NEW LOOK BURGHLEY AT WWW.BURGHLEY-HORSE.CO.UK

Already one of the most popular Event sites on the internet, The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials (30 August – 2 September) website has a fresh new look to be launched at 2pm on Tuesday 10 April.

www.burghley-horse.co.uk is designed to appeal to everyone from ‘silver surfers’ to the ‘dot com generation’ with the aim of making it even more user-friendly and informative. It will be a ‘one-stop shop’ for all visitors to Burghley, both virtual and in-person.

Brand new ideas at burghley-horse.co.uk:
* A first for a UK Three Day Event - the website has a free RSS feed. You can subscribe to this web tool and have any new material delivered straight to your desktop, live as it happens!
* A select line of merchandise – based on best sellers from the Event merchandise.
* First Time Burghley – a quick guide to help newcomers to the Event find their way around.

Event Director, Elizabeth Inman, said: “Last year, our website received over 1.5 million page requests and around 120,000 distinct hosts. With its fresh new look, we’re delighted that it will now be even easier to use, continuing to provide visitors to the Event, as well as our international followers, a window into Burghley.”

Tickets will continue to be available through www.burghley-horse.co.uk. Both online bookings and the Box Office (01933 304744) open on 1 May, and full details may be viewed now, so that you can start planning your diary.

Subscribers to the regular, free e-newsletter now have the chance to win a year’s subscription to Country Living Magazine. There will be one of these subscriptions to give away each month until the Event, and the e-newsletter is always crammed with breaking news and insider information - so sign up without delay!
