• 2015 York Races Ebor Festival !

    Posted by Amanda Sowden

    Who's going to the Ebor festival at York races this week?

    I'm lucky enough to live close to the Knavesmire which has hosted this great event since the mid 1800's, so it is a nice leisurely stroll down to the course which is very handy as the traffic can be very busy. Spread over four days every August it includes one of the racing worlds premier races, the "Ebor Handicap" which is run on the last day of the event.

    For me though, the highlight has to be Ladies' Day where a girl can show off her style and panache and top it all off with a huge elaborate hat. It's such a great day out, lots of fun and a great excuse for a get together with friends and family and if you're still undecided, there is a prize of a short break for two in Dubai for the best dressed racegoer. What better excuse to pull out all the stops and visit this most prestigious event.

    If you do fancy going but are still in need of an outfit we've got some stunning items on our site at great low prices so have a look now.

    I'm looking forward to it and hope if you do go, you all have a great time.
