Even though the big event is a few months away, there is still plenty of news coming from Badminton and we have a roundup of the highlights…

160,000 fans make their way to the estate every year and tickets have already gone on sale. The Priority Box Office opened on January 3rd, while the Main Box Office opened on January 10th. So, make sure you get your tickets as soon as possible!

This year there will be more shops and food outlets than ever before. Among the 500 plus outlets will be a new World of Food and Wine.

The organisers of the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials 2018 have a new host in the recently acceded 12th Duke of Beaufort, Harry Somerset. Harry has always taken an active role in the Event and knows many of the team, who are very grateful for the estate’s continued support.

Eric Winter is designing this year’s cross country course after a successful debut last year. Much of the earthworks were completed before Christmas and progress is going well.
