Celebrities brave the weather for annual British Polo Day

Tuesday June 23, 2015

Made in Chelsea's Hugo Taylor, Mary Archer, Stephanie Powers and Lady Violet and Lady Alice Manners were among the guests at the annual British Polo Day on Saturday 20 June, held at Urs Schwarzenbach's private Black Bears estate in Henley-on-Thames.

This year's game celebrated ties with Mexico, and with a growing thunderstorm overhead, the British and Mexican teams took to the pitch.

With guests braving the British weather pitchside to watch a thrilling match, the Mexicans emerged triumphant with a 3 – 2 victory.

The official British Polo Day Great Britain Prizegiving marked the end of the day, and amongst others, saw The Royal Salute 'Most Valuable Player' being presented to JJ de Alba, while The Harrods ‘Luck of the Draw’ went to HELLO! Magazine’s Juliet Herd.

Hugo, who co-owns Taylor Morris Eyewear, later shared pictures on Instagram of his fun day out, including one of revelers enjoying an evening DJ set on the Rosebery.
