Lay-soft are providing the bedding for Regent’s Place Plaza Animal Extravaganza – for use on the arena floors …..
Regent’s Place Plaza in London’s West End is set to be transformed next week, with the temporary installation of a major events arena. From Tuesday 31st May to Wednesday 8th June the British Land estate will host a series of top canine and equestrian events.
During six free-to-attend lunchtime events, leading experts in their respective fields will showcase their talents to occupiers at the estate and members of the public.
From Tuesday 31st May to Thursday 2nd June, this year’s Crufts Champion Richard Curtis and other leading handlers will bring their unique canine freestyle display to the arena. Both heelwork to music and freestyle competitions are a highlight at the annual dog show and, during the demonstration, they will showcase the skills, training and dedication needed to attain such a high standard.
The following week, the arena will host three days of the highest quality equestrian events including the grace and elegance of dressage and the thrills and spills of Western Rodeo. Dressage is the ultimate test of the horse and rider’s ability to display both athletic prowess and supreme elegance and will be one of the most hotly contested equine events at next year’s London Olympics. Top riders Paul Hayler and Ginny Oakley will provide an in-depth introduction to this beautiful sport.
James Danby, Director of London Leasing at British Land said: “These events are an exciting prelude to our annual seven-week festival, where hundreds of occupiers, local people and other visitors enjoy lunchtime performances in the Regent’s Place Plaza. At Regent’s Place we aim to provide a wide range of inspirational activities and events for our occupiers and the wider community and I look forward to releasing further information about our upcoming summer programme.”
The fully managed, Regent’s Place estate currently comprises 1.5 million sq ft of office, residential, retail and leisure accommodation. It is served by four London underground tube stations with six different tube lines and has three mainline stations close by.
Currently home to nearly 10,000 workers, Regent’s Place provides a wide range of amenities, from cafés and bars, to the New Diorama Theatre. Public art and performance is a key feature of life at the estate, with a series of regular events held in the main public square, ranging from food markets to salsa dancing, as well as public art that includes works by Edward Hodges Baily, Antony Gormley, Ben Langlands and Nikki Bell and Liam Gillick. Recent additions include pieces by Julian Opie, Gary Webb, and Siôn Parkinson, as well as the Regent’s Place Pavilion created by award-winning architects Carmody Groarke.
