"I'd like to invite you to the betting opportunity of a lifetime." - Donald Sinclair in 'Rat Race.'
On the 12th of May, Runway East Shoreditch will be transformed into a circus of fate, fortune and bizarre animal races.
The evening will mostly consist of horse races, but there'll be a few bonus races too. There's a little clue in the cover photo.
There'll be a raffle with seriously cool prizes and we might even consider taking bets on the Eurovision song contest happening that day.
All proceeds will be going to SUDEP, a charity doing wonderful work in raising awareness, funding scientific research and offering support to families affected by sudden death by epilepsy.
To find out more about SUDEP, check out their website.https://sudep.org/
The event will be starting at 7 o'clock. The event will go on until 11-ish. Maybe even 12.
Dress code: However you like. You do you. Whatever makes you comfortable.
Being on the doorstep of Shoreditch, I'm sure we'll be able to find a suitably quirky establishment where we can sip overpriced cocktails out of jam jars afterwards.
If you want to help out with the event please do drop me a message.
Similarly, if you work for a company that might consider sponsoring a horse or offering a raffle prize, also drop me a message.
Feel free to invite anyone you want. There is a capacity of 100 so tickets will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Tickets will be £10 online and £15 on the door. (A hint for the mathematically challenged, buy them online). Drinks will be cheap. Stakes will be high. Whether you fancy yourself quite the gambling pundit or simply looking for a fleeting flutter, come on down.
It will be a good laugh and I look forward to seeing you there!
PS. The fantastic Sumaria family will be driving a Tuk Tuk through 21 countries to Turkey to raise money for SUDEP. To find out more, check out their facebook page.
