Fun, frolics and freebies for fashionable filles at Ladies Day at Cheltenham


2017 Cheltenham Festival - Ladies Day - Cheltenham Racecourse

If you enjoy the dressing up, people watching, socialising and day at the races, then Wednesday 14th March at The Cheltenham Festival embraces all of that. Ladies Day at The Festival remains one of the most popular, certainly for the fairer sex.  

The Festival runs from Tuesday 13th to Friday 16th March and is regarded by most, as the greatest Jump Racing Festival of all. As well as showcasing the best National Hunt horses, jockeys and leading trainers in the world, The Festival embodies fashion, sumptuous food and great fun.

Glamour, elegance and stylish dressing goes big on Ladies Day. This year, The Festival are holding a competition known as #ColourMeMarch which is sure to spice up the fashion stakes. The competition which exclusively one for the girls, is all about bringing colour and style to Cheltenham. There are some fabulous prizes to be won, including a brand new MINI ONE CAR from W.O Lewis and Sytner Solihull.

Other prizes to be won on the day include a £2000 necklace from Boodles, an overnight stay at The Lygon Arms in Broadway with dinner, cocktails, breakfast and spa treatment, a stunning Yvette Jelfs hat, made-to-order and worth £700 and more.

For your chance to win more than just money with The Tote, all you need to do is add a splash of colour to your outfit and you can wait to be spotted by one of the racecourse team who will then ask if you’d like to be entered. Or you can enter yourself in the Ladies Day marquee.  Winners will be selected at random to win one of the many prizes and announced on the big screen overlooking the parade ring.

The likelihood is that you will spot at least one celebrity at The Festival and there is always a Ladies Day ambassador. This year it is Miss England 2017, Stephanie Hill.  The 22-year-old is a keen rider and studying for a degree in radiotherapy. She beat off 117 other competitors to come third in the world at the Miss World contest that took place in China earlier in 2017 and will be in the winner’s enclosure to present the prizes on the day.
