Ladies' Day 2012 at Beverley Racecourse

The gates will open at 11.30 am and the first race is 2.10 pm. A large crowd is expected so it is advisable to get here as early as possible.


As all our racegoers know by now, it pays to put a little bit of thought into your outfit for Journal Ladies’ Race Day, as there are some fabulous prizes being offered for the best dressed racegoers on the day.

The top accolade has to be the Best Dressed Lady and this year, Unique – with hair salons in both Hessle and Cottingham – is supplying £200 worth of hair products and a year’s worth of hairdressing (to the value of £1,000) to the winner. Its involvement in Journal Ladies’ Race Day comes at an exciting time for the business, as work is under way on the company’s brand new Beverley salon.

In addition to the prize from Unique, the Best Dressed Lady will also be able to enjoy a day at the races with friends. Beverley Racecourse is supplying a private hospitality box for ten people, including a buffet, for the May Bank Holiday meeting of 2013.

It’s not just the ladies who like to impress at Journal Ladies’ Race Day. Every year, hundreds of dapper men turn out for the event, dressed in smart suits with snappy accessories – which is why there will also be a prize for the Best Dressed Gentleman. Ian Blowers Jewellers, based in Savile Street, Hull, will be offering the winner a stunning dress suite presentation set of silver cufflinks with matching dress studs. Set with mother of pearl inlay and onyx with a diamond centre, this prize retails at about £600. The Best Dressed Gentleman will also receive four premier passes to the August Bank Holiday meeting at Beverley Racecourse.

The Journal Ladies’ Day is just as much about the headwear as it is about anything else and, this year, there’s some impressive prizes for the person with the best hat. The winner will receive a bespoke hat designed to their exclusive design by award-winning milliner Suzanne Gill, as well as a £1,000 voucher redeemable against a creation from Zeman Couture. Last year, Suzanne beat 300 designers to win Best Hat at Cheltenham. Soon after, she was commissioned by the racecourse organisers to contribute to its dress guide, distributed at this year’s Cheltenham Festival. Rijk Zeman is an haute couture fashion designer who can create the garment of your choice for any occasion, and members of the Dutch royal family are among his clients.

In addition to the above prizes, each winner will also receive a bouquet from the Floral Lounge and a bottle of Champagne, courtesy of CGC Events.
