The fascinators were out in force for the “hottest ticket” of the summer racing calendar in Suffolk today.
The Moët & Chandon July Festival at Newmarket Racecourse got underway with Ladies’ Day attracting visitors from far and wide, dressed in their finest outfits.
While the racing kicked off with The Kingdom of Bahrain Trophy, elsewhere visitors were able to enjoy “epic entertainment” as well as competing in the hotly contested Best Dressed Lady Competition.
Sponsored by The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel, the competition offered entrants the chance to win an array of prizes by wearing their finest outfit.
Entertainment included a performance from Simon Webbe, a member of the boy band Blue, who got behind the decks for a DJ set at Après Racing.
