The perfect pièce de resistance
Named fittingly after the Earl of Lonsdale, who was a frequent racegoer in the 1800s and was known for his love of partying, The Earl's Lawn is a hub of raceday entertainment, featuring live music and Instagram worthy moments for that all-important reunion with family and friends.
Set in the heart of the Gordon Enclosure, The Earl’s Lawn is the best place to relax and soak up the atmosphere of Glorious Goodwood with our popular saxophonist and live DJ bringing good energy, good music and a guaranteed good time.
The Earl’s Lawn hosts a selection of street food favourites where worldly flavours meet British classics. Provided by national street food culinary experts, KERB, each street food option has been hand-selected to be easily enjoyed whilst sitting out in the sunshine, listening to the DJ play.
For all the gin lovers
Introducing our newest addition to the Gordon Enclosure; the Nicholson Gin Pavilion. Head to this stylish bar to discover Nicholson Gin’s exquisite new-look profile of modern and refreshing blends.
Adjacent to the parade ring and the Earl’s Lawn, Nicholson Pavilion is right at the heart of the off-track entertainment. There’s no better setting to socialise with friends than the Qatar Goodwood Festival.
