Horse of the Year Show 2020 hotel bookings

We can confirm, with great regret, that we have had no alternative but to announce the cancellation of Horse of the Year Show 2020 due to the ongoing impact of coronavirus outbreak.  We look forward to staging the 72nd edition of the event from Wednesday 6th – Sunday 10th October 2021, at the NEC Birmingham.

All hotel accommodation purchased directly through us (Grandstand Media Limited), either online at or over the phone, will be refunded. An email with specific details regarding the hotel that you have purchased including: Hilton Metropole NEC, Ibis Styles NEC, Moxy Birmingham NEC, Hilton Garden Inn (Birmingham Airport), Crowne Plaza NEC, Arden Hotel and Leisure Club, Genting Hotel will be sent out in due course.

Our team will be working hard to process refund requests as quickly as possible, but we ask for your patience and support should there be a slight delay due to reduced staff numbers and home working.

You will be supporting the future of Horse of the Year Show massively by attending next year’s event, which promises to be a fantastic showcase of equestrian competition and entertainment.

You can find answers to a lot of questions regarding the cancellation of the 2020 show on our FAQ page.
