The Magic Millions Festival of British Eventing Cancelled

Update from Event Director, Peter Phillips:

It is with great regret that we have had to cancel the Magic Millions Festival of British Eventing in August this year due to Covid-19 restrictions and other related issues.

We were simply not able to guarantee the medical cover and other key resources to ensure the safety of our competitors, volunteers, officials and estate staff which is paramount to all of us at the Festival.

We would like to thank everyone for their cooperation and understanding in bearing with us in what has been a challenging and uncertain time for all.

It was hoped that we could plan a five day competition later in the year but following lengthy discussions with British Eventing there was still uncertainty regarding the latter part of the fixtures calendar at the time this decision had to be made and there was too great a risk for us that not enough would have changed in the world to plan an alternative competition.

Bookings already taken for this year’s event will be rolled over to next year, but refunds will be made on any applications made. To apply for a ticket refund, visit here with your order number and postcode.

British Eventing CEO Jude Matthews has confirmed that qualifications for the 2020 Novice Restricted, Intermediate and Open British Eventing Championships will be carried over to the 2021 Festival of British Eventing. Combinations qualified for 2020 Novice Regional Finals will instead be able to compete in the 2021 Novice Regional Finals. All qualifications being carried over will be subject to eligibility as per the BE Handbook.

We would like to thank all our sponsors and partners in the Festival for their continuing support and look forward to welcoming everyone to the Magic Millions Festival of British Eventing 6 – 8 August 2021 (subject to confirmation from British Eventing). 

Keep safe and well.
Peter Phillips
