About Get Galloping with Clare Balding

FAMILIES & 8+

Charlie Bass has bought a racehorse but there's a big problem - he won't leave the stable and he certainly won't gallop. How will Charlie win the Derby and save the farm with a racehorse who won't run? Much-loved broadcaster and horse expert Clare Balding presents her debut book for children, The Racehorse Who Wouldn't Gallop, in an event full of horse-related hilarity.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Get Galloping with Clare Balding are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
