The Bucket List Beach Club Marquee comes to Randwick Racecourse

The Bucket List Beach Club Marquee comes to Randwick Racecourse again during this Spring Carnival for four consecutive race days (Saturday 1 October 2016, Saturday 8 October 2016, Saturday 15 October 2016 and Tuesday 1 November 2016).

I attended the Bucket List Marquee on Epsom Day – Saturday 1 October 2016.

The Bucket List Beach Club Marquee is a self contained precinct on the Leger Lawn that brings the iconic Bondi beach to the racetrack. The interiors includes beach themed painted walls. day beds, colourful furniture, betting facilities, a bar, a diner and a DJ.

The menu, prepared by The Bucket List Chef Tom Walton, provides a casual beachside lunch with options such as Queensland fresh prawn and truffle rolls with celery and herbs; fish and chips; and Tuna poke tostados with avocado, soy, sesame and shallots..

Racegoers can also expect signature cocktails (such as Mojitos, Cosmopolitans and Margaritas) and other drinks including the new low calorie Heineken 3 in addition to a bevvy of live entertainment with some of Sydney’s best DJs performing throughout the day.

For those who wanted to watch the AFL Grand Final, The Bucket List Beach Club Marquee had a large screen dedicated to those who wanted to watch the Swans v Western Bulldogs during the raceday.

For $99, your ticket to The Bucket List Beach Club Marquee includes:
– Exclusive access to the exclusive Bucket List Beach Club Marquee on the Leger Lawn
– General admission to the course
– One meal created by The Bucket List Chef – Tom Walton
– Two Heineken 3 beverages (any additional drinks purchased on consumption)
– Access to betting and bookmaking facilities
– Complimentary infield parking via High Street.

After all the fun in The Bucket List Beach Club Marquee, my group of friends migrated to the members area (as I have been a member of the racecourse for more than 6 years) where we enjoyed champagne in the champagne bar, oysters from Sydney Oyster Girls, and then a concert in the theatre of the horses with Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora and his Australian partner, guitarist and vocalist Orianthi.

The Bucket List journal is launched at The Bucket List Bondi Beach

Hanna Axelsson Sahlen and Ashleigh Powell (aka Axel and Ash) launched Axel & Ash in April 2012 when they both finished reading Sebastian Terry’s book ’100 Things’. The book inspired them to follow their dreams. After sharing their personal bucket lists, they discovered they shared similar interests in travel and a desire to start a business, and decided to develop inspiring journals. Two years later, on 19 November 2014, Axel and Ash launched their second book, The Bucket List, at The Bucket List Bondi Beach. 

My Bucket List is beautifully bound book in black cloth that invites the reader to decide what they would like to do with their one wild and crazy life by collecting all their dreams, desires and ideas in the one place.

The duo first entered the world of book publishing in with their first book, Swept Away by Wanderlust. This beautifully bound book, in an earthy latte coloured cloth, is filled with writing prompts for everyone who wanted to capture their stories whilst travelling in a fun but easy way. This book has been so successful that globetrotters and jetsetters all around the world are buying it from trendy stores in major metropolitan cities like London, Paris and Sydney.

Hanna Axelsson Sahlen is a TV studio director for ABC news while Ashleigh Powell works in finance. Both women have been very successful in their professions and are planning to release more life-style journals in the future.
