The Dalwhinnie Crook Charity Polo Match

18 Jul 2013

On June 15 2013, Halcyon Gallery hosted the sixth annual Dalwhinnie Crook Charity Polo match in the glorious surroundings of Longdole Polo Club. Since its debut in 2007, The Dalwhinnie Crook Charity Polo Match has rapidly established itself as the most glamorous and sought after event of the social season. The match is a high octane, dynamic game played by world class players led by Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Henry of Wales, playing for their chosen charities.

Halcyon Gallery supported the two charities chosen by Their Royal Highnesses; The Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund and MapAction. Halcyon Gallery welcomed partners; Bentley, NetJets Europe and DeLaneau, and guests enjoyed an extraordinary day with one of the rarest motor cars in history, the Bentley Blue Train, on display, beautiful current Bentleys were also present, exquisite artisan timepieces by DeLaneau and NetJets Europe guests enjoyed the rare masterpieces on show by Renoir and Degas. Contemporary paintings and sculpture were beautifully curated and some of the artists were at the event including Mitch Griffiths, Pedro Paricio, David Wightman and Santiago Montoya.

Philanthropy is a pivotal part of Halcyon Gallery’s ethos. We recognise the power that art has, to inspire and to move people and we are committed to channelling that inspiration to contribute positively to the community.

Our goal is that, through our enduring relationships with a wide range of charitable organisations, art can work as a catalyst to produce a tangible positive effect on youth, education, and the environment.
