Rock ‘n’ Horsepower – the annual family festival at Hurtwood Park Polo Club, deep in the Surrey Hills countryside, this year will present the Golden Stone Years – A TRIBUTE TO BRIAN JONES, polo, exotic cars, great music and lots more, and it all happens on Saturday August 17th.

Polo, exotic cars, great music

This one-day celebration of the Brian Jones legacy is designed to welcome and entertain all because this music-based, cross generational day out will be hosted by Donovan and his wife Linda Leitch, with Kenney and Jayne Jones, and will be attended by family, friends, and Brian’s musical peers.

Donovan looks forward to performing

The famous singer, songwriter and guitarist says “As Brian’s family we waited for the right timing to celebrate his musical genius and now, with the huge support of Kenney and Jayne Jones, this is the year! Join my wife Linda, Brian and Linda’s grandson Joolz Jones, and me for an All Star Tribute to the undisputed Maestro who innovated the way modern roots rock music is played and performed. See you all there!”
