Fairfax & Favor Guide to Summer Events -

10-year anniversary Edition

For some, summer is marked by the lighter nights and warmer weather, and if you are familiar with the up and down, somewhat spirited weather of Britain – this on its own is something to look forward to. However, for others, the start of the summer marks something else…it is a time get outside and truly celebrate the Great British countryside. Luckily for you, we can think of a few places to do this in style.

If you have been here for a few years now, then you will be familiar with our events and where you can expect to see us. However, this year is slightly different for us…for many reasons but we will get to that a bit later. This year we don’t want to just tell you what you already know or what you can expect to see from us, we want to tell you what we have learnt over the past decade and how this year we have learnt from you! You heard us right, we have watched and listened, and we have stepped up the game this year and that is because of all of you, our loyal customers.

The first, and perhaps most important thing that we have learnt this year, is how much style means to our customers and this is ever so prominent at events where we exhibit. At events like the Cheltenham Festival, the Badminton Horse Trials, the Game Fair and of course the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials (to mention a few), you always turn out in style and for many, in Fairfax & Favor.

You may ask what links a fashion brand with say a 5-star event or a country show, and we would say… we are glad you asked. Because we believe that here at Fairfax & Favor we are pioneering ‘rural vogue’- we are at the very forefront of luxury British fashion, and we want to let you into a little secret…we are just getting started!

Badminton Horse Trials

When: 4th - 8th May 2023

Will we be attending?: Yes!

We have exhibited at the Badminton Horse Trials for a number of years now, but we have not exhibited like this before! Expect a bigger stand, exquisite hospitality, and - finally - a few new releases that may be just a little more special than usual. Let’s just say that we ran with the expression ‘experience’ in more ways than one!

Going back to why this year, or more specifically why the weekend of the Badminton Horse Trials is a little different for us this year. The weekend, or Sunday the 7th of May to be exact, marks the official 10-year anniversary of Fairfax & Favor…Yes, you read that correctly – a whole decade of Fairfax & Favor!

And because we like to celebrate in style, we are also proud to announce that for the first time ever, we are also proud sponsors of the official lakeside area at this year’s Badminton Horse Trials! We told you that we were doing things a little differently this year…

We don’t want to give away too much, however, we can assure you, or lets say encourage you, not to bypass our stand at this year’s event.

The Game Fair

When: 28th - 30th July 2023

Will we be attending?: Yes!

From a 5- star event to an unmissable country show. This 'Festival of the Countryside' is the perfect annual event for anyone with a passion for countryside pursuits, whats even better is that it takes place in the peak of Summer. The Game Fair is monumental for us in more ways than one. The Game Fair to date has been the show which has allowed us to exceed expectations and stretch those signature flags of ours!

At last year’s show we constructed the biggest stand to date, bigger then ever before! However, as we have alluded too, we want to learn from you! Having said this, we learnt that we need even more space, even more products and without a doubt even more gin! We hope we won’t disappoint at this year’s 2023 Game Fair.

The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials

When: 31st August - 3rd September 2023.

Will we be attending?: Yes!

Finishing with the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, this 5-star event is renown as one of the toughest and most competitive events of the year. Last year we welcomed a lot of you onto our stand and to celebrate, we created a limited-edition collection that we believe embodied the classical and timeless nature of The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials.

This year, we want to make it even better...anyone notice a theme yet? Last year, was the first year that we exhibited outside at the Burghley Horse Trials. This was a massive achievement for us and allowed you to have the extra space needed to secure a blue box or two! This year, we want to do the same, with perhaps a few added additions...you only turn 10 once after all! We look forward to welcoming you back to our stand at this year's 2023 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials.
