Fine & Country Warwickshire Gold Cup 2019
Set in the beautiful surrounds of our Stoneythorpe Estate, the Fine & Country Warwickshire Gold Cup returns to Dallas Burston next month for its eleventh consecutive year.
Sunday 7th July will see crowds gather for the much-anticipated equestrian event. Last year’s fixture – the tournament’s tenth anniversary – was a brilliant celebration of its success thus far, and we’re sure that 2019’s instalment will be the biggest and best Gold Cup yet.
Everyone is welcome!
What to expect at the Fine & Country Warwickshire Gold Cup
Founded in 2008 by the director of Fine & Country, Sean Newman, the polo tournament was established as a way to make the sport more accessible to the general public, and in the past ten years it has certainly achieved this mission. As always, the occasion this year will feature an exhilarating all-day polo tournament, played out by inspiring polo players from near and far, across our two premier polo grounds.
Polo and Much More
But the day is not only about the polo. The yearly event is a not-to-be-missed day out for friends and family of all ages and interests. Alongside the horses the picturesque grounds are awash with exhibitors offering gift items, activities and delicious refreshments. The onsite gastro-pub The Millstone Hare will also be open for Sunday lunches and summertime drinks, and guests are welcome to bring their own picnics to enjoy while watching the action unfold on the fields.
While entrance and spectating is free – making the event even more accessible to all – there are Picnic Packages and VIP tickets also available to those who want to really make the occasion a day to remember. Included in the VIP ticket is an exquisite three-course lunch, unbeatable views over the pitch, and a brilliant live band. More information and tickets can be found here.
Fine & Country Foundation
All proceeds from the event will go to the Fine & Country Foundation. Established by Malcolm Lindley in 2014, the Foundation works with charities and organisations in the UK and overseas to fight homelessness, a cause close to the heart of the global estate agency. Through organising fundraisers and
events such as the Warwickshire Gold Cup – the largest event on their calendar – the Foundation is able to fund charities and projects who need it most, because everyone deserves a place to call home. In the five
years since its inception the Foundation has raised over £350,000, enabling real change for those who find themselves without a home.
