Royal Ascot ticket and hospitality sales up in 2011
Hospitality bookings and ticket sales rose at Royal Ascot in 2011 despite some poor weather.
Hospitality bookings rose by 12% and there was a 3.5% rise in ticket sales, Royal Ascot spokesman Nick Smith said.
The bad weather led to dress restrictions being relaxed on Saturday, allowing people to wear wellies.
He said: "We had to open up the Heath Village in the centre of the course for the first time for a couple of years due to demand."
More than 50 people were arrested during the five days of Royal Ascot - up from 10 arrests last year.
There were 80 arrests in 2009.
