Dress Code Dropped!

Dress code dropped by The Jockey Club

The Jockey Club, who run more than a dozen of the UK’s top racing venues has dropped its dress codes for racing venues as part of a commitment to make race days more accessible and inclusive to everyone. With the usual dress code dropped, people are not being discouraged from wearing their best attire but are encouraged to wear what makes them feel more comfortable and confident.

The usual dress code for such events would have been formal wear like suits, smart shoes, dresses and even top hats and tails for certain venues.

There are still some restrictions on what people can wear. Offensive clothing or fancy dress is not permitted, as well as sports kits. It is also mandatory that formal clothing still be work in the Queen’s stand on Derby Day in Epsom. Royal Ascot is not covered by The Jockey Club and so the dress code for the venue will remain the same.

The venues that The Jockey Club has under its control are: Aintree, Carlisle, Cheltenham, Exeter, Epsom Downs, Haydock Park , Huntingdon, Kempton Park, Market Rasen, Newmarket, Nottingham, Sandown Park, Warwick, and Wincanton.
