Last weekend a few Edinburgh Bloggers attended the Edinburgh Fashion Launch weekend event. We all spent the weekend drinking bubbly in the VIP lounge and sitting 'in the frow' at all the shows - its a hard job sometimes!

PRESS RELEASE: Musselburgh Racecourse’s most prestigious events





Our Survey Said... Celebrity Host Will Turn Heads at Ladies Day


Lucky racegoers are getting the chance to saddle up with heart-throb Vernon Kay as it’s announced he is to be this year’s VIP host at one of Musselburgh Racecourse’s most prestigious events


The popular TV personality will join attendees at Stobo Castle Ladies Day, widely recognised as one of Scotland’s biggest fashion extravaganzas.


Vernon, who is best known as the presenter of prime time TV show All Star Family Fortunes, will host the after racing party in the Stage Marquee at the five star attraction just a few miles from Edinburgh city centre. 


The race meeting, which also features Musselburgh’s richest horse race of the season, the £100,000 William Hill Scottish Sprint Cup, attracted a sell out record of 10,300 people last year. 


Sarah Montgomery, Senior Operations and Commercial Managerat Musselburgh Racecourse, said: “As guests go, Vernon is a real thoroughbred. 


“Not only is he one of the best-known faces on British TV, but he has the perfect fashion credentials to fully appreciate the riot of style and colour that is Stobo Castle Ladies Day.


Halways has a smile on his face, which we’re sure will make him a hugely popular choice with the women who turn out in such large numbers to make the day such a huge success.


We are delighted to officially confirm Vernon will be joining and very much look forward to welcoming him for a fantastic day of racing, fashion and socialising


“Stobo Castle Ladies Day is a sell out success every year, and with tickets selling fast, we are already on track for the same result this year.  We are encouraging those looking to attend to purchase their tickets now.”


Musselburgh Racecourse is firmly established as one of the UK’s most stylish racecourses, hosting 28 flat and jumps meetings each year. Already popular with racing enthusiasts, it is increasingly becoming a draw for both families and corporate clients. 


As part of the year-long celebration of the historic racecourse’s 200th anniversary, there will also be a special Bi-Centenary Celebration Raceday on Friday, July 8th
