The Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby
Around 45,000 spectators are expected to flock to the West Sussex showground in June, with visitor numbers peaking during the famous Al Shira’aa Derby on the Sunday afternoon. The Derby course is fearsomely tricky, with iconic obstacles such as the Derby Bank, the Devil’s Dyke and the double of water ditches guaranteeing plenty of thrills and spills for spectators.
But as well as the eight busy rings of equestrian action, there are more than 100 stands in the Shopping Village, giving shoppers the chance to browse many of the leading countryside brands. There is free general admission on the Thursday of the show, to encourage people to come along to experience the fabulous shopping for themselves.
Look forward to meeting you there.
