Following the Ladies’ Evening fixture in May, the Sussex track now host Ladies’ Day. It’s the first time they’ve held two such events in one year.

Packed full of sophistication and style alongside a seven-race card of National Hunt racing, the day promises to be an event to remember.

Throughout the afternoon Fontwell’s style panel will be on the lookout for their best-dressed lady. The lucky winner will receive a House of Fraser Chichester exclusive gift bag and £500 cash.

Four runners-up will receive a gift bag from House of Fraser in Chichester so racegoers are encouraged to dress to impress for a day out with friends, family or colleagues.

Guests in the marquee will be treated to sumptuous afternoon tea while being entertained by the UK’s number-one Michael Bublé impersonator Jordan Paul Rhys Williams.

Racegoers can look forward to musical entertainment before racing and Duran2 will be live after racing, playing hits including Wild Boys, Rio and Girls on Film late into the evening.

Simon Williams, executive director at Fontwell Park, said: “We’re delighted to be hosting a second ladies’ fixture at Fontwell Park and look forward to welcoming back those who attended earlier in the year as well as those looking for their first opportunity to dress up in 2015.

“We’re really pleased to have our very own Bublé, aka Jordan, back again to entertain the ladies as he proved very popular the first time round. “We would like to thank House of Fraser in Chichester for once again supplying prizes for our best-dressed competition as well as beauty stalls open throughout the afternoon.”

Gates open at midday with the first race at 1.45pm. For tickets, please visit
