Racing and raving for End of Quarter
Our first End of Quarter for 2017-18 was celebrated a little early this year and this time we attended the third of Goodwood Racecourse’s “Three Friday Nights” events; an evening of horse racing and music provided by some of the world’s biggest dance acts. End of Quarter is a tradition at Compass Associates, and our chance to celebrate the achievements on the last quarter and recognise the hard work our employees put into providing a first-class service for our candidates and clients.
We arrived at the racecourse in West Sussex on a beautiful summer afternoon and were welcomed with drinks on our balcony in the Charlton Boxes which provided an excellent view of the racecourse and the stunning vistas of the South Downs.
A hot buffet of delicious curry was served and enjoyed by all before the racing began. There were cheers of joy and sighs of disappointment at the end of each race depending on which way we had bet… some enjoying a profitable evening and others throwing their betting slips in the air!
Once racing had concluded, the Parade Ring was transformed into a “rave arena” for UK chart topping drum and bass act Sigma. Lasers shone into the night sky as the sun set over the South Downs and the crowds enjoyed number 1 singles “Changing” and “Nobody To Love” and were also treated to some brand new music.
A great evening was had by all with a few sore heads the next day…! The next End of Quarter event will be held in October.
