SPECIAL OFFER: General Admission Tickets To The Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby Meeting

We’ve got a special offer for general admission tickets for all of our Hidden members to this internationally renowned event on either Friday 21 or Saturday 22 June - RSVP on our ticket page and we'll send you a QR code for entry for TWO people!

Please note there will be a £15 charge for parking per vehicle.

First held in 1961, the Hickstead Derby is one of the most historic and popular classes in showjumping - expect thrills and spills as this year’s competitors tackle the fearsome course, which includes the 10ft 6in slope of the Derby Bank, the notoriously difficult Devil’s Dyke combination, and one of the widest water jumps in the world.

There is nothing else quite like the spectacle of the country’s top horses and riders competing in Hickstead’s iconic classes, which also include the exciting British Speed Derby and the Agria Derby Trial, in which riders must qualify for the Al Shira’aa Derby itself.

Hickstead has everything an equestrian fan could wish for, and there’s plenty on offer for those just looking for a lovely day out in the Sussex countryside, including a large shopping village, a choice of bars and restaurants, and a family mini funfair.

We're now very pleased to have once again teamed up with Hickstead to offer our Hidden members for any TWO adults or over 15 year olds to attend on either Friday 21 or Saturday 22 June.

To get your tickets, just make sure you're signed up to our free membership club Hidden County - you can then RSVP on our ticket page via the Hidden website, along with full terms and conditions!
