EVENT: Glorious Goodwood
DATE: 1-5 August 2017
LOCATION: Goodwood Estate, West Sussex
OVERVIEW: Giddy-up! Racing’s good, great and gorgeous trot off to Chichester tomorrow for the highly-anticipated Glorious Goodwood. With five days of thrilling action set against the magnificent backdrop of the rolling Sussex countryside, The Qatar Goodwood Festival – popularly known as ‘Glorious Goodwood’ – is one of the highlights of the flat-racing season.
With its position as one of the largest race meetings in the world, the Qatar Goodwood Festival is a spectacle that has to be experienced. Elegant fashion combined with some of the greatest races in the world create a festival week like no other.
This social and sporting soiree is SO much more than just a day at the races, with as much action off the track as on it. Which Hollywood A-listers will the Earl of March (aristocrat, entrepreneur and visionary director of all that is Goodwood) and Kinrara lure there this year? We couldn’t possibly reveal. Simply prepare for much cheering, clapping and more champagne, Pimm’s and people-watching.
WHAT TO WEAR: Famous for being a stylish yet relaxed occasion, Glorious’ trademark is all about low key luxury. Think strictly summer suits or blazers and panama hats for the men, and beautiful floaty dresses topped off with a statement hat for the ladies.
