The Journal Ladies’ Day

The Journal Ladies’ Day

First Race Time: 2:10pm

Don't miss The Journal Ladies' Day at Beverley Racecourse! This year’s event promises to be better than ever with a new theme for 2013 of a Summer Garden Party.

Featuring new zoned areas, including the laid back Lavender Lawn which will be complemented by the fabulous East Yorkshire Local Food Network's mobile van cooking delicious local seafood for racegoers to try. We will also have an English Country Garden area, complete with fountains, statues and topiary. It’s going to be our smartest Journal Ladies' Day yet!


Tickets will be available to purchase on the day for the Grandstand & Paddock and Course Enclosures, at £15 and £6 respectively.


Gates will be open at 11am for The Pavilion guests and 11.30am to all other ticket holders. The last race is provisionally at 5.20pm. A full itinerary for the Pavilion guests is now available  - just click here to read more.

The timings of the Fashion Shows will be 2.25, 2.55, 3.25, 4.10 & 4.30 in the central marquee. The presentations of the Best Dressed competitions will also be held in here at 4pm.


As usual we will be running the Best Dressed Competitions throughout the afternoon for Best Dressed Lady, Best Dressed Gentleman and Best Headwear. You can find out more about the gorgeous prizes on offer here.

Traffic Arrangements

Because we expect Ladies' Day to be popular, a traffic system will be in place for departing traffic after 4.30pm.

York Road (the main road outside the racecourse) will become one way only, and all departing traffic must turn towards the Dog Kennel Lane roundabout, away from Beverley. The road links are fantastic around here, so getting back to Beverley after racing can be done by either bypass at the roundabout. There’ll be lots of signs and hopefully this should help ease congestion. We ask all racegoers to use the designated exits from the car-parks, especially on the Westwood. Exiting over the rear of the Westwood is actually unlawful, and the Police can fine you as a byelaw is in place to forbid this!
