The Olympia audience on the Thursday afternoon of the London International Horse Show (13-19 December) will have the chance to take part in a question and answer session with Nick Skelton – and meet the man himself.

Anyone who buys or has bought a ticket for the performance will be invited to submit a question online. Five of these will be selected to go into the arena and ask Nick their questions in person.

These five will also be treated to a champagne reception and backstage tour.

Show director Simon Brooks-Ward said tickets are still available for the performance.

““We are really excited to be able to offer our guests the opportunity to speak with Nick Skelton on Thursday afternoon at Olympia,” he added.

“Nick has had a fantastic year and is a true inspiration, so we are looking forward to welcoming him to Olympia.”

Nick is also competing at the show, giving fans the chance to see him in a rare competitive appearance on home soil.

“It’s been a fairy tale year and to compete Big Star in front of the home fans at Olympia is really important to me, so I can give something back to the people who have supported us,” Nick said.

“Olympia is always one of my favourite shows of the year and will be a fantastic finale to 2016.”

Nick’s will not be the only question and answer session at Olympia this year, as fans will also be able to submit questions for Charlotte Dujardin and Carl Hester, as they appear with Valegro on the Tuesday evening, the night before the dressage superstar’s retirement ceremony.

Both Charlotte and Nick will also take part in a celebratory parade of Olympic and Paralympic medallists on the Friday evening of the show.

“We are absolutely delighted to be welcoming such an exceptional group of riders to the Olympia Grand Hall and it will be a privilege to be able to applaud their exceptional achievements at the show,” Mr Brooks-Ward said.
