Tickets are selling fast for Alexandra Park’s Fashion At The Oaks on Friday 4 March. The inaugural event is a key part of The Winger Group’s 2016 Oaks & Derby Festival.

Fashion At The Oaks ticket holders will be among the first to see the autumn collections of Adrienne Winkelmann, Hailwood, Sabatini, Tanya Carlson, Yvonne Bennetti, and Zambesi.

“We’re thrilled with the high level of interest. People know it’s going to be a fantastic night admiring the latest collections from our fashion greats while also enjoying the best in New Zealand harness racing on our stunning track below,” says Alexandra Park chief executive Dominique Dowding.

At $75 per person, the tickets include a two-course dinner, a complimentary glass of Mumm Champagne on arrival into the Tasman Room, a complimentary goody bag and much more. Hospitality packages for Oaks Night also include a fabulous Top Of The Park experience.

The following Friday night, 11 March, is Derby Night.

“We’ve got some great Tasman Room and Top of the Park packages for Derby Night too, but what’s really garnering strong interest is our new trackside Garden Entertainment Bar. That is going to be so much fun,” says Alexandra Park Sales & Marketing Manager Joel Reichardt.

“The Garden Bar package is great value and subsequently we’ll see some great numbers. We’re selling tables of four people for $120. That’s just $30 each and includes an antipasto platter and a bottle of bubbles on arrival, ongoing entertainment, and access to the after party with a DJ,” he says.

On Derby Night the garden bar will have a live performance by Jupiter Project. At the same time PJ from ZM will be hosting ZM radio competition winners in the ZM VIP area.
