It is regarded highly for its innovative format and provides the perfect introduction for those less well-acquainted with the sport.

2013 Features
We are delighted to announce a range of off-field features, entertainment and hospitality areas. Some are brand new additions to the event and others are the welcome return of favourites from previous years.

Gourmet Food Court
The Gourmet Food Court is a new pitch-side addition which offers an abundance of fresh produce from Britain and abroad. Providing variety and great value food, the Gourmet Food Court gives you the opportunity to sample some of the finest fresh produce and delicious summer party favourites throughout the three-day event.

The Pommery Champagne Garden
The Pommery Champagne Garden gives spectators first-class service and spectacular views of the polo. Relax on the deck chairs, challenge your friends to a game of table football or simply sit back in the salubrious surroundings and sip on a glass of vintage Pommery.

Stella Artois Continental Garden
Stella Artois has become our Official Beer Partner for 2013 and will bring their brand’s cultural heritage and continental elegance to the sidelines of MINT Polo in the Park. Sample their growing range of premium lager and cider in the sophisticated, salubrious surroundings. The Stella Artois bar will provide the ‘perfect pour’, which means you will enjoy your beer exactly as it should be.

The Polonesia Tiki Bar
Back by popular demand, our ‘Tiki’ themed bar has been enlarged and sits proudly alongside the hospitality enclosures. The popular cocktail menu mixes the traditional with the more adventurous and the pitch-side location means you won’t miss a thing.

Crown & Corgi Pub
A proper British pub is clearly an important addition to such a quintessentially British sporting and social event. The Crown & Corgi provides a fantastic vantage point from which to get close to the on-field action. In addition the bar has been extended from last year so that you can spend less time ordering drinks and more time enjoying them.

The PIMM’S Bus
The iconic double decker bus will provide the centre piece of the white picket fenced PIMM’s garden. Their expert mixologists provide you with possibly the most revered and established summer party beverage, which no British social occasion would be complete without. Recline on the deck chairs and soak up the very best of British.

Luxury Shopping Village
Featuring over 40 exhibitors selling a wide range of quality products, the Luxury Shopping Village is a wonderful showcase of products you might not find on the high street. From hats to Argentine leather goods and bespoke jewellery to exquisite works of art and some of the finest accessories for town and country, our retailers are ready to help you find that extra special souvenir of your day.

Club Med Kids’ Zone
As the leading family travel organiser, Club Med have joined us to ensure all members of the family are kept entertained at MINT Polo in the Park. Our extended and improved Kids’ Zone reflects a truly family-friendly event which caters for parents and children alike. The secure, supervised area will feature soft play, face painting, ball pools, competitions and music. The Club Med Kids’ Zone means that you can bring the entire family for a great day out with us.

Finals Day (Sun 9th June)
In addition to the weekend-long Club Med Kids’ Zone, Sunday 9th June will see not only the mounting tension of the polo as the teams progress towards the final, but also a range of on-field entertainment between matches catering for children of all ages. In addition to this, exclusively on Finals Day we will be running a range of on-field activities especially for children. These activities will be free and will run from Midday until 1.45pm offering a great start to any child’s day out. On-field activities will include a giant inflatable slide, relay races, British Bulldog and dodgeball run by our partner charity, Walking With The Wounded. We will also have children’s entertainers circulating within the crowd throughout the day, providing the ultimate family experience.

Charity Work
MINT Polo in the Park is delighted to announce that Walking with the Wounded will return as the official charity partner for MINT Polo in the Park 2013. Walking with the Wounded raises money to fund the training of wounded service personnel so that they are equipped with the skills and qualifications required to find long-term employment and create secure futures for themselves and their families. Later this year Walking With The Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge 2013 will see teams of wounded servicemen and women from the four corners of the globe race across the Antarctic.
