Nic Roldan’s annual UK Sunset Polo at Cowdray

Top American Polo Player Nic Roldan will be holding his second annual UK Sunset Polo event at the ancestral home of British Polo, Cowdray House in West Sussex on Tuesday June 19 2018.

The event will take place on a Midsummer’s afternoon on the old polo field known as the House Ground at Cowdray House, providing a magical setting. Roldan aims to make it an event to remember, and of course to continue on his mission to raise awareness and funds for both Chestnut Tree House (Registered Charity No. 256789) for whom he is a birthday patron, and for Coach Core (Coach Core is a programme delivered by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke of Sussex. Registered charity no. ‍1132048).

Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for East and West Sussex, Brighton and Hove and South East Hampshire and cares for 300 children and young adults from 0-19 years of age with progressive life-shortening conditions. The Coach Core apprenticeship scheme gives young people aged 16-24 the chance to become the next generation of inspirational coaches.

The event partners include CowdrayThe Lickfold InnJeep UK and Tregothnan, the pioneers of growing tea in the UK, with whom Nic has developed the “Sunset Polo” tea blend, plus The Spread Eagle Hotel & Spa and many other local businesses.

In order to make the occasion as welcoming as possible to the local community, general admittance tickets will be available with 50% off for children under 12 years of age. A new picnic area has been created and a food village with prime viewing for all to enjoy.  Whilst Afternoon Tea tickets give access to the event and complimentary tea adjacent to the demonstrations.

Equestrian displays of the highest calibre, world class food, a magical venue on a British Midsummer’s night and all for two great causes. This is one date that must not be missed in your summer plans and Nick very much looks forward to welcoming everyone on June 19.
