)-- Bolesworth will be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in style hosting "A Great British Show" with a number of fabulous British attractions for all the family to enjoy from Friday 1st – Monday 4th June.
Set in the magnificent setting of Bolesworth Estate near Tattenhall in Cheshire, these will include helicopter flights over the showground, vintage car displays, zip wires across the lake, dog agility classes, fine foods and a huge shopping village.
Bolesworth will be celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee with a Jubilee lunch and traditional jubilee games on the Sunday afternoon followed by a Jubilee Concert on the Sunday evening in partnership with Tattenhall Music Society.
In addition, there is top level show jumping each day with the possibility of seeing members of The Great British team for the final time ahead of the London Olympics.
The Bolesworth Showjumping Classic, heading into its 5th year, is the brainchild of Nina Barbour who helps to the run the Bolesworth Estate, including the Harthill Stud and Townend Online.
Nina Barbour said: “The Queen’s Jubilee has given us the opportunity to make the 2012 Bolesworth Classic a really special occasion. We are combining top-class equestrian sport with music and entertainment for families who wish to enjoy a great day out.”
Last year, 18,000 spectators attended the Bolesworth Classic, and watched some of the world’s top showjumping and event riders compete for a prize fund of nearly £60,000, with John Whitaker winning the Bolesworth Classic Grand Prix.
The Bolesworth Classic also hosted a qualifying round for Express Eventing, a new short form of equestrian eventing in which all 3 events take place in one arena on one day. The overall winner of the Bolesworth qualifier was Matthew Wright who went on to win in the final at The Horse of the Year Show.
