A highlight of the day is the inaugural half-time show that was launched last year. Taking place just before the main race, to announce it in the grandest way possible, this year’s extravaganza will feature an impressive line-up of drum majorettes, a massive field band, a choir and incredible dancers. No other than Goodluck will be headlining our exclusive half-time show.
