The Lycetts Festival of Hunting 2019

Lycetts will once be the title sponsor for the Festival of Hunting for the second year running having commenced our association with this event in 2016, which will take place on Wednesday 17th July 2019 at the East of England Showground, Peterborough. This is the fourth year of our five-year partnership agreement with the festival.

The Lycetts Festival of Hunting day includes the Peterborough Royal Foxhound Show which celebrates its 131stth anniversary this year. The historic event is an annual showcase for the world of hunting and boasts the greatest gathering of hounds in the country and marks the highlight of the summer social calendar.

As ever, the Lycetts Festival of Hunting will play host to a vibrant variety of showing classes with in-hand and ridden equine classes and qualifiers for the Horse of the Year Show in many categories, as well as the much-loved inter-hunt relays. Harriers, Beagles, Basset Hounds, Draghounds, and Bloodhounds will also be competing alongside displays of Fell Hounds and coursing dogs. The Lycetts Festival of Hunting Horn Blowing competition will take place yet again at our drinks reception, with guests hoping to win the sought-after hunting horn, engraved and donated by The Hunting Shop.

The Lycetts Festival of Hunting is a wonderful opportunity for those in the hunting community to renew old acquaintances and visit some of the specialist exhibitors; from clothing and accessories to interiors, gifts and purveyors of the finest food and drink. Lycetts has a showcase stand at the Festival to discuss their bespoke insurance requirements.

Angus Keate, Deputy Chairman of Lycetts, says: ‘Our headline sponsorship of the Festival of Hunting continues to sit at the heart of Lycetts’ philosophy to work with those involved in the rural community and the Lycetts Festival of Hunting organisers are one of a number of well-known rural organisations with whom we have a close relationship. We aim to be the most trusted specialist adviser in this sector for those requiring our insurance broking and financial advisory expertise and support of events such as this is a key part of our strategy.

‘Agreeing our title sponsorship of the Lycetts Festival of Hunting for a further three years affirms our unwavering commitment to this event and the rural community in which it sits, and we hope this will not go unnoticed by those involved in hunting during these challenging times. I am delighted to lead our headline sponsorship of this event and look forward to welcoming friends old and new to

If Mr Jorrocks were to come out for a day’s hunting in 2017 he would see much that he recognised from the nineteenth century.

Equine insurance for Hunters

January 24, 2017

Accidents happen. We know they do, especially where horses are involved. We also know that, unlike a car, insuring a horse is a personal choice and that much of the time the decision is based on value. An intermediate level eventer, for example, is worth a lot of money and will only be able to perform at this level if it is in peak...
