Cape Town - The most anticipated social and prestigious equestrian event on the South African calendar is ready to rock Cape Town as fashionistas, socialites, punters and jockeys all get set for The Sun Met celebrated with Mumm taking place on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at Kenilworth Racecourse.

General Access tickets will give the ticket holder access to all public areas including the grandstand with public bars and public catering facilities. There will be three stages offering entertainment and 13 amazing horse races with betting facilities. 

Racegoers are encouraged to dress up to this year’s theme, Decades of Glamour. From vintage to modern, daring to classic the theme explores fashion trends dating back to the 1920’s and presents a host of exciting opportunities for all those attending to express themselves through style and poise.

The Official Sun Met After-party presented by Guess and The Guess Lifestyle Village at Kenilworth Racecourse will commence just after the completion of the last race. Sketchy Bongo, featuring the great vocals of Kyle Deutsch and Shekhina will kick start the evening following by Euphonik in his indomitable style.

Two of South Africa’s most successful dance bands, Goodluck and Mi Casa, will bring the house down with their most popular hits and end the evening with a grandstand finish.

Tickets to the After Party can be bought through Ticketpro channels or at the venue from the ticket sales kiosks (R300 per ticket).

Food and beverage will be on sale inside the Guess Life Style Village.
