Join us at one of our classiest sports events to date, the Royal Ascot Meeting on June 18 2022 at the Hilton Castle Budapest!
We are thoroughly delighted to announce that our long-running event series continues, but also takes a new direction with British horse racing’s crown jewel event the Royal meeting at Ascot. Our programme at the gorgeous Hilton Castle starts at 2:30 pm on June 18, with the final day’s first race and lasts through the day’s races until 6:30 pm.
At the event we will feature a number of exclusive programmes, including a gorgeous hat fashion show, courtesy of Hajnalka Tórizs Head Couture, a charity betting competition for unique prizes including multiple hotel stays at properties such as Prónay Kastély and our hosts Hilton, medical management packages courtesy of Dr. Rose and many others, with all proceeds going to charity. Asides all that we will also have a photo opportunity with traditionally-clad hussars at the entrance and ample amounts of the quintessential British Summer favourite Pimm’s.
To get you in the Royal Ascot spirit, we urge everyone to dress like you would to the actual Ascot and reward the best headpiece. There is no horse racing without betting either, so we are also organising a small competition with all proceeds going to charity and the most successful players being rewarded with a variety of desirable prizes. If you wish to participate in the charity betting, please bring some cash with you to the event.
Canapés and drinks will be served at the event, courtesy of our hosts Hilton Budapest.

The Royal Ascot is a multi-event meeting, synonymous with the Ascot Racecourse and the oldest of its kind in Britain, with its roots tracing back to 1768. Some of the cups presented have been ran continously since the early 19th century, predating the likes of Wimbledon or the FA Cup by well over half a century. We will join in for the last day of the 5-day meeting on Saturday, as the day’s programme will feature five races including the esteemed Platinum Jubilee Stakes and the over 200 years old Wokingham Stakes. Waiting at the door for everyone will be a pair of hussars, for a nice photo opportunity and to underline the mix of Hungarian and British the BCCH has always been known for.
