Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Organisers of the Liverpool International Horse Show have confirmed that the event will be returning in 2019.
The M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool will host world class showjumping and equestrian sport from 28-31 December 2019.
A major sporting event in this city’s calendar, this will be the fifth time that the event has been hosted in Liverpool.
The four day event will see some of the finest horses and riders in the world, battling over huge fences for their share of the €200,000 prize fund. The event will host the final leg of the Eventing Grand Pix, which has qualifiers at Bolesworth International and the new Bolesworth Young Horse Championships.
France’s Gilles Fortier and his team will return to the show with their incredible stunt horses after a dazzling display in 2018. In an exclusive, they’ll be bringing their circus-inspired Electric Storm performance to the event, which combines horses, fire girls, silk artists, aerial acrobats and stunning lighting effects.
Also performing throughout this year’s show will be The Kings, featuring singer and multi-instrumentalist Mitchell Emms, who competed in the 2013 series of The Voice.
The Shetland Pony Grand National is back by popular demand. The fast and furious race has proved to be a hit, especially with younger audiences.
Alongside the action, they’ll also be more premium food and bar outlets in 2019 including a bar overlooking the warm up arena.
All tickets also give access to the shows’ shopping village from 9:00 each day, where attendees can purchase the latest high-end equestrian products and outfits.
