Glorious Game at Holland & Holland During Game Week 2023 – Thursday 9th November 2023

Building on the resounding success of the 2022 event, Glorious Game returns for a second year with an enhanced format to enthrall shooting and fine-dining enthusiasts alike.  

This celebration of game, gastronomy and shooting, once again brings the talents of Holland & Holland’s Executive Chef Joshua Hunter to the fore. This year he is joined by the extraordinary skills and culinary prowess of Mark Kempson (Kitchen  W8) and Lisa Goodwin-Allen (Northcote) both holders of Michelin Stars.  

After a light breakfast on arrival, guests will receive a briefing from Head of Instruction,  the legendary Chris Bird, before heading out in the grounds for a Holland & Holland  ‘Royal Flush’ shooting experience. This exciting new format will emulate various game birds across five stands, with various prizes available, not just for the team with the highest score. Both novice and experienced shots are welcome, with or without their own shotgun. 

To honour the traditional format of a driven game day, ‘Elevenses’ will be served,  with Eat Wild providing some delicious and creative ways to serve game-based light bites and smaller dishes. Luscombe will be showcasing their delicious range of soft drinks, to ensure shooting guests remain hydrated and trigger fingers stay sharp.  

Once shooting has concluded guests will be welcomed back to the lodge with a  selection of delightfully British sparkling wines from event partners Exton Park and a warming tipple of sloe gin from our friends at Foxdentons. 

An exquisite tasting menu will be served in banquet style by your three chefs, who have created a memorable menu, celebrating game and seasonal, British produce.  Craig Bancroft Managing Director of Northcote will be choosing some wonderful wines alongside our very own Sean Arthur and between them, they will showcase some fascinating wine pairings that will demonstrate classical pairings and some more unusual and pleasantly unexpected surprises. 

This year’s event promises to be an indulgent, fun-filled celebration of our countryside and sporting traditions.
