We had such a brilliant ‘myOE on tour’ whirlwind day at the Races for Royal Ascot! Everyone looked amazing in their finest Races attire, topped off with some fabulous facsinators and matching ties for the men – we were quite a sight waiting for the Coach first thing in the morning. Topdeck didn’t let us down with the sumptuous spread of food for our lunch, washed down with bottomless bubbly to get us well into the swing of the day. We were delighted to be positioned perfectly to see her Majesty the Queen (magnificent in Magenta) who gave us a wave and a smile as she passed us!
Our brand spanking new Village Enclosure was the first new enclosure to open at the Royal Meeting for more than 100 years, providing us with a new perspective on the spectacle of Royal Ascot, located on the inside of the track looking back towards the final Furlong with Ascot’s iconic Grandstand as a backdrop. It promised a younger, more vibrant festival atmosphere with live music, DJs and al fresco food stalls – in the spirit of Britains summertime “pop-up” scene – and it really didn’t disappoint!
We had such a brilliant day, which for some of us continued on to dancing into the early hours to celebrate/commiserate our wins/losses for the day! Here are a few of the photos from the day – to see the full set head over to our Facebook page for the album. We are already planning ‘myOE does Ascot’ 2017 – who would like to join us?
