Derby Festival Epsom

Investec Derby Festival

The Investec Derby Festival is one of the most famous and iconic events in both the sporting and social calendars. This year's festival takes place on Friday 3rd June (Ladies Day - The OAKS) & Saturday 4th June (The DERBY) in front of over 100,000 spectators and to a TV audience of over 200 million people.

Tickets for the 2016 Investec Derby Festival are onsale online now, with a fantastic advance discount for a limited time only.

The two feature races on Investec Ladies Day are the Investec Coronation Cup and the Investec Oaks. The Investec Oaks, arguably the top race for fillies in Europe, is contended over the same 1 ½ mile course as the Investec Derby and features only the finest 3 year old fillies, ensuring the action off course is matched by the style and glamour alongside it.

The 'Style on the Downs' fashion competition epitomises the essence of Investec Ladies Day, when chic summer outfits and millinery are showcased to find the most stylish lady on course. The competition culminates with a shortlist of 10 being whittled down to the top 3 and the winner crowned live on BBC Television. This year's prize was a luxury trip for two people to Ireland, courtesy of Tourism Ireland.

The highlight of the Investec Derby Festival is undoubtedly the Investec Derby. The race stands apart from any other as the greatest horse race in the world. The Investec Derby will be witnessed by a crowd of up to 125,000 who flock to Epsom Downs to celebrate a one of the most historic and quintessentially English events.

Yankies v Red Sox

LONDON -- Major League Baseball is heading to Europe for the first time, and to mark the historic occasion, it is sending two of its most storied franchises.

The Yankees and Red Sox -- who can lay claim to one of the most heated rivalries in professional sports -- will square off at London Stadium, the home of the 2012 Olympic Games, on June 29-30, 2019. The MLB London Series will be the first time the two clubs have met during the regular season in a city that was not New York or Boston, though the Red Sox will serve as the "home" team for both contests.
