Arena Hire

An event at Ledston is an event to remember.indoorarenaatLedston

The 17th century listed buildings of the Ledston Estate provide a stunning backdrop to our indoor arena. Seating 350, the arena was once the training venue for Britain's dressage, show-jumping and pentathlon teams and, in the 1970s, was the North of England’s premier site for equestrian events. Now renovated to superb specifications, the arena is once again buzzing with regular showjumping, dressage, showing and other events. In addition to its equestrian use, this unique space is ideal for a diverse range of events requiring a seating gallery. Ledston has easy access to and from the motorway network and excellent on-site parking facilities. The arena is for hire on a daily or hourly basis.
