Manager of Down Royal, Mike Todd, said, “I am delighted that the teas were so popular last year and we are hoping to give guests even more of a thrill this year, coupling brand new, eye catching fashion with exhilarating racing.
May Day is the perfect opportunity to enjoy afternoon fashion teas at Down Royal; there is a real style buzz in the air as ladies don their new summer attire, so to add the best dressed prize to this day heightens the intensity and ups the style stakes! Candy Plum’s styling is fabulous and my staff are on hand to cater to each lady’s every whim, a winning combination for the perfect day at the races.”
