The Hickstead App

  • galleryImage

After a hugely successful launch three years ago, the Hickstead App has already become established as the must-have accessory for any Hicksteadite. Whether it's up to date information on jumping orders for competitors at the touch of a button, or interactive shopping maps and directions to the closest champagne bar for our visitors, we have spent the Winter adding even more features to make our App truly indispensable for a day out at Hickstead. In fact there's even been reports of some serious multi tasking from some Hickstead regulars - using the App to find out exactly when they are due to compete, in order to plot how much more time they have shopping and when they can arrange to meet to celebrate/comiserate in the champagne bar afterwards!

  • The countryside goes high-tech! Already the busy groom's best friend, with its live updates and results, we've added a new feature that will allow you to select individual classes as favourites, so you can pre-select your classes and have them automatically added to your home screen, so they are literally at your finger tips whenever you open your App. Our advise is to get whoever's reserved the front seat in your lorry to pre-enter your favourites on the way to the showground, so you are good to go from the moment you arrive!
  • Shop til you drop with the help of the App! As well as the snazzy new 'favourite function', you will also find a two year archive of results and trade listings, perfect for making that purchase you didn't quite have time to last year, and have been regretting ever since. With full trade listings, that link directly to our retailers websites, the App is the perfect shopping companion, and makes searching for additional products or contacting a shop after the event a walk in the park.
  • So many scrumptious restaurants and bars, too little time! For those of you enjoying a more leisurely day out at Hickstead, you will find full details and tantalising menus for all of our restaurants and bars. Packed to the brim with great features to brighten your day, our popular interactive showground map means you can find the perfect spot for you and your friends, before you even arrive at the showground!
  • Will it be wellies or wedges? Finally, you can make the decision before you leave home, with a live local Hickstead weather broadcast right from your App. There's even an in-built map that gives you traffic updates and directions straight to our door. And what's more you can personalise the weather reports so that you know what to expect when you arrive home. The real App devotee will discover that the weather and traffic servivces work all year round, and are far more fun to use than boring old BBC Weather!
  • Win, win, win, direct from your App! We will be running regular App related prize giveaways, with some fabulous goodies up for grabs, as well as facebook photo competitions accessible direct from your App. You can even make sure your twitter fans don't miss a second of the action by tweeting direct from the App, and driving your friends at home wild with envy!
