Gary England, previously head of corporate sales at the Barbican, has left the central London venue to join the Sodexho Prestige team at Ascot. England, who worked at the Barbican for more than seven years, became sales and marketing director at the racecourse in October. “The venue has spent £185m on its redevelopment to create a state-of-the-art grandstand. This is a premier racecourse in Europe and provides a wealth of opportunity. Having been at the Barbican for nearly eight years, this provides the challenge I’ve been looking for,” said England. Royal Ascot will return to its inaugural home next year following its relocation to York while the redevelopment took place.
