“We’re delighted to add this extra reason to book at Barbury this year, “says Peter McNeile.

“Bailey Robinson is exactly the sort of local company we have been seeking to attract to Barbury to engage with the substantial audience attending the event. Since we opened the Box Office, sales have been flowing well, and there’s a clear appetite for the top flight international sport that is a given at Barbury every year. This creative partnership can only help us accelerate Barbury’s appeal.”

Rory Pilkington, managing director for Bailey Robinson, added, “Barbury is a unique event in the equestrian calendar, crossing the divide between Eventing and horseracing and reaching a very desirable demographic in Wiltshire and surrounding counties. We can see great scope in presenting ourselves to this clientele, and we’re delighted to add value to all spectators at Barbury through this fabulous holiday.”
