Ascot Guide

The race is on for the best hats at Ascot

Royal Ascot – the lowdown

Ascot is not just about horse racing. The huge event is just as famous for its strict dress code, free flowing champagne and ladies in spectacular hats. Ascot is renowned for attracting the crème de la crème of British society – celebrities, sports personalities, millionaires, WAGs, and, of course, the Royal Family. Fancy a flutter? As one the world’s best attended equine events, there are also plenty of visiting racing enthusiasts who might be willing to give you a tip or two.

Pros:

  • The chance to don your finery. Yes, ladies, you get to wear a hat!
  • You’ll enjoy watching the celebrity spectators as much as the horses
  • If your horse wins, it’s very exciting!

Cons:

  • You must follow the dress code or you’re out
  • It might rain, leaving you and your stilettos stuck in the mud
  • You could lose all your money if you gamble on the wrong horse

Glasto Guide

Glastonbury, the epic culmination of music and good vibes  

Glastonbury – the lowdown

Glastonbury is the most legendary of all British music festivals. It’s been going since the 70’s and every year it hosts the world’s biggest names in music. The vast site is attended by an eclectic crowd – from trendy celebrities and face-painted teenagers, to stag dos, families with kids, and middle aged rock fans holding on to their lost youths. Because it often rains, the event has gained a reputation for being a very muddy affair. Hence the classic Glasto accessory – a pair of Wellington boots.

Pros:

  • See the best musicians, bands, comedians and acts in the world
  • The atmosphere is incredible – totally electric and full of good vibes
  • If you like festivals, you will love Glastonbury

Cons:

  • These days, it’s almost impossible to get a ticket
  • It will probably rain, so be prepared for lots of mud
  • Bad if you hate crowds and queuing for the portaloos
