Crowning Glory

Crowning Glory: A Milliners’ Celebration of All the King’s Colours

We are delighted to be partnering with Go Epsom, The British Hat Guild and The Jockey Club to showcase a unique fascination of hats inspired by the royal racing colours. Created by some of the biggest names in UK millinery, each of the 22 hats is fashioned in combinations of scarlet, purple, black and gold, the colours of the royal racing silks, to celebrate the Coronation.

The hats are being exhibited over the Coronation weekend at the QIPCO Guineas Festival in Newmarket (5th – 7th May) and The Derby at Epsom Downs (3rd – 4th June). One or more of these one-off pieces could be yours as they are being auctioned to raise money for Brain Tumour Research.

Don't forget to share on social media using #AllTheKingsColours

Please note that the hat auction is now closed.
