Barfoot & Thompson Twilight Summer Night
The festive season is upon us and, let’s be honest, you’ve mentally clocked out of work… all the more reason to make mid-week partying a thing! Make the most of these magical summer evenings and head down to Ellerslie Racecourse this Wednesday. Barfoot & Thompson’s Twilight Summer Night is nothing like your standard raceday. It features the launch of the International Jockeys’ World Cup and sees guests partying until late. Stick around until after the horses are tucked up in bed because it will all be going down at the after-party. The tunes will be provided by Jupiter Project (aka the coolest kids on the block) as they play an epic two-and-a-half-hour set.
