Eight top chefs will come together at the Beaufort Polo Club on Gloucestershire on Sunday 3 September for Hospitality Action’s South West Polo Day.

Hywel Jones of Lucknam Park, Rob Potter of The Manor House, Elly Wentworth of The Angel, Richard Davies of Calcot & Spa, Chris Cleghorn of The Olive Tree, Ricki Weston of Whatley Manor Hotel & Spa and Martin Blake and Michael Topp of The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa will be cooking at the event, which returns on 3 September after a four-year hiatus.

Each chef will contribute towards a three-course meal, with two chefs taking on the same course to provide a twist to the day’s service.

Grandstand seats will be reserved for guests to watch the polo before the day ends with an afternoon cream tea prepared by Blake and Topp. Guests will also have the chance to join the prize draw and auctions to get their hands on experiences and overnight stays, with all proceeds being donated to Hospitality Action.

The event will be Hospitality Action’s twelfth South West Polo Day, which was last held pre-pandemic in September 2019.

The funds raised will be distributed to those in the hospitality industry on the brink of poverty or suffering from poor mental health due to the skyrocketing cost of living crisis. So far this year Hospitality Action says its has seen a 12% increase in applications received compared to the corresponding period in 2022 and a 67% increase on the same period in 2021.

“Since 2009 the Polo Day has been the crowning glory of our events programme. We are thrilled to return to Beaufort Polo Club after so long, and we expect the event to sell out in record time,” says Mark Lewis, chief executive of Hospitality Action.

“The day is a real team effort and brings together the best of South West hospitality. I am extremely grateful to all those who have lent a hand and consistently make the Polo such a tremendous success. Needless to say, we are all very much looking forward to September 3rd​”.
Tickets for the Polo Day at Beaufort Polo Club cost £130 per person or £1,300 for a table of 10 and are available from the Hospitality Action website.
