It’s that time of the year again!!!! We’ve been there last year and ABSOLUTELY loved it so this year of course we won’t miss the Chestertons Polo in the Park for anything!
Here are some pictures of last year ;).
You may think that Polo is not for you and even less for your kids, think again because you will love it. Watching Polo is actually a very good experience even for those who like me don’t have a clue of how it works. It’s a fantastic experience and visually beautiful. I still find it hard to believe how they can play on a horseback and still drive such tiny ball to score a goal.
What’s more they made Sunday a Family Day which means that they didn’t cut short on the entertainment for all the family, last year was amazing but it seems that this year will be even better and with more things to do. It’s also the “Finals Day” when the city’s teams battle it out for victory and the chance to lift the winner’s trophy in front of the crowds.
The good thing is that you can actually enjoy the match and the vibrating atmosphere knowing that your child won’t be bored, plus you can all enjoy your day together as a family, exactly what I’m always looking for.
Sharky & George will be bringing back their exceptionally popular “pitch invasion”, but with a twist. This year, with the Rio Olympic fever building, they will be offering a family Olympics session, giving parents an opportunity to unleash their competitive spirits and take to the field between 11am – 1:30pm. The session will be packed with games guaranteed to bring fun and laughter, including:
- Mega sack races
- Rocket balloon javelin
- Giant sock wrestling arena
- Squirrel tails
- Ultimate water-bomb catapulting competition
- Biggest game of musical statues ever
- 100-a-side tug of war
- Space Hopper Steeplechase
But there’s even more news!
Chestertons Polo in the Park will this year see the debut of The Great Polo Food Festival, due to reinforce its position as one of the largest and most popular polo tournaments in Europe at Hurlingham Park, Fulham from 3 – 5 June.
The Great Polo Food Festival will bring together some of London’s top restaurants and trendiest street food traders to deliver an exceptional culinary experience for spectators attending the event at what’s known as the ‘spiritual home’ of polo.
Renowned chefs such as Gordon Ramsay, Mark Hix and Scott Hallsworth will be represented, serving a range of bespoke Chestertons Polo in the Park dishes, created especially for the event. Ramsay’s maze Grill takes inspiration from the iconic Manhattan grill rooms and will be serving rare breed steaks, fish and poultry, whereas Hallsworth’s signature ‘East meets West’ Japanese cuisine will be the prominent feature at his Kurobuta pop-up. Mark Hix, frequently lauded as one of London’s most eminent restaurateurs and known for his original take on British gastronomy, will be bringing together a range of classic favourites from his HIX restaurants to add to the offering.
Tickets for the event start from just £10, which can be purchased from www.ticketmaster.co.uk. For more information, please visit Chestertons Polo in the Park website.
