Early Bird Ticket Prices Nearing End

Back to Article Search


Those keen to make the most of the high life at the fast-approaching 2015 Farmlands Horse of the Year Show have less than a week left until early-bird ticket prices end.

Demand has been steady for the Cross Country Corporate Hospitality VIP Area (Saturday, March 21), the Hall of Fame Dinner, featuring world-class eventer Jock Paget (Thursday, March 19), and Reunion Lunch (Friday, March 20).

Organisers Kurt Sandtmann and Greg Howie are promising the three HOY events will be special and memorable.

They have introduced a new hospitality format to the Hall of Fame Dinner. Celebrated Hawke’s Bay company Orton Catering are bringing the very of the best of the region to the plates of those attending. Accompanying the three course meal will be a selection of wine from Trinity Hill and Clearview Estate.

Renowned local radio journalist Ross Holden will interview Paget, giving an insight to his year behind, and the year ahead. One of the biggest highlights of the evening is the announcement of who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Tickets to the dinner are strictly limited to 300, with the early bird price of $135 finishing on January 30, when it will become $149.

The VIP Cross County day has also had a change around, with lunch served ringside the Land Rover Premier Arena before guests are escorted to the Waikoko Lake Island where they will enjoy the heart-stopping action with canapés and drinks.

Early bird tickets are $140 and will be $155 after January 30.

The Reunion Lunch is a chance for those who have been involved with equestrian and HOY to reminisce days gone by. And there is an extra incentive to attend the 2015 function, with one lucky person heading home with two top-of-the-line VIP tickets for Saturday’s cross country day.

Early bird tickets are $25, before rising to $35 after January 30.

Tickets for all events are available through www.ticketdirect.co.nz .
