Royal Longines International Horse Show 2017

Events, News Jul 28, 2017 By Seaholme

Marquee hire for another famous Sussex event, held at Hickstead since 1992 – the Longines Royal International Horse Show.

This, the official show of The British Horse Society, is now in its 109th year and features hundreds of international showjumping classes plus carriage driving, scurry driving, side-saddle classes and – “one of the highlights of the Sussex social calendar” – Ladies Day at Hickstead (29th July).

The Royal Longines International Horse Show is patroned by Her Majesty The Queen and takes place from 25th to 30th July.

Saturday’s Queen Elizabeth II Cup is one of the most coveted titles in the national showjumping circuit, while Sunday’s finale is the Longines King George V Gold Cup, one of the oldest and most prestigious classes in the world.

Seaholme are providing over 200 partitioned marquees for shopping stalls at the event. The marquees consist mainly of 6m x 3m “shops” with wooden flooring, matting and branded banners, selling equestrian clobber and equipment. There are also larger marquees for bars, the food hall and hospitality tents all adding up to 2700 m2 of tentage – which is a lot!

Pictured – during morning preparations for the event – is a selection of marquees in the Charles Owen Shopping Village, with weather-resistant curtain-style marquee walls, all nestled perfectly within the picturesque outdoor venue.

Seaholme have provided marquee hire for events at Hickstead for many many years, including the Hickstead Derby, and are very proud to continue our partnership with the showground and their suppliers.
