The pub was packed, the beer was flowing and spirits were high, but it wasn’t to be for England. Everything clicked for Ireland and, well, the complete opposite happened for Johnno’s boys. Disappointing, but there will always be the Millennium Stadium. Bring on the World Cup!
Taking of adrenaline-pumping events, the Festival of Speed press day took place up the road the other day and there were plenty of great cars about – check out this video. If classic vehicles are your thing, the Goodwood Breakfast Club hosts its Soft Top Sunday on 2 April. Get up early, get up close and personal with some unbelievable machinery and then get over to the Horse & Groom for one of Mal’s Sunday roasts.
If you prefer art to automobiles, Goodwood House is hosting an antiques and fine art fair between 25 and 27 March. The Robin and Lucienne Day: Design and Modern Interior exhibition at Pallant House Gallery also kicks off soon (26 March). The Days were iconic designers and local residents, so it will be well worth going along.
After all this culture, you might fancy relaxing with an award-winning beer and a bite to eat, followed by a stroll on the nearby South Downs. The spring weather means there are plenty of organised walks taking place, covering Sidlesham, Chichester, West Dean, Pagham and Slindon. The Horse & Groom in East Ashling makes a great base for all this healthy activity.
