Horseracing gifts from Palace House

Darren 'Birdie' Bird

Darren ( Birdie) Bird was born and bred in Suffolk and as a boy loved to draw and paint so it was no surprise that on leaving school he enrolled and completed a graphic design course and has never looked back…… over the last 25 years building a successful business creating, designing and illustrating for a wide variety of projects and clients.

To mark this the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Arts have collaborated with him to develop a number of unique products. Last year Birdie was commissioned to illustrate the board and map of Newmarket for our bespoke Monopoly game which launched in celebration of 350 years of racing in the Town and has since become our number one selling product.

Now those unique illustrations have been used to decorate a number of exclusive Birdie products including a Tea Towel, Apron and Tote Bag with more ideas for the range currently in development.
