On Thursday 12 May, we host our annual Ladies Day at Perth Racecourse. It's the ideal opportunity to don your finery as you enjoy a day of thrilling jump races, while raising money for breast cancer research at the same time.

With so much going on this year, we'd like to tell you all about the 5 things not to miss at this year’s Perth Ladies Day...

  1. Racing, of course! There is nothing quite like a day at the races and Perth Racecourse hosts some of the UK’s most fantastic summer jumps. Make sure to watch the final race of the day, where our judges will crown the best turned out horse with our very own host, Big Pink Dress.
  2. Big Pink Dress. He's 2.2m tall in his pink dress and wig - and he’s our hostess with the mostess at Perth Ladies Day. Big Pink Dress will entertain the crowds on stage in the VIP marquee. If you spot him, tweet your pictures using the hash tag #SpotTheFrock! You can even get your picture taken with him in our fabulous pink hay bale photo booth, courtesy of Volac.
  3. The Pamper Lounge. For anyone who needs a rest from the races, our beauty experts will be on hand in the pamper lounge to offer relaxing foot massages and mini-pedis. And, if your feet need a break, our Rollasoles foldable shoes are the perfect solution for high heel-weary toes. The must-have foldable shoes will be sold on the day, with profits supporting Breast Cancer Now.
  4. Our VIP raffles. Thanks to the support of numerous Scottish businesses, we have an array of fabulous prizes on offer. Bring along plenty of pennies for your chance to win spa days, champagne, and afternoon tea.
  5. Best Dressed Lady. Make sure you put on your finest frock and up your style stakes! This year, Perth Racecourse will offer the highest ever cash prize of £2,000 to the best dressed lady. A panel of judges will crown the lucky lady, and the winner will be announced live on stage.

If you haven’t got your tickets for the racing event of the season, you can still buy Perth Ladies Day tickets here*.

Over the past seven years, the event has raised more than £65,000 for our vital breast cancer research and has helped to raise awareness of this devastating disease.
