Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby 2017 – new sponsor, same Marquee Hire supplier!

Events, News, Reviews Jun 22, 2017 By David Coleman

Seaholme Marquees are very proud to have provided marquee hire for events at Hickstead for 18 years.

The annual Hickstead Derby is one of the most famous showjumping events in the world, with a challenging course that has barely changed in five decades.

No other event in the world asks this much of its entrants, and no other course creates this type of drama.

The Sussex-based show is best known for its international classes – featuring some of the best horses and riders in the world – yet there are showjumping classes for every calibre of rider and plentiful alternative entertainment for equestrian fans, including the traditional Celebrity Polo Match.

This year’s Hickstead Derby runs from 22th to 25th June and is the first event sponsored by Al Shira’aa.

The Seaholme team have had a busy week setting up hundreds of metres of “shedding tents” (marquees) for the Charles Owen shopping village, selling all manner of equestrian merchandise. The 3, 6 & 9m wide partitioned marquees offer each seller a sizable outlet for the duration of the event, with exterior signage and weather protection in the form of “roll-up” marquee walls.

We have also erected several lavishly furnished VIP hospitality tents.

Pictured is the VIP reception with comfortable sofas and entrance to the hospitality area, all decorated with lush marquee linings in white and gold, wooden flooring and carpet and beautiful exotic flowers to ensure all VIP visitors feel special from the moment they arrive!

Working in partnership with Hickstead for so many years, the Seaholme Marquees team are a “well-oiled machine” when it comes to setting up events at the West Sussex showground. We also provide an on-site team for the duration of the event for any marquee maintenance requirements.
