This horsebox once belonged to “Fenella”, a fabulous grey Arabian Filly. 

In 2021 Fenella’s horsebox was lovingly converted into a luxury horsebox bar & café. Painted in Farrow & Ball Slipper Satin cream, cascaded with pink peonies, vintage vibes and sophistication, I fell in love with her the first time I saw her – which sparked my passion to run my own events business. 

With a degree in hospitality management and over 20 years of event experience from weddings to high-end corporate events (even organising family and friends special occasions and there’s been quite a lot), I am someone who just loves to host and create lasting happy memories. Creativity, excellent organisation skills, attention to detail and having a sense of fun is me in a nutshell.

In April 2024 my dream came true. I purchased The Fabulous Filly and relocated her to West Sussex. I wanted my love of all things art deco and vintage to shine through The Fabulous Filly’s luxury horsebox bar & café. Offering a full bar including beautiful signature cocktails, barista style coffee’s, impeccable service as well as creating a welcoming addition at any event.

 Unique in her own way, my vision is to ensure we provide the prefect package unique to you and your event.

 I can’t wait for the amazing adventures with Fenella
