The prestigious Ladbrokes Festival of Racing is set to return on the 4th and 5th of November 2022 as Down Royal Racecourse hosts an extraordinary weekend of entertainment for avid racegoers, socialites, and fashionistas alike.
The Ladbrokes Grade 1 Champion Chase and the WKD Hurdle are both highlights of the race card over the two day Festival. However, it is no less competitive away from the racetrack with the return of Ladies Day which is set to take place on Saturday 5th of November, when frocks, fascinators, heels and hats will be the order of the day.
This year, the principal sponsor of Ladies Day will be BPerfect Cosmetics, an award-winning and highly reputable local cosmetics brand.
The ‘Best Dressed Lady Competition’ is open to all female racegoers, with the winner taking home an amazing prize package of an unforgettable trip to Paris as well as £500 worth of BPerfect Cosmetics products.
