On Sunday 5th July and day three of the Fine & Country Big Weekend, we welcomed nearly 4,000 attendees to watch 14 teams compete for the seventh Fine & Country Gold Cup, at Dallas Burston Polo Club.
In typical British style, attendees snacked on picnics and sipped Pimms as they watched Rigby & Rigby claim the winning title.
Starting just seven years ago, with Fine & Country Newmans hosting a small barbecue at the Polo grounds, the event has grown vastly and has established itself to be a distinguished date in the F&C calendar.
Not only was this one of the largest Fine & Country polo events, but the shopping village welcomed back loyal exhibitors Graypaul Birmingham, Jacuzzi and The Little Posh Dress Company to name a few, as well as new exhibitors Quantock Clothing. Dallas Burston Polo Club also showcased the new Champagne Laurent-Perrier bar, situated on the Clubhouse terrace, which was popular amongst guests.
The event raised more more than &5,600 for the Fine & Country Foundation, with all proceeds going towards fighting homelessness.
David Lindley, Operations Manager, said, "The day was undoubtedly our best polo event yet. Guests sat on the side of the polo field enjoying homemade picnics whilst children were able to enjoy the dedicated kid's area featuring rides and games. The Honesberie Shooting School welcomed attendees to have a go at shooting and archery and the clubhouse’s Laurent-Perrier bar served Fine & Country Guests well. Thank you to all of those who attended and we look forward to seeing you again next year."
