The Marquee

The anchor event of The Deighton Cup Weekend at the Races, Thoroughbred is now in its fourth year of fabulousness and easily the most stylish event of the summer. Beautiful ladies in elegant hats and fascinators sip champagne alongside gentlemen dabbling in games of chance, enjoying superbly-crafted cocktails. The Marquee is panoramically infused with an amazing crowd, for there is not a more dashing plateau of merriment all year.

HousexGuest Supper Club

The official after party and dinner for Thoroughbred, HousexGuest is being transformed into the Jockey Supper Club. After a grueling day of looking prim at the track it’s time to loosen the ascot and remove the gloves. In the style of the Classic American supper club of the 1930s, eclectic music and characters amuse guests well into the night beyond the amuse-bouche.
