The Oaks Driving Club


The Oaks Driving Club was formed in 1976 by a group of enthusiasts who wanted to provide the opportunity for carriage drivers to meet and show their turnouts locally. We cover the East Sussex area.


No matter what you drive, how little or much experience you have, even if you don't drive, you can be assured of a warm welcome at The Oaks Driving Club.




To join the Oaks or enter an event: -

Thank you all for your support of the club over the past rather difficult year. Please get your membership renewed either online or snail mail to take advantage of the reduced members entry fees for the great list of events your committee are organising for 2022.


We will be recognising and thanking all our judges, stewards and helpers with a complimentary lunch after the business side of the AGM, invitations will be sent after Christmas. If you are not a steward etc but would like to join us for lunch please send £10 payable to the Oaks Driving Club to myself by 1st February.


On behalf of the committee I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year


Merry Christmas

Trophies awarded in 2019


If you were awarded a trophy at the Oaks AGM in 2019, can you please return the trophy (clean and engraved) to Jan Curd (54 Ersham Road, Hailsham BN27 3LG) by 31st December.

Please don’t rely on returning your trophy on the day of the AGM because if you are unable to attend at the last minute the new recipient will be disappointed.


Thank you for those of you who already have returned your trophy.
