Summer sunshine and blue skies, Pimms, champagne and strawberries, panamas, linen suits and ties, floaty chiffon dresses and gorgeous statement hats – yes, it’s nearly time for that festival of fun, speed and horses that is Glorious Goodwood.
From Tuesday 29th July to Saturday 2nd August, why not make your way down to West Sussex and the beautiful Goodwood Racecourse on the Goodwood Estate? The most glamorous day is undoubtedly Ladies Day on the Thursday 31st July where highlights include the historic Artemis Goodwood Cup as well as the celebrity ladies’ race for the Magnolia Cup, supported by Audi.
More than 100,000 people flock through the gates during this showpiece five-day Festival which is often thought to be the “sporting and social highlight of the summer”. Tickets for the Gordon Enclosure start at GBP35 if booked in advance with the Lennox Enclosure being GBP14. The Richmond Enclosure is members only.
Looking forward to seeing you there – here’s a YouTube video from last year. Now where’s that hatbox ….
