The day at the magnificent Kurland estate is an annual event and typically well organized to provide entertainment for the large crowd. It has something on offer for everyone and is a wonderful family day out.

This year there was an array of new spectator facilities; first the very trendy dedicated ‘gin bar’ positioned right next to the new After-Party tent. A delicious selection of gourmet food trucks were on hand to take care of all the spectators’ hunger needs. Those that came to picnic or to use the grandstand also were able to enjoy a drink or two from the new east bank bar.
