Ladies Day at Fakenham Races

Sunday 4 June

There are very few dates where the ladies of Norfolk can get dressed in their finest attire and enjoy a very special day out, so why not come and join us at Jarrold Ladies Day at Fakenham Racecourse.

It is with delight that Fakenham Racecourse can confirm that this year’s Ladies Day, which will take place on Sunday 4 June, will be sponsored by Jarrold department store in Norwich. Fakenham Racecourse recognises the importance of collaborating with a premium, local, family owned business that shares the same values, and also has a strong presence in the Norfolk fashion world.  Representatives from both Jarrold and Fakenham Racecourse believe that by working together they will create many more exciting opportunities to enhance the customer experience at this annual event and secure it firmly in the county’s society calendar.

There will be competitions for best dressed lady, best dressed couple and best hat on race day and we really hope many of those attending will enter to win some great prizes! 

 The first of six races on Jarrold Ladies Day Sunday 4 June will be at 2pm with gates opening at 1pm.
Adult entry starts from £10 per adult and children 17 years and under (accompanied by adults) are FREE.

 We hope you will also book with our Personal Stylist, Florrie to help you find your favourite outfit for Ladies Day! The service is free and we are sure to offer you the best styling service in town. If you would like to book an appointment, please call 01603 660661 or ask in store for more details.

The Chief Executive of Fakenham Racecourse, David Hunter said:

“All of us at Fakenham are very excited and enthused to be working with Jarrold of Norwich who have agreed to be the title sponsor of Fakenham Ladies Race Day on a three-year deal. The inaugural running of The Jarrold Ladies Race Day will be on Sunday 4th June 2017 when the iconic Norwich department store will sponsor the whole day, in addition to the principle handicap steeple chase race. This is a really fantastic fit for two very well-known and highly respected Norfolk brands to be working so closely together. There is much synergy between Jarrold and the racecourse and we know that the partnership will increase the appeal, spread and experience of Ladies Day.

2017 will be the 6th year that Fakenham has hosted a Ladies Day, and Jarrold Ladies Day is sure to be the best yet. We have some exciting ideas that we will be putting together with Jarrolds before the race day and also on the actual day. We are particularly proud that Jarrold will be taking the leading role in running and supporting our best-dressed lady, best-dressed couple and best hat competitions on the day.”


John Adams Director of Jarrolds Norwich said:

“Jarrold is delighted to announce our association with Fakenham Racecourse. We are very much looking forward to the Jarrold Ladies Race Day becoming a favourite event in the Norfolk Summer Calendar.”
