If you are looking for an excuse to dress up this Summer, purchase a new dress or go shoe shopping, please read on! A trip to Southwell Racecourse on Sunday 19th August 2012 for the Newark Advertiser Ladies’ Day is the perfect excuse to get dressed up. Now in its 7th year, Ladies Day is a racing tradition that shouldn't be missed. If you are dressing up for the day, why not go for it and compete in the 'Best Dressed Lady', 'Best Hat' and 'Best Shoes' categories, with winners receiving fantastic prizes. With a fashion show before racing sponsored by John Lewis, and hosted by Sam and Amy from Gem 106, you can also pick up on what’s hot and what’s not for this year’s trends.
With a record crowd expected in 2012, book your tickets now to guarantee entry. First time at the races? Grandstand tickets are for you. Soak up the Ladies' Day atmosphere in close proximity to the parade ring and racecourse, giving you access to all of the action.
To finish the day off in style, we also have the fantastic Battle of the Divas performing live. The Battle of the Divas feature fantastic female vocalists who sing both separately and in various combinations, ending with all performers creating a superb medley of some of pop's most memorable moments which will leave everyone shouting for more.
