The spectacular Metropole Hotel will be the setting for a great night of entertainment, cold drinks, delicious canapes and interviews with some of Ladbrokes leading pundits.

This year you can also win with our Great Northern Brewing Co. lucky door prizes!

Join in the Calcutta action by buying a raffle ticket (or five!) and earn your chance to draw one of the Ladbrokes Townsville Cup runners, before each runner is auctioned off. Be there to ‘buy’ the Cup winner!
