Barfoot & Thompson Twilight Summer Night  - Thursday 10 December 2020

Seeking a different option for Christmas entertaining?  This is just the ticket.

Returning after a sell-out last year, your guests will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this precinct where they can choose to base themselves from your reserved site, or mix with other likeminded parties within the private enclosure.

Located right beside the track & close to the action of the birdcage, your guests will have every opportunity to enjoy the atmosphere and excitement of a day at the races as the horses thunder past racing to the winning post.

Immediately following the last race at Ellerslie, you’re invited to join in the fun with others from the day at the official after party in our Cuvée bar.

Your Newmarket Enclosure site includes 10 guest passes, your own mini shade marquee and a delicious buffet dinner leaving you with no option but to relax & enjoy Barfoot & Thompson Twilight Summer Night.

Package caters for ten people and includes:
  • A beautifully-prepared gourmet buffet BBQ meal

  • A drink on arrival

  • Racecourse & Newmarket Marquee Enclosure admission, race book & pen for you and nine guests

  • Your own covered 3 x 3m mini shade marquee complete with clothed table & garden chairs

  • Live racing coverage broadcast on the outdoor super screens

  • Join two or more sites together for larger numbers

  • Entry into the official after-party in our exclusive Cuvée Bar after the last race at Ellerslie

  • Optional add-on: 3.5 hour beverage package featuring selected standard & premium still & sparkling wines, light & standard local & imported beers & non-alcoholic beverages
