Ladies Day countdown begins

It’s East Yorkshire’s hottest summer day out, but stylish racegoers at Flemingate Ladies Day will have one eye on Christmas this year.

Beverley Racecourse has teamed up with Humberside Airport to award the winner of the coveted Most Stylish Lady competition an unforgettable weekend at the Christmas Markets of Cologne, one of the world’s most magical festive experiences.

The prestigious raceday, presented in partnership with Beverley’s Flemingate centre, returns on August 14 with all the glitz, glamour and celebrity stardust that has makes it the most anticipated event in the region’s social calendar.

A mystery celebrity will also be joining in the fun, although the racecourse team are keeping their name under wraps for now.

Chief Executive Sally Iggulden said: “We’re keeping the celebrity’s name close to our chests, but we know they’re really excited about meeting their many fans at this year’s Flemingate Ladies Day.”

The winning lady in the Flemingate Most Stylish competition will enjoy a weekend for two to the Christmas Markets of Cologne, departing on December 6. The prize will include a private flight experience from Humberside Airport, including complimentary parking and a luxury breakfast, refreshments onboard the flight and two nights’ accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis.

Last year’s best-dressed lady, Liz Hallett, a retired district nurse from Tickton, near Beverley, wore a dress from InWear and accessories from local independent traders, while the most stylish man, 22-year-old Sam Sharp, bought his suit from VERB at Flemingate and was surprised to win after being entered by his friends. He was rewarded with a watch from jeweller Guest and Philips at Flemingate, worth £500. A similar prize is expected to be offered in the men’s category this year.

Flemingate Ladies Day is the best-attended meeting in Beverley’s busy calendar and last year attracted a bumper crowd of 12,000. With a similar number expected this year, racegoers are being encouraged to book early.

Gates for Flemingate Ladies Day will open at 11.30am with the last race at 5.30pm (times to be confirmed). For more information, or to book tickets, visit www.beverley-racecourse.co.uk/event/flemingate-ladies-day or call 01482 867488.
