The Australian Turf Club Heritage Exhibition

“Being given an opportunity to exhibit a sample of the ATC Heritage Collection at a local library we asked Event Planet to design a museum style background to best display the artwork and objects.  What they came up with completely transformed the space, and definitely met the brief. They were very efficient and a delight to work with.” Margaret Hellback, Heritage Officer, Australian Turf Club

Event Brief

To design and construct an exhibition of The Australian Turf Club’s heritage items including paintings, artefacts and video recordings. To create a setting that was sympathetic to an historical display that was engaging and inviting for visitors.

Event Planet created a bespoke gallery environment within the Bowen Library at Maroubra. The exhibition consisted of four surrounding walls which featured a combination of both televisions and recessed shelving. The televisions displayed rolling historic film and photographic footage in front of a backdrop of Royal Randwick Racecourse from the mid 1940’s.

Visitors to the exhibition were also treated to an inaugural viewing of artwork and artefacts that reflect Australia’s racing history at a special launch event. The exhibition gave guests the unique opportunity to experience defining moments of the ‘sport of kings’ in Australia.
