Press accreditation

All members of the press who would like to attend the Al Shira'aa Hickstead Derby Meeting and the Longines Royal International Horse Show should apply for press accreditation at least two weeks in advance of each fixture. 

Press accreditation applications for the Longines Royal International Horse Show close on Monday 17 July. 

Passes will not be required for the Hurstpierpoint College National Schools and Pony Club Jumping Championships or the All England Jumping Championships, but we would be grateful if you could email our Press Officer if you would like to attend.

To be added to the Hickstead press release mailing list, email victoria@victoriaspicer.co.uk with the subject line 'subscribe'.

If you want to attend the dressage competition at our sister venue, you must apply separately at Dressage at Hickstead. This form will only give you access to the All England Jumping Course.

Terms and conditions

  • Press accreditation is open to working members of the press only. Marketing and advertising staff and those working for blogs/social media pages only will not be given a press pass.
  • Once we receive your application, you will only hear back from us if there is a problem with your application. If you have not received your passes within two weeks of the show, please email press@hickstead.co.uk to check we have received your application form.
  • You will receive electronic passes by email, including an access ticket and a parking pass. These will only work for the first day of attendance, so on arrival you should head to the press office to sign in and collect passes.
  • Tea and coffee will be provided in the press room, while lunch vouchers will be available for accredited media for use in the Polo Clubhouse or other mobile catering units (vouchers to be collected each day in the press office). Please note this will not apply to the artisan food outlets in the food hall.
  • Press viewing seats for working journalists only are reserved in the Members’ Grandstand. We cannot allow family, friends, children or dogs in any of the media areas.
  • Please send us any press cuttings, web links or PDF cuttings from the season to press@hickstead.co.uk
  • Photographers must not canvas riders, owners or the general public in order to sell photographs taken at the show.
  • Accredited media should be supplying images for editorial purposes only, and those uploading entire albums of Hickstead images online and making them available to the public – including tagging riders on Facebook, etc - will have their accreditation revoked.
  • Accreditation does not automatically ensure that a photographer will be admitted to work in the International Arena. Only those given an official photographer’s bib will be allowed into the main ring (£5 deposit required). There is not a strict dress code but we do request that photographers do not wear shorts or scruffy jeans.
  • No filming is allowed anywhere in the International Arena. Film crews who wish to film the outer rings must report to the press office to sign in. A television/radio interview area will be set up in the press pod next to the press office and interviews must be set up via the press office staff.
  • A daily round up will be sent out each evening of the shows, and results from all showjumping and showing classes will be posted on the Hickstead website (www.hickstead.co.uk). 
  • Accreditation letters are non-transferable

Please note that all sections must be correctly filled in or the form will not submit. You will receive a confirmation message once the form has been sent.
