She only uses the highest quality 100% wool tweed from a Yorkshire based mill making her clothing truly local and British.

Best Couple Competition – sponsored by The Black Bull Inn
Our Best Dressed Couple competition is a new addition to Ladies’ Day this year – our winners will receive a voucher for a two-course dinner for two people at The Black Bull Inn!
Situated in the village of Moulton the Black Bull is famed for its seafood, has an exceptional a la carte menu of the highest quality with innovative and traditional dishes. The traditional bar is dog friendly where you can have just a drink or a bite to eat. Plus, the newly launched Scrumptious Seven Menu is definitely worth a visit; 7 Dishes at just £7.95 each!

We have teamed up with Yorkshire Dales Distillery again this year to offer a complimentary cocktail to the first 100 ladies to arrive and visit the Yorkshire Dales Distillery stand!
Established in 2016 and located a stone’s throw from Catterick Racecourse, Yorkshire Dales Distillery is family run and multi-award winning. The owners, Sarah and Tony, and their team create, develop, distil and bottle premium craft spirits, in very small batches, using a unique Swaledale mineral water. The Distillery also hosts events, offers group tours and tastings and provides an exclusive contract craft distilling service to customers large and small. The employment and training of young people, ex-offenders, Veterans and the long term unemployed is prioritised.
Yorkshire Dales Distillery produces two fascinating ranges. Inspired by the rugged and challenging landscape of the Yorkshire Dales, the Ram range of spirits includes Desert Ram Army Strength London Dry Gin, with bold North African and Middle Eastern Flavours, and Intrepid Ram Golden Yorkshire Rum, distilled with Yorkshire heather and honey and oak aged at the Distillery. These contrast with the YD range which is full of colour and flavour and includes Honeyed Rhubarb Gin and Bramble Berry Gin which they’ll be serving on Ladies Day.
Start planning those outfits ladies (and gents!) as Ladies’ Day is fast approaching!
