The TABtouch Masters, part of Ascot's Spring Racing Carnival, is back this November and in 2018 they’re taking things up a notch with all things music, including the addition of a silent disco. We love!
It’s all happening as part of Kirin Railway Stakes Day on Saturday 24 November, with gates opening from 9am.
Racegoers can expect plenty of action in The Flametree Garden on this day which dates back to 1887 (we’re pretty sure they didn’t have silent discos back then). Packed with beanbags, pop up cocktail bars and food trucks, there’ll be a full day’s lineup of music acts including the six-piece band Swift before Perth's premier party band Felix takes you through to the afternoon.
The silent disco will be happening from 1pm to 5pm, then the action really heats up when the uber-energetic Furnace and the Fundamentals takes centre stage straight after the last race (and live from the Mounting Yard). They're sure to keep you partying into the evening.
If all you really want to see is the million dollar thoroughbred action, you’ll definitely want to add the two other TABTouch Masters race days to your iCals—Crown Perth Winterbottom Stakes Day (1 December) and Magic Millions Kingston Town Classic Day (8 December).
Winterbottom Stakes is your more refined racing event with Fashion On The Field, food and drinks that celebrate regional flavours and live fashion illustrations by Michelle Pike. You can soak up all the action (and sink a few bevvies) at the Mumm Champagne Garden, Mumm Balloon Bar, Rosé Garden and Gin Parlour. Plus, the Kamal's Quarter food truck will be on standby to fill your stomach with Spanish paella and tapas.
The Flametree Garden will be back in action at the Kingston Town Classic and you can book a table in Flying Colours or Terrace restaurants to catch all the action with a side of delish food and drinks.
Summer's shaping up to be a fun one, for more info on these three amazing events head here.
