A BRAND new international equestrian event will be taking place in the magnificent grounds of Houghton Hall, near King's Lynn, later this month and we are giving one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of VIP tickets.
The first ever Houghton International runs from Thursday, May 24 to Sunday, May 27 and its organisers are well known for the Easco Burnham Market World Cup Horse Trials, one of Norfolk's most popular family events that attracts thousands of visitors every April.
Equestrian action is, of course, at the heart of the four-day event, and visitors will be able to see top quality cross country, dressage and show jumping action.
As well as top class equestrian action, visitors can enjoy a perfect summer day out with attractions such as falconry displays, terrier racing, the Robinsons Mercedes-Benz Driving Challenge, a food court, licensed all-day bar, a shopping village and loads of children's activities.
