BDS Annual Show

The British Driving Society Annual Show is held on the 3rd Sunday in June by Kind permission of HM The Queen in Windsor Great Park.

This event has been running since 1965 and 2022 is the British Driving Society’s 65th anniversary coinciding with The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee so it will be a truly memorable event.

With a variety of classes for all our members from the highly contested Novice Horse/Pony, exercise and pleasure driving classes, Trade, Hackney and Cobs in Wagons, Donkeys and Mules and our Young Drivers of the future.

All classes run over 3 rings surrounded by ringside parking which can be pre booked and the availability of lunch in the sponsors marquee makes a great opportunity for  spectators to come and have a wonderful day watching  the largest array of carriages that will be seen at any one event through the year.

The Worshipful Company of Coachmakers present their annual award  during the day and the spectacle of the Concours d’Elegance drive around the private estate of Windsor Great Park with turnouts meeting in the ring before departing is not to be missed.

This Show is for all of our members to come and participate, watch and have an enjoyable day with the final “Parade” past the Royal Box, no other show has this prestigious opportunity, is the icing on the cake.

Everyone is welcome to book ringside parking with a picnic or lunch in the sponsors marquee and there are great opportunities for sponsors to promote their company with packages on offer which include presentation of rosettes in their class.
