Cheltenham Racecourse

Wednesday 17 - Thursday 18 April 2019

spring into action 

 

with the festival fever dying down, and spring in the air, it's time to celebrate the fiercely contested april meeting

It's no easy task following The Festival™ presented by Magners. But April’s two-day meeting is the perfect time to reflect on achievements past and remember that racing, no matter the event, is competitive and above all else, a joyous occasion.

 

For the final chance to watch the professionals test themselves on the track before the summer break, head to Cheltenham on April 17th and 18th 2019. Last spring’s feature event – the £60,000 Grade Two Barchester Healthcare Silver Trophy Chase – certainly gave The Festival a run for its money with a spectacular finish by Traffic Fluide.

 

family fun entertainment

Join us this Easter holidays for exciting action on, and off the track. The April Meeting Thursday will see the Tattersalls Sales Arena transform into a Family Fun Zone. What better way to keep the children entertained than with free activities from Cheltenham favourite Showtime Shane, balloon art from Twistopher and Twistina and much more.
