Ladies Day countdown has started

It is less than two weeks now until the highlight of the social calendar at Southwell Racecourse, The Advertiser Ladies Day, on Sunday 16 August.

Last year, the fixture broke a record for admissions, with over 8,000 people flooding through the turnstiles, and the organisers are hopeful of a similar turnout once again.

Gates open at 11am with a fashion show taking place before racing courtesy of Vintage2Versace on the main stage behind the grandstand. The first race gets underway at 2pm with the last race currently scheduled for 5.05pm.

Shortly after racing ends, the judging will take place for best dressed lady, best hat and best shoes before the stage is cleared and prepared for Mercury to perform from around 5.45pm for an hour or so.

There will be shuttle buses running from both Southwell and Newark on the day.
