With a selection of luxury hospitality packages, a new Style competition and first-class entertainment, Ladies Day is sure to be one of the biggest fashion extravaganzas the country has seen in a long while.

This year’s event will celebrate the changing styles of Ladies Day past and present, a theme that will be part of the entertainment throughout the day. Showcasing all the top racing action alongside dazzling fashion competitions – style and elegance will be obligatory.

Jennifer Reoch said: “I’m so excited to be hosting this year’s Stobo Castle Ladies Day. It’s been such an important date in people’s calendar’s for so many years, and I know everyone will be so excited to get dressed up and really celebrate being out this summer. I can’t wait for everyone to experience all the exciting things planned for this amazing sell out event.”

Aisling Johnston, Commercial Manager at Musselburgh Racecourse, said: “This year, we are looking forward to welcoming back thousands of spectators to enjoy our stylish Stobo Castle Ladies Day. It’s a great opportunity for people to really go for it and get dressed up after what feels like so long and enjoy a jam-packed day of first class racing, great food and entertainment including our infamous after-party with an exciting celebrity DJ that will be able to announce very soon!

“It’s interesting to think about the evolution of Ladies Day style and, we want this to be a day where we can really celebrate the style and individuality of our racegoers year on year. We are working with some great brands including Harvey Nichols, Sally Ann Provan and Charlie Miller, to spotlight the amazing range of clothes and looks available to buy to ensure people are feeling fabulous on the day.”

The Style Awards will be the new fashion competition for this year and leading Scottish stylist Eva Arrighi will be one of the judging panel. Eva and the other judges- who will be announced in July – will be looking for persons with style, elegance and individuality.

Eva Arrighi Stylist and judge at Stobo Caste Ladies Day said, “Ladies Day is synonymous with getting dressed up, and each year we see a collection of stunning styles and fashions. This year we are looking at the evolution of style at Ladies Day and will welcome the glamour and elegance of the past. Florals are still going to be a hardy perennial at Ladies Day but this year they will be more delicate ditzy affairs. If you’re looking to be bolder – block colours are still a firm favourite on Raceday and the cooler hues of blue and green are having a moment although white, always an elegant option, is a firm favourite this year.”

As well as first class racing and exciting entertainment and music throughout the day, there will also be plenty of fantastic food and drink offerings, as well as an after-race party with a celebrity DJ to keep the party going.

Hospitality packages for Ladies Day are already sold out but there are lots of ticket options still available including the beautifully decorated Picnic Pavilion marquee, located alongside the running rail. With a prime position for viewing the action, the picnic pavilion has its own dedicated bar, betting facilities and private washrooms and are always popular with racegoers.
