Royal Ascot is the highlight of the British horse racing season, and wearing a hat is compulsory! We will be opening the shop for 5 weeks around Royal Ascot, from June 1 until July 5, 2020 (dates to be confirmed). This is a period when hats are more in demand and it will be a great opportunity for you to raise awareness of your brand and to sell some of your creations to thousands of worldwide race-goers who come to Britain for the races every year! May also marks the start of the summer wedding season in the UK, so this means there will be plenty of ladies looking for a hat to match their outfit. Spaces are allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
