The Evening Performance kicks off at 7pm with the €75,000 Liverpool International Grand Prix, showcasing some of the world’s best horses and riders, all with their eye firmly set on winning the top prize of the show. The fences will be set at a staggering 1.60m high, and riders will also be competing for much sought after Longines World Ranking points.
The current dual Liverpool International Grand Prix champion, Irishman Billy Twomey, will be back to defend his title this year, having won the prestigious class in both 2016 and 2017 with his seasoned campaigner Diaghilev.
Spectators will then be treated to the amazing spectacle of the Arenacross UK Freestyle Motocross crew, performing gravity defying stunts against a backdrop of pyro, along with crowd favourites the Shetland Pony Grand National.
Gilles Fortier and his dramatic team of stunt riders and horses will be delivering a world premier of his new ‘Phoenix’ act, showcasing an emotive collection of equestrian art, acrobatics and fire performers.
There’s more equestrian action with the ‘Battle of the Sexes’ Knockout, involving riders racing against each other over two sets of mirror image fences. This nail biting class promises to be the fastest and most furious show jumping you will see all weekend.
Finally we will be joined by world renowned party rock specialist Rick Parfitt Jr, and the RPJ band who will be ramping up the atmosphere as we get closer to midnight and counting down to a spectacular show with indoor fireworks and lots of surprises as the clock strikes 12!
