorsport history vying for honours in a winner-takes-all shoot-out over one lap.
Of course it is the track action we are most excited to see and Speedweek will be doing it bigger, better and louder than ever. The favourite races from the Revival and Members’ Meeting will bring you three days of wheel-to-wheel action in everything from Edwardian aero-engined monsters to glorious ‘60s GTs and gnarly ‘70s saloon cars. There will be action off the track as well with the first-ever Goodwood Gymkhana and a Rally Sprint bringing the action screeching sideways onto your screen. The weekend will culminate in a Speedweek-exclusive Timed Shootout round the challenging 2.4-mile Goodwood Motor Circuit.
The Serpentine Summer Party is hosted by Chanel and set in the grassed grounds of the Serpentine art gallery in London’s Kensington Gardens.
With this years event unfortunately unable to go ahead, we look back at some of our favourite pictures from previous years.
This spectacular annual celeb-fest has attracted a line-up of art lovers, hotel magnates and aristocrats. Pop stars, fashion designers and business moguls flock to the event each year, so it is not one to be missed. In the last years, the party welcomed Royal guests including Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and Lady Amelia Windsor. Also in attendance was Suki Waterhouse, Laura Bailey, Alexa Chung and co wore Karl Lagerfeld creations, joined by Yana Peel, Frida Escobedo and Kaya Scodelario.
This major annual fundraiser celebrates the Serpentine Summer Season and the year-round support of the Galleries’ friends, partners and collaborators.
Following the success of last year’s collaboration between the Serpentine Galleries and CHANEL, which saw the pioneering art institution and iconic fashion house combine creative forces, the partnership developed for 2018 creating a unique event celebrating free art and free thinking and honouring the best of art and architecture in the heart of the city.
Leading figures from the worlds of international art, architecture, design, fashion, music, film and business attended the party to celebrate and raise funds for the Serpentine’s globally acclaimed exhibitions, architecture, education and live programmes.
The Serpentine’s legendary summer fundraiser raises essential funds for the Galleries’ programmes, keeping access to the Serpentine free and open to all, all year round.
The Summer Party is organised by the Serpentine Galleries with support from CHANEL.
Tickets are now available for the 2021 party: Tuesday 22nd June 2021, at the Serpentine Gallery, Kensington Gardens, London.

With the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show having been cancelled this year we look back on some of our pictures from previous years.
The show had been moved from July to September in the hope that it could still go ahead but this is now not possible.
Sue Biggs, RHS Director General, says; “We had so hoped that we could hold our much loved RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival this autumn for our members, visitors, exhibitors and sponsors, but sadly in these challenging times this is just not possible.
“We are pleased that our Virtual Chelsea online show did so much in terms of bringing some horticultural joy to the nation, as well as supporting the horticulture industry and we continue to support our nurseries through the Garden Magazine and online during this time.”
Everyone who has purchased a ticket to the affected shows will be contacted by the RHS and offered 2021 show dates, refunds and other options should they wish to show their support of the RHS.
Sue finishes: “We continue to carefully follow Government advice and make responsible decisions with the health and safety of people always at the front of our minds.
“All future planned RHS shows are of course subject to Government advice allowing them to take place, but we hope to welcome you back in 2021 to some spectacular shows, including of course the world’s best flower show, Chelsea 2021”.

STATEMENT ON BEHALF OF ASCOT RACECOURSE ABOUT ROYAL ASCOT 2020……
For public health and safety reasons we have reached the difficult but unavoidable conclusion that Royal Ascot 2020 (Tuesday 16th – Saturday 20th June) will not be able to take place as an event open to the public. This will of course be a great disappointment for everyone planning to attend.
It may prove possible to run the Royal Ascot races behind closed doors, dependent on Government and public health policy and the approval of the BHA for us to re-start racing. This would be for the benefit of the industry, our valued partners and suppliers and our television audiences at home and internationally. Planning for this is now our complete focus and we will update on progress as and when we can.

Customers who have already paid for entry and hospitality at Royal Ascot will be refunded in full in the usual way as quickly as possible and we will start the process of communicating with them, initially by email, immediately. We thank everyone in advance for their patience and understanding in completing this substantial task given the challenging practical circumstances of the current national lockdown.
The pandemic will have a significant financial impact on our business in 2020, along with so many others. Nevertheless, Ascot racecourse will come through this crisis and we look forward to being able to welcome racegoers back when it is safe to do so.
Meanwhile, our thoughts are with all those grieving and suffering as a result of COVID-19. We offer heartfelt thanks to our wonderful NHS staff, key workers and volunteers for all their selfless dedication.
Guy Henderson, Chief Executive, Ascot Racecourse.
