I’VE PICKED MY OUTFIT AND THINK I COULD BE CROWNED THE STYLE STAKES WINNER. HOW DO I ENTER?

Keep your eyes out for an announcement in the lead up to the summer 2022 event that will include our contesting partner, Orbiiit.

WHAT IS THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD AND HOW DO I ENTER?

For the second year in a row, the style competition will extend beyond Deighton Cup day at the track, and into the people’s hands with The People’s Choice Style Stakes award.

 

Feeling like you could become the People’s Choice? Post your race day look at the track on event day and tag @deightoncup and use the hashtags #DCPeoplesChoice and #DeightonCup. The photo must be full length and include a single individual to qualify. We’ll narrow it down to a final 12 candidates and share the voting platform through our website.

WHAT’S THE COCKTAIL JOCKEY MIXOLOGY COMPETITION?

The Deighton Cup and its judging panel of industry heavyweights invite the crème-de-la-crème of mixologists, barmen, and aspiring booze hounds to partake in the 6th annual Cocktail Jockey mixology competition. More details coming soon.

WHO MAKES THE FOOD AND DRINKS AT DEIGHTON CUP?

We’ve heard you! At popular request, lunch will no longer be included as part of the ticket price. Due to the growth of the event and feedback of providing more food options, a greater selection of pre-purchase lunches will be available.
