We look forward to welcoming you to The Festival™ presented by Magners from 16-19 March, but why not join us at Festival Trials Day on 31 January?

 

Finalise your choices for The Festival at Festival Trials Day, before all roads lead to The Festival™ presented by Magners in March.

 

In 2019, we saw three Festival Trials Day winners continue their winning streak and win at The Cheltenham Festival 2019. 

 

Join us for our last raceday before The Cheltenham Festival. Huge crowds gather for an atmosphere full of anticipation as The Festival is within touching distance. 

 

Catch a glimpse of Festival contenders as they show the world what they're really made of.

THE STAGE IS SET

 

It's the last chance to witness racing at Cheltenham Racecourse before The Festival™, and that means a superb comepetive day of Jump racing.

 

With seven races on the card, it's the time to finalise your choices and favourites, before all roads lead back to Cheltenham in March. 

 

Last year's meeting was sadly abandoned but in 2020 we witnessed an excellent day of racing with names such as Paisley Park and Santini securing victories.

 

Please note: We are a cashless venue. On-course betting facilities will take cash and there are cash machines on site.
