Support Prostate Cancer UK and help us raise more awareness for this fantastic cause.
Hurtwood Park Polo Club is proud to once again be teaming up with this fantastic charity to create a totally unique event where horsepower meets pony power. The day will offer the traditional properties of polo with the added benefit of a high array of high performance super cars on display followed by a spectacular evening concert featuring Kenney Jones and some very special friends. Last year saw Kenney join forces with The Who and showcased a number of high class performers including Jeff Beck, Mick Hucknall, Mike Rutherford, Procol Harum, Alvin Stardust, John Lodge and a host of others supporting the cause.
This years event will take place on Saturday 13th June 2015, Rock ‘n’ Horsepower will be a day for the whole family. Not only is their a large array of motors on display, there will also be a host of children’s activities to keep the kids amused and for the ladies some retail therapy will truly enhance this grand day out.
No food or drink is allowed in the main arena but there is nothing to stop you from picnicking near your car. It is more for health and safety reasons and is not an unusual request for such a large event. Our smaller events allow safe patrolling but this size event is much more difficult, apart from the rubbish that is left behind on the main polo ground. We were advised to change the format as one we would normally run for a smaller event. We are very sorry about this but we need to adhere to rules for an event of this size. You can bring water and soft drinks but no alcohol into the arena. No glass is allowed anywhere on site. Please decant any soft drinks into plastic containers. But don’t worry we have lots of great food units and bars to purchase from There will be free drinking water from standpipes or bowsers. You can also purchase water from most of the catering units. Food and drinks stands will be strategically placed making the shopping village the place to be seen when having a break from watching the polo or for those simply wanting to put their feet up. Enjoy being up close to the thrill and speed of the action with your friends and family. The traditional atmosphere of polo achieves a perfect balance between spectating and socialising. Please note premier parking is not affected by the food and drink changes.
This year Rock N Horsepower is joined by pop up playground RIOT BAR. This roving, luxury experience bar will be making its first appearance of the summer at the polo bringing their hand crafted furniture and giant bean bags and lounging hammocks.
We have also created partnerships with some excellent food and eating areas including Bretts Burgers, Pizza Galore, The Hog Shed, Strawberries & Cream, Rock ‘n’ Roll Diner, Seafood Bar and The Great British Grill.
Prostate Cancer UK is the leading UK charity supporting men with prostate cancer and prostate disease.
Prostate cancer kills over 10,000 men every year in the UK and each year almost as many men are diagnosed with prostate cancer as women are diagnosed with breast cancer. But research into prostate cancer is badly underfunded, leaving tests and treatments trailing behind other common cancers. And the quality and availability of treatment and care can vary depending on where men live. Men’s health has been low on the agenda for far too long, so it’s time for men to band together against the injustices of prostate cancer.
They are building Men United, a growing team across the UK, to get the message out there about one of theUK’s biggest man killers, support men affected by it, and raise money to fine more reliable tests and treatments for the future.
