Where else could you combine fashion, racing and Meat Loaf (the person, not the food) but at The Racecourse Newbury, where they will be celebrating Ladies’ Day with a “Party in the Paddock” after the last, featuring a performance by the Bat Out of Hell singer.

If Meat Loaf’s rockin’ tones aren’t exciting enough, there will also be a Best Dressed Lady competition held during the day, with a rather fabulous first prize of a trip for two to Florida for the victor.

Where: The Racecourse Newbury, Berkshire, RG14 7NZ

When: August 17, 2013. Gates open at 11am with the first race scheduled for 1:35pm. “Style Spotters” will be scouring the course looking for suitable entrants, but if you can’t wait to be selected, head to the Charter Travel stand to enter. Registration is open between 11am and 2pm, with the winner’s presentation to take place around 4pm.

Wear: Your best weather-appropriate summer racewear. Judging by past competitions, Newbury tends to favour quiet elegance rather than over-the-top showy ensembles.

Prize: The Best Dressed Lady will win a trip for two to Florida flying Virgin Atlantic, with seven nights’ accommodation and car hire, courtesy of Charter Travel.
