In recent years we've seen our favourite showjumpers have a go at gymkhana games and donkey racing - but for this year's Celebrity Derby Challenge, things will be getting a lot more competitive when Hickstead plays host to special Arena Polo match. 

Riders will be switching coloured poles for wooden mallets on Saturday night here at Hickstead, when they will get to try the fast and furious sport of Arena Polo. 

Hickstead regulars Shane Breen, Trevor Breen, David Simpson, Matt Sampson, Harriet Nuttall and Holly Smith will be among those competing for the honours in the celebrity match. 

Having watched the polo newbies have a go, you can then enjoy watching the professionals at work, when the Centtrip Wales Polo Team will play our very own Playnation Hickstead team in a high-goal challenge.

The evening will start at 6pm, with live music from some local acts. Food and drink will be available from inside the clubhouse, as well as an outdoor bar and food area selling Katsu Curry with rice.

The action in the Bunn Leisure Arena starts at 7pm, and will finish at around 9.15pm.

The event is open to everyone attending the show on Saturday 22 June. Click here for the Box Office.
