Luna Park “Big Top Sports Lunch”
Over 800 sporting fans made their way to Luna Park in Sydney today for the annual Big Sports Lunch. Luna Park Venues presented the sell-out event in the Big Top for the eighth year running, gathering members from all aspects of the sporting world together to celebrate Aussie sport with live entertainment and a delectable menu.
Guests enjoyed a specially tailored three-course lunch, including braised Guinness beef short ribs accompanied by smoked onion puree, colcannon mash, spinach, bacon & pearl onions, mustard sauce as the mouth-watering main meal. The Deck bar was open for guests to enjoy beverages and networking, while taking in the spectacular views of Sydney Harbour before and after the event.
Luna Park Venues General Manager Sales, James Granter, was pleased to present the luncheon for the eighth running and to have watched the event reinvent itself each year.
“We’re delighted to have seen our event concept grow and expand over the past eight years with the support of our major sponsors Sky Racing and the Big Sports Breakfast team. It’s always a really fun day where guests from all areas of the sporting community come together to celebrate Australian sport and network while taking in some of Sydney’s most iconic landmarks,” Granter said.
“I think the success of the event is built on Luna Park’s waterfront location and expansive harbour views, coupled with our award-winning catering team and the ‘up close and personal’ access guests are given to their sporting heroes.”
Event hosts Terry Kennedy and Michael Slater held their own against guest speaker and comedian Anh Do in the Big Top, while sporting greats came together on two panels to discuss popular sporting codes; football and racing.
A number of guests took advantage of the stunning harbourside location and chose to arrive by ferry – just a six-minute ride from Circular Quay – as well as more traditional means. Trains from the city to Milson’s Point train station and a designated parking complex for guests to park their vehicles were also available.
