Best Dressed

The Best Dressed competition really took off in 2018 with 56 entries, and we expect even more in 2019.

The Best Dressed sections are kindly sponsored by Mary Jean Wood Insurance Services.

With hairdressers and make-up artists on site and great prizes on offer you need to make sure you join in the fun and spirit of our event and come along dressed in your best '50s and '60s fashion.


The Best Dressed sections are:

  • Best Dressed Lady
  • Best Dressed Man
  • Best Dressed Child (under 12 years)

You can enter here by filling in the form below, or you can enter on the day at our information centre. We would much rather you enter online as this does help us with our planning. Please note the changes to requirements below. This is due to the number of entries and to ensure that everyone gets a fair chance on the day. 

You will need to pick up your contestant numbers from our Information Centre. This will open at 10am and as time is tight you must be there no later than 12noon or you will miss out.

At 12.15 you need to report to the Caroline Bay Hall where pre-judging will take place

At 12.30 Caroline Bay Hall doors close for pre judging - no late entries accepted.  

At 1.30 you will need to meet behind the stage area ready to take to the catwalk at 2pm where the winners will be announced.

All judge's decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Thank you so much for entering our competition, we hope that you enjoy it as much as we all do.
