The Valley Ladies Night

It wouldn't be Ladies Day without The Style Awards.

The Style Awards celebrate the best dressed people on course and are an opportunity for you to get dressed up with your friends and family and make a fashion statement at the races.


Our style awards are open to all with some fabulous prizes on offer. We will be awarding prizes to Best Dressed Lady, Best Dressed Man and Best Dressed Couple.


To enter the Style Awards simply head down to the photo wall where our judges will be roaming around. If you catch their eye they will ask you to come back for the formal judging at 7.15pm. No one leaves empty handed though as our photographers will give you a photo print out to take home as a memento of the night.

2024 Judges

Gill began her millinery journey after a long and enjoyable career in teaching. Gill has always loved hats so decided that she’d learn how to make them and after only a few lessons was completely hooked! Gill loves how a hat can transform an outfit and make the wearer feel so special.

Gill works from her studio at home in Bromsgrove and has clients all over the world. Gill and her clients have been lucky enough to win awards in both the best dressed and best hat categories at many racecourses and have been featured in the press and on TV.
