Experience Cape Splendour at the 2024 Cape Town Met

Get ready for the most anticipated event on the Cape Town social calendar- the Cape Town Met.

The event, scheduled for Saturday, 27 January 2024, at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth, promises to deliver unparalleled glamour, thrilling races, and a few celebrity sightings.

What To Expect

Now in its 162nd edition, this year’s theme will revolve around Cape Splendour, a fusion of glamour, grace and glory – from world-class hospitality to extraordinary haute couture.

Donovan Everitt, Cape Racing’s Chief Operating Officer, said that the Cape Town Met is set to be a game-changer on all fronts.

“Cape Racing is proud and excited to unveil a new, upgraded Hollywoodbets Kenilworth racecourse. This revitalised venue will elevate the iconic race to new heights and create a fresh experience. We’re excited to blend fashion, food, and world-class entertainment in a unique space, ensuring that the 2024 World Sports Betting Cape Town Met will be bigger and better than anything that has gone before in what is a long and truly proud history,” he teased.

World Sports Betting CEO Warren Tannous said the leading betting brand was proud to be associated with one of the world’s significant horseracing events.

“The World Sports Betting Cape Town Met is undoubtedly more than a horse race. It’s an iconic event that brings the Rainbow Nation together as we enjoy the thrill of the sport of kings and the majesty of the thoroughbred in a historic venue and social setting, where we celebrate life, champions, and the joys and rare privilege of being a part of history,” he added.

The afternoon will feature a jam-packed programme of action and entertainment on and off the track, including live music, pop-up performances, best-dressed contests and more, and from 7pm racegoers can party up a storm at the Official Heineken Silver Afterparty.

Limited tickets are still available, so get yours, dress to impress, and get ready for the social event of the year.

Strictly no U-18s.
