It’s called ‘the race that stops a nation’ and for good reason! Melbourne Cup is the annual horserace that brings offices together across Australia and New Zealand with some sweet (and perhaps some not so sweet) sweepstakes. Each year Kiwis have been getting more and more into the Melbourne Cup and this year is no different… Auckland’s ultimate 2014 Melbourne Cup celebration has to be the one at Longroom in Ponsonby. Sponsored by G.H.Mumm Champagne, Longroom will be transformed into a Melbourne Cup mecca, with huge screens displaying the races, canapés, live entertainment, TAB and, of course, G.H.Mumm champagne. Like the ‘Fashion on the field’ at the actual Melbourne Cup, guests of G.H.Mumm Melbourne Cup at Longroom are encouraged to dress up, because there will be prizes awarded for best dressed. The 154th Melbourne Cup is November 4th, with Longroom festivities running from 3pm to 5:30pm. Take the afternoon off… with Melbourne Cup on it’s not like you’re office will be productive anyway. May as well get out and enjoy it properly! Tickets are $80 per person for a Melbourne Cup hospitality package – including G.H.Mumm champagne, canapés, live entertainment and TAB. Tickets can be purchased by contacting the team at Longroom on 09 360 8803 or by emailing [email protected]. Because they’re our neighbours right across the street, Longroom have given us a double pass to G.H.Mumm Melbourne Cup for a lucky Remix reader… complete with VIP transport to the event in a brand new Jaguar XF. Super simple to enter. ‘Like’ the Facebook field below and comment your friend you’ll bring if you win. Winner drawn Friday 31st October. You must be aged 18 or over to enter.
