Fashion: A heads-up from Mr Jones

Hats off to master milliner Stephen Jones! He plays host to a pop-up helpdesk at luxury hotel and spa Coworth Park in Berkshire this Friday, offering up his finest tips and techniques on wearing and choosing a hat, ahead of Ascot Racecourse's 300th birthday this summer. Who better to advise on tilt and jaunty angle? He might even be able to solve the hot question of the season: are fascinators ever cool? Tickets cost £50, including afternoon tea and goodie bags. coworthpark.com
