Combining all the best parts of polo and fine dining but for a charitable cause, what more could you want from a day out in Gloucestershire this September?
Hospitality Action

This September 6th will mark the sixth annual polo day event, taking place at the Beaufort Polo Club, with the help from the team at Calcot Kitchens. Hospitality Action is the culinary trade charity offering a crucial lifeline to people of all ages, working and retired, from the hospitality industry.

So in perfect keeping with this they will deliver this fantastic annual fundraising day that includes; a three-course lunch prepared and served by the team from Calcot Kitchens and a staggering six Michelin-starred South West chefs – Martin Burge of Whatley Manor, Richard Davies of The Manor House, Josh Eggleton of The Pony & Trap, Hywel Jones of Lucknam Park, Sam Moody of The Bath Priory and Richard Picard-Edwards of Lords of the Manor.

Aspiring individuals from the hospitality industry will also get the chance to further their training and help to support the chefs taking part in the event. The next generation of young trainees have all volunteered from; City of Bath College, Gloucestershire College, City of Bristol College and Hit Training Academy and will showcase the great work that the charity does to support its cause.

Event sponsor Gary Tombs, Head of Business for Tetbury Audi says:

“This is the third year in a row we have sponsored the Hospitality Action Polo Day and we are delighted to do so again. Everything about the day is top-notch, from the delicious food prepared by some of the industry’s top names, right through to the polo itself and the Final of the prestigious Solitaire Salver. We are overjoyed that the Polo Day continues to go from strength to strength and are already looking forward to 6th September!”

The event will open with a Moët & Chandon Champagne and canapé reception on the lawns of the prestigious Beaufort Polo Club, before a three-course lunch is prepared by the chefs. For all those polo aficionados who may be worried that with all the gourmet treats on offer they will miss out on the sporting action, fear not! Grandstand seats will be reserved for guests to watch the final of the 4 goal Solitaire Salver prior to ending the day with an afternoon cream tea served in the marquee.

This event is set to be the best yet as the usual three chefs has doubled to six, allowing two chefs per course. With a total of seven Michelin stars between them guests are in for a real gastronomic feast…and all for a good cause!
