What's On - Events & Sport
In only the second home fixture of their new County Championship 2 campaign, Durham CCC will take on a Gloucestershire side that enjoyed a strong season last year, finishing three places ahead of their North East rivals. But a new season means a fresh slate; will Durham claim the spoils this time around?
As well as their state-of-the-art showjumping and dressage arenas, the undulating parkland of Belsay Estate provides a perfect cross-country course for these popular trials. There’ll be a good mix of natural obstacles and fences, as well as two water complexes to keep riders on their toes (or hooves) and spectators on the edge of their seats.
The most famous race meeting of the year at Newcastle, the Northumberland Plate is a two-mile heritage handicap worth £150,000 – making it the richest two-mile handicap in Europe. Live after the racing, iconic British Ska band Madness will be performing a full set, including many of their 15 Top 10 UK singles, to round the festival off in style. Definitely promises to be One Step Beyond your usual race day.
