The Jockey Club Rooms is the exclusive private members’ club at the HQ of British horseracing in Newmarket, in rural Suffolk. With five fine receptions rooms and 18 country house-style en-suite bedrooms The Club is a private and secluded location, ideal for a country weekend wedding. The elegant interiors and manicured lawns lend themselves to stylish couples with a penchant for a quintessentially English venue.

The Club, which dates back over 250 years, houses a world famous collection of sporting art and racing memorabilia. Charles Howard, General Manager of The Jockey Club Rooms says of the new venture; “we are delighted to be working with Frerejean Frères to launch such a fantastic competition offer for visitors at Brides The Show this October. The lucky winners will be treated like royalty and The Club will become a home-from-home for their special day’”

Frerejean Frères is a family of renowned vintners of Champagne, whose expertise is recognised worldwide. For several generations, the Frerejean Taittinger Brothers grew up with love and respect for the Champagne tradition and a passion for oenology in the heart of the champagne region of Epernay. Champagne Frerejean Frères specialises only in Premier Cru. Most competitors age their Premier Cru for just two years; Frerejean Frères’ philosophy involves a 5 year minimum ageing in cellar; even for the Brut Non-Vintage. The champagne definition of FJF is elegant, mature & refined, with old disgorgement (more than 6 months) and low dosage in sugar.

Andrew Heald, UK Distributor said; “this collaboration offers a couple-to-be a fabulous prize combining two luxury brands. We are pleased to be involved and look forward to congratulating the lucky winners”.
