TWO days of top class polo are returning to Hylands House...and this time legendary disco-soul band Earth, Wind and Fire are going to be there too!
Following on from last year’s hugely successful event, which mixes polo with a fun-filled festival atmosphere for all the family, Dukes Polo will take place on Saturday, July 12 and Sunday, July 13 this year.
The 70s and 80s soul band, whose hits include Let’s Groove, September and Boogie Wonderland, will be joined by Al McKay.
They will perform live on stage on the Saturday night.
In addition to the treat of Earth, Wind and Fire, there will be show jumping, aerobatics, live arena display, funfair rides and some of the finest food and drink around.
All this will accompany the main polo event, which will be followed by entertainment in the evenings, when the doors to the Duke Club open and a line-up of DJs take to their decks, Colin Francis - whose album Marbella Sessions went to number one - will be among them.
The FIFA World Cup final is also on the Sunday. To celebrate, Dukes Polo is hosting a World Cup party. As the Polo ponies retire for the afternoon a team of famous footballing faces and celebrities will take to the pitch for a charity football match in support of the Rhys Daniels Trust.
The World Cup final will then be shown on a big screen.
