Not for nothing is horse-racing called ‘the sport of kings’, we'll be hosting Charles II over the August Bank Holiday weekend for what is sure to be the most flamboyant horse show we've hosted yet! We need friendly faces to join our cohort and help ensure everyone has a great day. You will be outdoors and in close proximity to horses, re-enactors with fantastic hats, dashing locks and excited visitors.
