The vibrant atmosphere, roaring laughter and thundering hooves of top quality racing are what make the Investec Derby Festival an unmistakably British event and The Greatest Summer Celebration.
Rain or shine, every year on the first Friday of June, a multitude of ladies and gents head to Epsom Downs Racecourse to experience a day full of high octane racing, music, glamour and fashion. Across the Queen’s Stand to The Hill there is an air of excitement all round.
Dressed to impress, Ladies in the Queen’s Stand and Duchess’s Stand are invited to enter the Style Awards with the promise of not only taking the title but going home with some superb prizes, including a luxury holiday to Mexico. With a series of seven races throughout the day and post racing DJ set from Mark Wright on the Hyperion Lawn it’s a day to mark the start of your summer.
One of the greatest race days and social occasions of the British summer calendar, Saturday 3rd June is a day not to be missed.
From the carnival atmosphere and picnics on the Hill, to top hat and tails in the Queen’s Stand and upbeat musical entertainment, topped off by a post DJ set from BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley, on the Hyperion Lawn in the Duchess’s Stand, it is a day that delivers a truly quintessentially British experience. It’s a vibrant day full of fun, cheers and celebrations.
Amongst the seven races, features The Greatest Flat Race in the World. The race that only the best three year olds can compete in. The race they get just one shot at. The one all Jockey’s want to win. The Investec Derby Stakes.
