The three-day festival from Friday, August 5 to Sunday, August 7, promises to have everything to get racegoers galloping to the starting fence, especially on Saturday when it’s Ladies Day.

1. Dress to impress
Horse racing and fashion go hand in hand – and who doesn’t love the chance to get dressed up to the nines! The style stakes are high on Ladies Day and it’s the chance to have a great day out with your mates, put your posh frock on, and go for glamour with a capital G.
2. Style Awards
If you’re feeling good and your look’s on point, you can enter The Ladies Day Style Awards 2022.

4. Fabulous food – and you can even pack a picnic
Haydock is renowned for its great hospitality and fabulous dining experiences, with informal eating at the Kauto Star restaurant and Harry’s Bistro, and the chance to wine and dine in style with a panoramic view of the course from the Park Suite. And, if you want to celebrate the fact it’s summer and, hopefully, the sun is shining, you can even pack a picnic and throw your blanket down on the grassed area in front of the grandstands.

Set in parkland between Haydock, Ashton-in-Makerfield, Golborne and Newton-le-Willows, it’s only a mile from junction 23 of the M6, and just off the East Lancs (and parking is free!).
