11-10-16 - Melbourne Cup
November is fast approaching, and as always the Melbourne Cup will fall on the first Tuesday of the month. Queenstown will be bringing Melbourne to New Zealand,and we will be celebrating the big day in style! The local shops have their best frocks in the windows, and an array of fabulous head wear has emerged. So ladies, dust off your best fascinator, or even better, use it as an excuse to treat yourself to a new one. Gentlemen dig out your best suit, find your favourite tie and sharpen that pocketchief. If there ever was an excuse needed to look your best and drink Champagne, we have it. The Ballarat Trading Company will be throwing the most exclusive and glamorous of all Melbourne Cup parties. There will be fashion shows, sweepstakes, auctions and most importantly, plenty of bubbles. There are two ticket options, a $25 ticket which includes entry and a glass of Mumm Champagne, or the $65 option which includes entry, a glass of Mumm Champagne and also a delicious three course lunch. To make this fantastic event even better, we've teamed up with our friends at St. John and $5 from every ticket sale goes directly to them, as well as the funds made from the sweepstakes and auctions. So, get glam and come on down to The Ballarat Trading Company on Tuesday the 1st of November from 12:30pm to celebrate Melbourne Cup the real way.
