On Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June, Harwoods Group headed to Coombelands Equestrian Centre in Pulborough, setting the stage for a dazzling display of automotive excellence. Our customers came along to enjoy a spectacular showcase featuring the latest and greatest models across our premium and luxury brands. From the timeless elegance of Aston Martin to the cutting-edge innovation of Audi, Bentley, INEOS Grenadier, Jaguar, Land Rover, McLaren, Volvo, and MAN, Harwoods delivered a fantastic weekend with fun for the whole family!

The weekend kicked off with sunshine, blue skies and a line-up of delicious food, fabulous entertainment and a range of exciting cars. Guests explored the different brands, taking a look inside and outside, taking to the driver’s seat to get a feel for comfort and design. Our brand specialists were on hand to discuss features, performance and book test drives for each enthusiast. 

Saturday held a special treat for Aston Martin lovers, as the brand-new Aston Martin DB12 made its grand debut. With eager fans eagerly awaiting its unveiling, the anticipation reached fever pitch. The moment finally arrived, and the DB12 emerged in all its glory for the crowd to marvel at its breathtaking design and performance.

A lively local band, Just For Tonight, provided a summery soundtrack throughout the weekend. From the tantalising beats to the tantalising bites, Harwoods Festiv-all was the perfect setting for car fans and families. Festival-goers indulged in a range of street food and drink, including a succulent hog roast, sizzling German sausages, mouth watering pizzas and delicious Australian pub food, washed down with hot and iced coffee, sparkling bubbles and fine wines from Hambledon. Our furry friends were treated to their very own ‘Harwoofs’ Hydration Station, complete with water bowls, complimentary Harwoods frisbees, tennis balls and dog bag dispenser. 

The energy of the day heightened as children unleashed their imagination, revelling in creative face painting that transformed them into fantastical creatures. Accompanied by an incredible balloon artist, crafting intricate masterpieces, bringing favourite animals to life and fashioning whimsical roses and swords. With football, mini-golf, and a scavenger hunt, the young adventurers were kept entertained all weekend.
