Weddings At Hickstead!

Premier showjumping venue asks for licence to host weddings

Couples will soon be able to marry overlooking the world's best-known showjumping arena at the All England Jumping Course, Hickstead.

The showground, acknowledged as the home of British showjumping and known internationally for its meticulously-prepared International Arena, has invested in extensive refurbishment to transform the top floor of its viewing stand into luxury banqueting and function rooms

"We have also applied for a civil marriage licence so that we can host weddings and receptions, as well as meetings, conferences and private or corporate dinners," said Hickstead founder and owner Douglas Bunn.

The arena can be used to land helicopters flying in bride and groom and important guests. Work is also in hand to floodlight it at night.

Up to 240 guests can be accommodated in the new, glass-fronted suite which will be available for bookings all year round.

"It will be a unique facility," said Mr Bunn. "I think it will be something really special for couples to look back on as well as an unusual business and social venue."
