Save the date for a summer of fun at Dallas Burston Polo Club


Get ready to saddle up for another impressive year of elegant equestrian events as the ‘sport of kings’ rides back into Southam.

Dallas Burston Polo Club has unveiled its packed programme of glamorous games for 2018 – including three of the biggest fixtures in its social calendar.

One of the most sophisticated events of the polo season will kick-start this year’s line-up, with the return of the ever-popular Ladies Day, held in association with Live 24-Seven.

Taking place on Saturday, June 9th, women from across the region will dress up in all their finery to compete in the style stakes for the seventh annual Ladies Day.

As well as showcasing the very best in fashion, the day will be filled with tournaments and matches as well as first-rate entertainment and a charity auction.

This prestigious fixture will be followed by one of the finest sporting and social events held annually at the club – the Fine & Country Polo Day.

More than just a day of high octane polo, the day presents a great opportunity for family and friends to spend quality time together browsing the shopping village, enjoying fine food or even indulging in a picnic on the lawns.

This family favourite takes place on Saturday, July 7th, and features an array of activities and entertainment for visitors of all ages.

Last year, the 600-acre site was lined with a range of exhibitors which included the impressive expertise of the Honesberie Shooting School. Car enthusiasts also had the chance to indulge in their passion with a dazzling array of classic cars on show – including La Ferrari, Lamborghini and even James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5.

This year’s summer season will draw to a close with the prestigious Polo in the Park – an event which is growing in size year-on-year.

On Sunday, September 2nd, visitors can enjoy a day of family-friendly entertainment with everything from jousting demonstrations, fairground rides and even an enviable display of vintage cars.

Major Richard Carney MBE said: “We are thrilled to once again welcome these popular summer-time fixtures back to Dallas Burston Polo Club. Every year, our visitor numbers grow as the events become more popular and we believe this year will be no exception.

“Not only can visitors enjoy some first-rate polo matches, they will have the chance to immerse themselves in the glamour and sophistication of the sport of kings, or treat the family to a day out with entertainment for all ages.

“We look forward to welcoming visitors, old and new, to Dallas Burston Polo Club for another incredible year of equestrian events.”
