Epsom Derby Dress Code | Investec Derby Festival 2020

Each Summer, Epsom Downs Racecourse plays host over 155,000 racegoers over two fabulous days of horse racing at the Investec Epsom Derby Festival. As one of the five Classics of flat racing, The Derby showcases racing fans dressed to impress as men and women make the annual pilgrimage to the Epsom Downs.

The summer season draws a spectacular array of fashion and Epsom Racecourse is awash with colour as gentlemen wear sharp summer suits and morning dress with top hats, and ladies reflect both classic and modern designs with dresses and facinators, especially on Ladies’ Day when the Style Awards takes place.
