A Right Royal Affair With DTB

The Queen’s momentous Platinum Jubilee is around the corner, and celebrations start in just a few days.

With bunting and flags adorning every street corner it’s got DTB in a real Royal mood; let’s take a look at events throughout the year where you can get your fix of British tradition, splendour and excitement…

Epsom Derby – 3rd – 4th June 2022

Racing’s most spectacular carnival, this flat racing event is the birthplace of thoroughbred racing, all chasing prestige as much as the prize money.

Having had the privilege of welcoming Her Majesty The Queen for nearly 70 years, including horses racing in her colours, preparations for her Platinum Jubilee unfortunately have meant she is pulling out of the 2022 event. Nevertheless, The Derby will retain its sense of Her Majesty with a spectacular guard of honour comprised of 40 retired and current jockeys who have ridden in her famous purple and gold silks.

No race on the planet is quite like The Derby at Epsom Downs Racecourse. The Derby is for everyone, from racing royalty to racing rookie. You can be part of the 2022 two-day event in one of DTB’s packages, from award winning restaurants to intimate private boxes. Whether you’re hosting clients or enjoying a day out with friends and family, why not do it in style. Secure last-minute availability or register for next year of this sell out event.

Royal Ascot – 14th – 18th June 2022

The epitome of British tradition and glamour, Royal Ascot is an annual flat race which remains a heady mix of pomp, heritage, fashion and sport.

Each of the five days has its highlights, with Opening Day attracting a full complement of royals, indeed the day is immortalised in the Broadway favourite My Fair Lady. Thursday follows with the famous Ladies Day where racegoers are not shy to don oversized hats and enjoy the thrilling Gold Cup race.

A range of hospitality options means you don’t have to be adorned in your top hat and tails, a range of informal options including the atmospheric Village mean Ascot is an event for everyone. Similarly, if dressing up to the nines is what Ascot is all about for you, revel in the tradition and splendour of the Furlong Enclosure, with all the sumptuous inclusions one would expect.
