J&B Met – Sunglass Hut
The J&B Met is around the corner and in the build-up to this year’s event we thought we’d share some of the work we did at this prestigious Cape Town event last year.
It was the first time we worked with Jadee of Watermelon Events and we were well impressed with what she did with the Sunglass Hut stand at the Met. We were contracted to capture the stand and the events of the day. It was the first time we did photos at the J&B Met and hoping to do the same this year again!
The J&B Met is South Africa’s most prestigious horse racing event and is right up there with the Rothmans Durban July later in the year. It’s a vibrant social mix of the fashionable and the famous, the groovers and movers –
what a way to kickstart the year. This year’s event will be held on the 31st of January 2015.
The J&B Met dates back to the 1880s and has been run ever since. The race became an iconic South African event after J&B became sponsors in 1977. After 38 years running, the Sponsors now hold the record of the longest continuing sports sponsorship in the country. The race showcases twenty of South Africa’s top horses who compete for a R2.5 million stake over 2 000 metres.
General entry tickets for the J&B Met are priced at R125 and are available through www.jbscotch.co.za, as well as designated tote outlets throughout the country.
