Can you think of any better way to spend a Saturday than watching your heroes tackle the iconic Badminton cross country course from the luxury of a lakeside pavilion with a glass of champagne in hand in the company of other like-minded galloping housewives and their friends? This galloping housewife would love to host you. Actually most of the hosting will be done by Mr. galloping housewife as the galloping housewife herself will be too busy 'oohing' and 'aahing' at all the fabulous horses and all the amazing legends tackling the ridiculous fences that seem to lurk in the depths of Eric Winter's imagination.
The galloping housewife's marquee will be open to all ticket holders from 10:30am on Saturday 9th May, in plenty of time to catch the first horse out at 11:30. Drinks and canapés will be served all day and you will be free to come and go as you please. We have seating and closed circuit TV for the rest of the course and access to VIP loos so there really is no need to go anywhere though...
We'd like to meet as many of you as possible so this invitation doesn't include general admission to the event or parking - please purchase these tickets in advance directly from the Badminton website.
If this sounds like you, then there is no catch, no prior purchase, no prize draw. This year there is a cap on the numbers we're allowed into the marquee so we've put a token £1 on the purchase just so that we know you'll turn up - skin in the game and all that. The cap does mean that numbers are strictly limited - when they're gone, they're gone. Limited to 4 tickets per purchaser.
You'll get sent a wristband and information as to how to find us at least two weeks in advance. We 'think' we know where we'll be, but the course is of course all sorts of secret squirrel at this stage. You must be wearing the wristband for access on the day.
Can't wait to see you there!
