At Hurtwood Park Polo Club we’re proud to be teaming up with Prostate Cancer UK to bring you a totally unique event – one that combines pukka ponies with the ultimate in high-end horsepower. Our Rock ‘n’ Horsepower event in aid of this fantastic cause will offer all the excitement and spectacle of Polo, plus the chance to eyeball a jaw dropping array of high performance supercars. And all topped off by an awesome evening concert featuring Kenney Jones and some very special friends.
Enjoy all things bold and beautiful? Then you’ll love the connoisseur cars we’ve lined up. At last year’s event we set a new world record by bringing together over 300 of Ferrari’s Pininfarina-designed masterpieces. Among the cars on display were a 275 GTB Spider, a 250 GT SWB, a 365 Daytona and many more recent Ferrari models including the 360 Modena and the 458 Spider.
It’s not just about supercars though. You’ll also have the super thrills of a top-class Polo match – something simply unequalled among equestrian sports – at an event that’s guaranteed to attract a stellar crowd of celebrities, patrons and world class players to Hurtwood.

Prostate Cancer UK is the leading UK charity supporting men with prostate cancer and prostate disease.
Prostate cancer kills over 10,000 men every year in the UK and each year almost as many men are diagnosed with prostate cancer as women are diagnosed with breast cancer. But research into prostate cancer is badly underfunded, leaving tests and treatments trailing behind other common cancers. And the quality and availability of treatment and care can vary depending on where men live. Men’s health has been low on the agenda for far too long, so it’s time for men to band together against the injustices of prostate cancer.
They are building Men United, a growing team across the UK, to get the message out there about one of the UK’s biggest man killers, support men affected by it, and raise money to find more reliable tests and treatments for the future.
Prostate Cancer UK (formerly known as The Prostate Cancer Charity) is a registered charity in England and Wales (1005541) and in Scotland (SC039332). Registered company number 2653887.
