Slingsby Ebor Fashion Lawn

Harrogate-based premium Gin brand, Slingsby, is the headline sponsor of this year’s Ebor Fashion Lawn, taking place at the Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor Festival (Wednesday 21 – Saturday 24 August).

Fashion has become a key focus at the four-day racing event for racegoers, and the summer festival is famous for its stylish attendees. Slingsby Gin will be the first ever sponsor of the Ebor Fashion Lawn, which has been created to celebrate racegoers’ love of style.

The sponsorship will see Slingsby branding on-stage, and incorporated within the design of the whole area, which is situated within the picturesque lawns of the Edwardian Weighing Room. Co-Founder of Spirit of Harrogate Marcus Black and Marketing Director Clare Gibson will form part of the judging panel throughout the 4 days and will be helping to select the very best dressed spectators throughout the duration of the event.

Racegoers will be able to watch and participate in the Slingsby Ebor Fashion Lawn without the need to book in advance. Combining fashion and fun, the catwalk is open to all and a chance to show off outfits whilst friends cheer from front row.
