The Champagne Mumm marquee in the Birdcage at Flemington is always a highlight. Every year there is a different theme which reinvents the luxurious marquee. We got a little glimpse of the new layout and design at the Melbourne Spring Carnival Birdcage preview. Champagne Mumm celebrates this years Melbourne Cup for the 10th time. Have a first look with us in this extravagant space. The red and pink theme flows througout the hotel and offers plenty of spaces to party, drink and relax.

How to not open a bottle of champagne – champagne shower
Highlight was the giant champagne bottle opening in front of the Maison Mumm. It’s impressive to watch the bottle opening and the champagne reaches impressive hights. Only problem is … what goes up must come down. Kate Peck got showered in champagne – which she took with lots of humour.

The Birdcage 2019
When you are a VRC member you have access to the Birdcage. Make sure you walk past the different marquees which give you beautiful photo opportunities and instagrammable spots even on the outside at the facades of the enclosures. Don’t worry when you are not a guest of one of the marquees; there are lots of open spaces and activations for members to enjoy in the Birdcage.
